Petar Cvetkovic, Chief Executive Officer of DX, said:
"We have continued to make steady progress with our OneDX programme. This substantial and ongoing investment across the business supports our aim of providing enhanced delivery solutions to our customers. It is also creating a more efficient operating structure to underpin our offering, which is based on a market-leading range of services, value and high customer service levels.
"Trading conditions in the second half remained challenging and given these tough conditions the performance of the business for the year has been satisfactory. The group continues to generate strong cash flows, which supports our investment programme, including our proposed major new hub, and our progressive dividend policy.
"Looking forward, our OneDX programme remains a key focus and we have a solid strategy supported by a robust balance sheet. Trading conditions continue to be tough but we are well placed to take advantage of any improvement and we have started the year in a positive manner. The Board remains confident of our strategy to deliver long term growth."
