Look under 2002 and the row for "net profits".

In Ms Sue's link, the summary annual report shows a net profit of 893 millions, with notes 1 and 5 indicating the inclusion of 700 million after tax operating charge and 98.6 million after tax charge to reflect intangible assets.
That brings the total to 1692 millions which corresponds to the Valueline figure.
Exactly which number to adopt will depend on accounting practices and the context of the question.

Thanks, MathMate. I didn't know how to explain the discrepancies in numbers.
