Group revenues rose to £575.9m – up from £570.0m last time – and the dividend is increased to 36% to 4.5p.
CEO Greg Fitzgerald said: “We are currently on track to deliver the objectives of our three year housebuilding expansion plan during the next financial year.
“The spring selling season remains crucial, and although it is too early to judge whether it will be sustained, the improvement in our sales rate during the first few weeks of 2011 is encouraging.
“Our strategy for managing our construction business in challenging times is working well and the underlying results give us confidence that we will be able to grow the business again when markets improve.
“Although the economic outlook is still uncertain, the board is encouraged by the group’s performance and progress in the first half of the financial year, and is confident in its strategy for delivering the objectives of its expansion plan.”
