- Bonding solutions company Scapa said it expected its first-half revenue to fall 24%, though it said the extent of the fall wasn't as bad as expected.

Revenue for the six months through September was seen falling to £122.0 million, down from £160.8 million year-on-year.

Scapa said it had continued to track ahead of its Covid-19 plan and that revenues were ahead of its previous expectations.

'The combination of the better-than-anticipated business performance in the first half, cost containment actions and continued improvement across both divisions has put the group on a solid foundation as it enters the second half,' Scapa said.
