- Audio and music products company Focusrite booked an 11% rise in annual profit as product launches helped boost sales.

Revenue climbed 13% to £84.7m and the company declared an full-year dividend of 3.8p per share, up 15% on-year.

Chief executive Tim Carroll said growth in profits had been driven by a number of factors, including new product launches such as its third-generation of Scarlett audio interfaces.
