- Judges Scientific has warned its interim results will be hit by sluggish orders.

Shareholders at today's annual general meeting will be told that the group has failed to see a pick-up in orders.

It says: "At the time of the release of the 2015 annual results on 21st March 2016, we indicated that order bookings in the first ten weeks of 2016 had been low, which had been our experience over the previous two years. However, as of today, 20 weeks into the current financial year, unlike the previous year we have not seen a pick-up in order bookings. This will negatively impact our interim results and, should the trend continue, has the potential to affect the Group's performance for the year as a whole."
