- Tristel, the manufacturer of infection prevention, contamination control and hygiene products, expects its FY results to be ahead of previously upgraded expectations.

Tristel announced in its Interim Statement on 3 March 2014 that it had experienced a strong start to the second half across all areas of the business.

"The Company is now confident that the momentum evident throughout the first half will continue through to the end of the financial year and beyond, resulting in pre-tax profit for the year to 30 June 2014 of no less than £1.5m (2013: £0.4m adjusted pre-tax profit)," it said in a trading update.

"This level of profit is ahead of current market expectations."

Tristel's balance sheet continued to strengthen with cash balances exceeding £2.2m (£1.5m at 31 December 2013).
