- Flow control and instrumentation group Rotork has reported that performance in the period was in line with expectations amid global disruption.

The firm reports that revenue was up mid-single digits year-on-year on an organic constant currency basis, in part reflecting the weighting of first half 2020 sales to the second quarter.

The firm reported net cash of £190.8 million at 4 April 2021, up over £12 million from the start of the year.

The current cash position reflects the firm’s decision to pay the £54.9m dividend (6.3p per share) in respect of 2020 in one payment, payable on 21 May.

The group stated that it remains committed to delivering sustainable mid to high single-digit revenue growth and mid-20s adjusted operating profit margins over time. Rotork will publish 2021 half-year results on Tuesday 3 August 2021.
