The listed homeware and sports retailer Briscoe Group has made a flat first-half profit of $6.6 million, on sales of $190 million.

Excluding tax charges, the company's underlying profit rose 42% to $9.3 million.

Briscoes' managing director, Rod Duke, says he believes difficult trading conditions will persist as consumer confidence remains uncertain.
