Consistent results for Toll

February 19 - Transport and logistics provider, Toll Group, has revealed that its revenue for the six months ended December 31, 2013 was in line with the year before at AUD4.5 billion (USD4.05 billion).

The group's net profit after tax before non-recurring items increased 1.4 percent to AUD176 million (USD158.7 million) and its interim dividend increased by 0.5 cents to 13 cents per share.

Toll has continued to invest in its core network businesses despite ongoing economic and market driven challenges in both domestic and international markets, particularly in the resources sector, said the company's managing director, Brian Kruger.

Kruger added that he was not assuming any near-term improvements in the external economic environment, so Toll will continue to focus on improving returns through winning new business, increasing productivity and looking for further opportunities to improve efficiency and management of operating costs.
