Domino Printing's full-year profits declined as the group invested further in its digital printing business and research and development.
The British-based developer of inkjet and laser printing posted underlying pre-tax profit of £53m for the year to the end of October, down 1% from the prior year.
Revenue jumped 8% to £335.7m, supported by new products and growth in the US, Germany and China.
Investment in research and development rose to £19.5m from £16.7m in 2012.
The company said "major disappointment" of the year has been the weak performance of publishing and events company TEN Media, acquired in 2011. It was expected to generate positive returns during 2013, but ongoing delays and a shortage of funds have hampered progress and held back profit growth.
"Uncertainty around the future of the business has also caused us to consider the value of the investment the group holds in TEN Media to be permanently impaired, and we have written down the value of that investment to nil," said Chairman Peter Byrom.
"The potential for the TEN Media business in the future remains uncertain."
He added that the company has taken action to invest in areas of the business with the strongest growth potential which is expected to fuel stronger organic sales growth in 2014.
The group recommended a dividend of 21.66p, up 5% on the prior year.
AIM-listed property firm Terrace Hill Group (THG) reported a significant fall in annual profits during a 'transformational year' as it moves away from residential and into the commercial markets.
The firm reported a profit before tax, including discontinued operations, of £6.2m for the 12 months to September 30th, down from £11.8m the year before, mainly due to lower foodstore profits. The company explained that most of the profits from its Sunderland, Sedgefield and Skelton foodstore development projects were recognised in 2012.
THG completed the sale of nearly all its residential properties during the year, which - along with certain commercial development activities - led to a sharp reduction in its level of gearing, which fell to 28.6% from 78.2% on September 30th 2012. Net debt, meanwhile, dropped 62.9% to £17.5m from £47.2m a year earlier.
Net asset value increased by 1.7% to 28.8p by the end of the year, from 28.3p previously.
"During 2013 we have achieved significant success in delivering against our strategy, making excellent progress with our development pipeline, while at the same time positioning the group strongly for the future by reducing debt and gearing levels and disposing of almost all of our residential assets," said Chairman Robert Adair.
He said that the company expects to "shortly to recommence payment of dividends".
