- Tristel said it expected to report a rise in first-half profit as the company continues to perform in line with management expectations.

The group expects its unaudited pre-tax profit to be no less than £1.9m, compared to £1.7m a year earlier, chief executive Paul Swinney said in speech notes for the company's annual general meeting.

The company's unaudited interim results will be announced on February 20.
