De La Rue profits nose-dive

Twenty and fifty pound notes

De La Rue, a UK banknote printer, on Tuesday reported a preliminary profit of £40.4 million for the year ending March 26, down 63% from last year, owing to exceptional losses on paper production.

Preliminary reports show the papermaker incurred operating costs of £29 million ($47 million) from "paper production quality issues" and £2.6 million
