Profits fall at Domino Printing

Barcode-printer maker Domino Printing Sciences reported a nine per cent fall in first-half profit, as the fallout from the debt crisis in Europe prompted customers to delay orders, and the company said sales for the year would be similar to those achieved last year. For the six months ended 30 April, Domino Printing reported an underlying pre-tax profit of £24.7m, down from £27.1m last year.
