Firm says net cash also on the rise

Galliford Try has upgraded its profit forecast for the year with the firm saying it expects its bottom line to now be 5% above previous estimates.

Analysts had been expecting revenue at the firm, which will release interim results on 6 March, to be between £1.43bn and £1.49bn for the year to June 2024.
