The firms believes it can maximise its margin by offering advice on procurement strategy, leadership and troubleshooting.
Financial director Stephen Greenwood said: "We're looking for anything to help us build on our multidisciplinary strategy, principally in the UK." Greenwood said he was delighted with the group's pre-tax profit figure of £912 000, up from £759 000 in 1998, an increase of 20%.
The figures for the past six months also show operating profit up from £836 000 to £948 000. The company said it would be making its first dividend payment to shareholders for four years after several years of difficult trading. Shareholders are to get 0.5p a share on 12 May.
Greenwood hopes the share price will increase in the wake of the dividend payment. It now stands at 39p.
He said: "We feel the company's share price is undervalued."
