Russell Taylor, CEO of ITE Group plc, commented:

"ITE has continued to expand its business this year through a mixture of organic and acquisition led growth. The Group has now firmly established itself in the Asian exhibition markets through its investments in ABEC in India, Tradelink and ECMI in Malaysia and, since the end of the financial year, in Sinostar in China. Good organic growth across our core portfolios in Russia and the CIS together with a strong biennial performance from the Moscow International Oil and Gas Exhibition have combined with the newly acquired businesses in Asia to deliver record financial and operating results.

ITE is well positioned in growth markets and the Board remains confident in ITE's growth prospects. As we enter the new financial year, trading is in line with our expectations and we are well placed to continue our growth, both organically and through selective acquisitions."
