Synergy shows good turnaround in tough market

Synergy shows good turnaround in tough market

Technology company Synergy International Ltd has announced a profit after tax of $664,000 for the year to 31 March 2003 and has declared a fully imputed dividend of three cents per share. This will be paid on 1 July 2003 to all shareholders recorded as at 30 May 2003.

Chairman, Philip Shewell, said the improved performance was a direct result of a strong focus on operating efficiencies combined with a broader revenue base. Last year Synergy made a loss of $413,000 after tax.

The turnaround was achieved on revenues of $33.0 million compared with $31.9 million in 2002. The operating cash surplus for the year was $2.5 million, up $1.75 million. Mr. Shewell said the strong cash reserves in the company would allow Synergy to create value from new initiatives in the coming year.

International operations continued to provide a good income base for Synergy, up $400,000 to $6.4 million for the year. The UK business showed strong growth with revenue of $2.8 million and Asia contributed $3.5 million. Ends
