Full-year profits up at Anite

Software company Anite’s full-year profit rose 23 per cent, it said yesterday, helped by a strong demand for its handset-testing business. The company, which provides handset-testing systems to wireless companies and reservation software to the travel industry, said adjusted pretax profit rose to £34.3m for the year ended 30 April, from £28m a year earlier. Total revenue rose eight per cent to £132.5m.
