Software outsourcing firm Escher Group Holdings (LSE:ESCH) has been flying lately, its stock jumping almost 40% in the last four months. However, this follows a bumpy five years and today's share price of 190p is still some way below the 220p it traded at half a decade ago.
Anpario has achieved strong sales growth in the year to date, shareholders at today's annual general meeting will be told.
Chairman Richard Rose will say: "The company has achieved strong sales growth in the year to date directly attributable to strategic initiatives implemented in 2016 and providing confidence to accelerate the investment in recruitment of sales and technical personnel."
Rose will step down on 1 September after 11 years as non-executive chairman.
