The construction and property group, Henry Boot, has reported that with the pre-tax profit being up by almost 70% than the previous half, it has had one of the “best ever” half years. The company has shown a pre-tax profit of £38.8m for the six months to 30 June 2022, up 68 per cent from £23.1m in the same period of 2021. It has had a strong stream of residential land sales and industrial development activity post- COVID. Revenue increased by 11.9 per cent to £144.4m, from £129m the year before, driven by land disposals and property development completions.
