Looking ahead, Gibraltar will continue with suspension of quantitative guidance and revisit this practice in three months.

The company noted that while it delivered strong financial performance in the first half of 2020 and continues to experience a growing backlog, the uncertain pace of an economic recovery in the current environment continue to make providing reliable quantitative guidance difficult.
