More work cleaning up cells, crime scenes, hospitals and houses trashed by tenants, boosted React Group PLC’s (LON:REAT) turnover over the past 12 months.
The extreme cleaner's sales rose 48% to £3.3mln in the year to September, with half of that work coming from the emergency services.
Can start to return to profit
React has also been tidying up its own structure with three businesses merged into one and a management overhaul.
Costs associated with the restructuring, plus bad debt and redundancy costs meant £1.34mln of one-off costs, which pushed losses up to £1.93mln from £458,000.
Gill Eates, executive chairman, said React now had a solid business from which it can grow and begin to return to profit.
