Cardno forecasts record first half profit of A$34M - A$36M


Cardno Limited expects to report a Net Profit After Tax for the half year ending December 2011 of between A$34 million and A$36 million, an increase of up to 13.6% on the previous corresponding period of A$31.7 million. The current profit estimate is based on unaudited management results and current forecasts. Final results are expected to be released on 14 February 2012.
Cardno Managing Director, Mr Andrew Buckley noted that the increase in profit in the first half is the result of continuing strong performance from the US operations, improving conditions in Australia and the contribution from recent acquisitions.
