Steve Ingham, CEO:
“We are delighted with our performance in 2011, with improved profits being generated from a broad and diverse set of geographies and business streams. The strength of our results reflects our ability to launch organically and grow businesses around the world, whilst maintaining a strong balance sheet. This ensures we are consistent in our strategy of always maintaining our business platform during economic downturns and retaining our most experienced and talented people.”

“As the second half of last year progressed, trading became more challenging as general business confidence fell. All regions in which we operate were impacted, with growth rates slowing, but remaining positive. In the first two months of 2012, with the exception of financial services, we have seen no significant further slowing, and in a number of geographies activity levels have remained strong, increasing Group gross profits by approximately 10%.”
