Wilmington has swung to a FY pretax loss of £3.4m, from a profit of £10.3m, due to non-cash goodwill impairment of £15.7m.
Final dividend was 4.3p a share, from 4p, taking the total to 8.1p, from 7.7p.
Chair Mark Asplin commented:
"This year has seen Wilmington deliver a positive financial performance overall. Our strategy and vision have been successfully implemented, creating a more compelling offering through a knowledge-based business structure and customer offering.
"This offering continues to meet customer demand in products and services and in international territories positioning us well for continued profitable growth.
"The new financial year has continued to see good growth from Risk & Compliance and Insight but, as expected, a weaker performance from Legal and Finance.
"We enter the year ahead with a solid platform for growth and good market positions. We will continue to invest across the business to deliver significant organic revenue growth, supplemented by selective earnings enhancing acquisitions consistent with our strategic objectives."
