- Holders Technology fell into the red in the six months to the end of May - and warns that the full year results are likely to be below market expectations.

Revenues fell to £8.0m from £10.1m and there as a pre-tax loss of £0.1m against a profit of £0.3m in 2011.

The company said the first half was very adversely affected by the continuing economic uncertainties in the European PCB market, particularly in the opening months of the period.

Executive chairman Rudolf Weinreich said: "We have thoroughly reviewed the prospects for the second half of the year, and while we do expect an improvement in trading which will offset the shortfall in the first half, it appears probable that the outturn for the full year will be below market expectation."
