- Solid State said trading results for the year to March 31 in the group's core businesses are expected to be in line with market expectations.

"The overall final result for the year will be dependent on the completion of negotiations in relation to the settlement of the terminated contract with the Ministry of Justice ("MOJ"). These negotiations are now at an advanced stage," the company said in a statement.

Solid State has entered its new financial year with healthy order books. As at 31 March 2016, on a like-for-like basis, the Group order backlog was GBP13.94 million (2015: GBP14.41m) and including Ginsbury, which was acquired during the year, stood at GBP15.34 million.
