RPS intends to announce Full Year Results for the year ended 31 December 2008 on 4 March 2009.

RPS performed well in 2008. As a result the Board expects to announce full year profit (before tax and amortisation) towards the top end of expectations. Working capital management during the year was good with the result that net bank debt at the year end was reduced to approximately £29 million. The Group has bank facilities of £125 million in place until 2013.
