Would De La Rue benefit from Greek exit?

Rumours of a Greek exit from the euro have helped send the share price of money printing firm De La Rue up in the past few months.

The company is benefiting from rumours it could be getting ready to print drachma.

Hampshire-based De La Rue has also updated the City on its full-year results.

They were less than impressive, down to £33m from nearly £74m a year earlier.

George Godber, from Matterly Asset Management, told the BBC that De La Rue has also benefited from the Arab Spring.
