Carr's Milling Industries Plc. (CRM.L) on Tuesday said profit before tax in the first half of the year increased from last year, helped by a 12 percent growth in revenue. The company expects the results for the year to be ahead of expectations.

For the 26 weeks ended March 3, profit before taxation increased to 7.44 million pounds from 5.7 million pounds.

However, profit attributable to equityshareholders declined to 4.58 million pounds from 5.15 million pounds as the prior year benefited from discontinued operations. Earnings per share declined to 50.0 pence from 58.3 pence.

Revenue climbed to 196.0 million from 175.5 million as Agriculture revenue increased 12 percent to 147.2 milion pounds.

The company said a first interim dividend of 7.25 pence per share, up from last year's 6.5 pence per share, will be paid on May 25 to shareholders on the register on May 4.

Chris Holmes, CEO, said, "Following the profit growth achieved in the first half the Board believes the results for the year will be ahead of the expectations that the company had at the beginning of the year, and is well positioned for sustained profitable growth."

Rare commodities are worth more than good is a Chinese adage. And more so when it is in the sought-after drug space. Rare and ultra-rare diseases, also called orphan and ultra-orphan diseases, as the names imply, affect very small numbers of patients. So why the clamor? Shares of steel giant ArcelorMittal were losing around 4 percent in the early morning trading in Amsterdam after the company reported sharp decline in first-quarter EBITDA, a key earnings metric, as sales were weak with lower prices and production. Net loss, however, narrowed from last year. The company also confirmed its forecast for annual EBITDA, which is lower than last year. As the din settles down on a dismal quarter at one of the world's exciting tech company, it is time to sit back and take stock of what went wrong and will the wrong be righted in the near term?
