- Holders Technology broke even in the six months to the end of May despite revenues slipping to £7.7m from £8.0m.

Holders reported a loss of £0.1m last year.

Chairman Rudolf W. Weinreich said: "I am pleased to be able to report that we achieved an improvement in the result for the first half of the current year as compared to the particularly difficult comparable period in the preceding year with a pre-tax profit of £27,000 (2012: loss £99,000).

"Both the PCB and LED business segments achieved slightly improved pre-tax results, although total sales were 3.8% lower than 2012."
