The Group has continued to perform well in the first half of the financial year, improving across all areas, increasing revenue, profit (before exceptional items) and margin. Average month-end cash has also remained very strong at £180m, and the Group is effectively managing industry-wide material shortages and inflation.

We are making good progress against our Sustainable Growth Strategy, including our target of 3% divisional operating margin. I am excited about the future given our excellent people, strong balance sheet, market-leading sector positions, investment in supplier relationships and high-quality order book. Bill Hocking Chief Executive, Galliford Try
