Engineering services provider Chieftain Group improved its first half underlying profits.

It reported flat profits after exceptional items - that was an exceptional gain of £237,000 in the first half of 2007.

However, underlying profits increased from £810,000 to £1.07m in the six months to June 2008. Revenues increased from £21.6m to £22.8m.

The improvement was helped by a swing from loss to profit in the environmental services business. During the period Chieftain won a major contract for the fabrication and fitting of pipework for an oil and gas project.

Net cash is £4.33m. Chieftain has increased its interim dividend from 2.5p to 3.3p a share.

Demand remains strong. The order book of £69m stretches well into next year.

At 186.5p a share, Chieftain is valued at £16.3m.
