The chemical company recorded a profit of £167.1m for 2004 under UK GAAP, a bottom line that climbed to £187.3 when IFRS was applied to the accounts.

The main contributing factors to the added profit was an extra £15.1m that no longer subject to goodwill amortisation and £4.1m that was freed up because of changes to how deferred taxation is dealt with under IFRS.
