Chief executive Alan Foy said: “In our second year since our Aim admission we have delivered another strong set of results against our strategy of ongoing accumulation of meter assets and the introduction of our smart meter technology.

“Our second-half performance in particular has been very pleasing building on contracts won in 2011 and 2012. We continue to strengthen our team and our financial resources and look to 2013 for another successful year.”
