06 December 2018
Anexo Group plc (AIM: ANX), the specialist integrated credit hire and legal services provider, today provides the following trading update in respect of the year ending 31 December 2018 (‘FY-2018’).
The Board is pleased to announce that following its IPO the Group has continued to trade strongly and, as a result, anticipates that profit before tax for FY-2018 will be ahead of current market expectations. The Board is confident for the outlook for FY-2019 but at this stage is not looking to upgrade current FY-2019 forecasts.
Further to the announcement issued on 5 September 2018, the Group is also pleased to report that the new regional office for Bond Turner, the Group’s legal services division, became operational on 3 December 2018. Located in Bolton, the 9,745 sq.ft. office now houses a 25-strong team comprising six Grade A solicitors (8 years’ or more post qualification experience), other solicitors, FILEX’s and litigation specialists. This office will also accommodate a new team of specialist credit hire litigators, who have a wealth of experience in the industry, and will be led by a highly experienced senior management team. Recruitment for the Bolton office remains ongoing and Bond Turner is seeing high levels of interest in each position advertised.
Alan Sellers, Executive Chairman of Anexo, said: “We are delighted to be able to update the market today on the strong progress that the Group has made since our successful flotation in June. Importantly, the expansion of Bond Turner and the new regional office will allow us to not only process our existing cases at a faster rate but also to take on more cases, which we believe will have a positive financial impact for the Group going forward.
We look forward to updating the market further when we issue our full year pre-close trading update in late January 2019.”
