IT services company UXC Limited (ASX:UXC) has reported a 153% increase in FY10 profit to $18.6 million, despite the drain of losses from discontinued government programs.
Revenue grew 8% to $686 million, and its continuing operations saw ebitda growth of 9%.
But in its annual report, UXC said it had been hit by losses related to federal government programs in the areas of renewable energy.
As a result, its discontinued Field Solutions group recorded losses and charges after tax of $21.5 million for the year.
Dropping the operations has resulted in a much improved outlook for FY11, UXC added.
