DAWSON HOLDINGS, the Aim-listed group which is seeking admission to the full market next week, yesterday blamed the strength of sterling and mounting product development costs for a marginal downturn in first-half profits.

Pre-tax profits before exceptional items eased to pounds 14.4m from pounds 14.5m a year earlier, despite a continued strong performance from the news wholesale unit Surridge Dawson.
