Moss Bros reopened its Suit Co and Savoy Taylors Guild shops in the City yesterday despite the bomb damage. It lifted its dividend for the first time in three years, from 5p to 51 2 p. Pre-tax profits grew 74 per cent to pounds 2.3m in the year to 30 January. After stripping out new stores, sales were up 5.5 per cent, with the Cecil Gee stores producing the fastest sales growth. The group has accumulated a cash pile of pounds 14m. Photograph: Brian Harris
