Ecovista posts a pre-tax loss of £168,000 for the six months to the end of June compared with £92,000 a year ago.

The  increased  loss  was due to the higher administrative expenses  incurred  by  the company  as  a  result  of  the acquisition made in the period, plus a one off cost of  £100,000  to  the  chairman satisfied by the issue of new shares.  This resulted in a record growth of the company's total assets to £1.8m from £489k for the comparable period last year.
