21 April 2011 – interim management statement

The marketing services group Communisis has announced that trading in the first three months of the year has been according to plan.  There has been stronger than expected demand in certain high margin areas of the group’s business and this has made up for lower demand in other areas.  More normal trading is expected in the second quarter and forecasts for the year remain unchanged.  With pre-tax profits for the year still expected to be £7.3m for earnings per share of 3.7p the shares are a BUY.
