Premiere, the jobs agency opening in Dublin today and with nearly 30 branches in Britain, lifted interim profits from pounds 210,000 to pounds 319,000; around pounds 1.1m against pounds 96l,000 seems likely for the year. The shares, floated at 133p, rose 3p to 162.5p.
American Port Services rose 8.5p to 186p, a peak. The company looks vulnerable to a bid. Aggressive Jacobs Holdings sits menacingly on 6.5 per cent.Reuse content
