The Newcastle-based company is expected to report sales of £283m and pre-tax profits of £73m, for the six months to 31 March, reports the Financial Times.

Although the share price is relatively steady at around 120-125p, this is 47% below its 52 week high recorded in mid-April 2002.

The accounting software giant’s shares were last trading at 125p.
