An interim dividend of 30 cents was declared.

Francois DiedrechsenRevenue swelled 131.7% to R2.23 billion, operating profit jumped 108.1% to R398 million and order book grew 113% to R4.9 billion.

Francois Diedrechsen, Financial and Commercial Director of Raubex Group, said the performance was in-line with our expectations.

"During the period we also successfully bedded down a number of acquisitions, the financial effects of which are included in this set of results," he said.

He added that the acquisitions were value-enhancing and performing well.

"Importantly, the depth and breadth of skills and capacity that they've brought to the Group positioned us well to continue taking full advantage of the spend driven by the government and private sector," said Diedrechsen.

Looking ahead, the group expects to deliver a strong performance in the second half as road upgrades gather momentum in the lead up the 2010 Fifa World Cup.

"With the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project now underway, we expect the South African National Roads Agency Limited (SANRAL) to be announcing a number of reasonably sized contracts to be released for tender in the coming months," Raubex said.

SANRAL remains Raubex largest client, accounting for some 40% of its revenues.
