The company’s total revenue fell from £286.9m in the first half of 2019 to £258.1m in the first six months of this year, a fall of 10%. More concerning will be the firm’s pre-tax profits, which fell 59% over the period, from £20.9m to £7.1m, as is the fact that there is no end in sight to the Covid-19 pandemic, which CEO Eoghan O’Lionaird claimed was responsible for the company’s latest struggles.
