CEO Comment

“2016 has been another encouraging year of further strategic progress and momentum, with the Group delivering margin accretion, cash conversion and leverage reduction all in line with market expectations.

“At its heart, our strategy is simple. We drive growth by providing technology-based services to large UK companies. Demand for our technology and compliance-led services remains robust as the majority of our products and services are non-discretionary. This means that irrespective of the current levels of economic uncertainty, our clients will continue to buy services from us.

“Our target remains to deliver sustainable earnings growth supplemented by growth from acquisitions each year. The dependability of our revenues, our efficiency programme and progressive deleveraging, will enable us to grow profits and earnings ahead of revenue.

“We continue to make progress against the strategy with many opportunities for future growth.”

Guy Wakeley, Chief Executive
