This contract win, together with existing contracts, is expected to increase the number of contracts "on billing" to over 600 in the third quarter of 2010.
The Company is actively pursuing a number of significant opportunities and the Board are hopeful that a number of these will be completed in the current financial year.

The Board anticipates that the profit before tax for the six months to 30 June 2010 will be ahead of the same period in 2009, and continues to believe that the full year result will be in line with market expectations.
Although there is still some level of caution within all the markets the Company services, the Board continues to note some encouraging signs of increased activity and greater commercial visibility. The Board believes that the Company will continue the progress it has made in 2009 and the first half of 2010 and is well positioned to take advantage of any real economic upturn."
