Novae reports H1 2010 profits

Specialist insurance group Novae Group plc has reported its interim results for the first six months of 2010.

The firm made a pre-tax profit of £13.6m (before currency gains on non-monetary items), a return to the black after a £2.1m loss during the same period last year.

This follows annual pre-tax profits in 2009 of £17.7m.

Gross written premiums rose just over 50% from £220.3m to £333.4m in the first six months of 2010 and investment income increased by a similar margin, rising from £10.9m to £16.4m.

Total dividends per share increased from 3p to 3.3p and total net assets rose from £279.7m to £318.8m.

Chief Executive Matthew Fosh has expressed confidence that the measures Novae is undertaking will help the firm to achieve its strategic objectives and enhance return on equity.
