Callcredit Continues Positive Growth Momentum

LEEDS, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/14 -- Today, 17th June 2014, Callcredit Information Group continued to demonstrate the strength of its business, in what continues to be unsettled market conditions, by releasing its annual results for 2013.

Highlights of Callcredit Information Group's financial results issued today:


--  Profits from operations increased by 57%
--  Revenues increased by over 10%

Callcredit Information Group continued with a positive momentum for growth in 2013, with profits from operations increasing by 57% on the previous year to show full year profits before tax of GBP 27.3 million. The Group continued to expand its workforce and now has in excess of 1,000 employees across office sites in the UK and overseas.

The results are testament that Callcredit continued growing and investing in its future. In February 2013 the business acquired Lifestyles Online regarded as the market leaders in on-line lead generation, their unique propositions and reputation further complementing and strengthening Callcredit's already comprehensive prospect database Define. In October the retail location planning consultancy, GMAP, further strengthened its presence in the international market by establishing an office in Shanghai, China.

John McAndrew, CEO of Callcredit Information Group said, "Last year's results further reinforce that year on year we continue to deliver strong performance across the Group.

It's especially pleasing given these results were delivered at a time when many of our people were also involved in the detailed process of looking for new investors and the subsequent acquisition of Coactiva public sector specialists."

John McAndrew concluded, "2013 was another very good year but I see the next five years as a very exciting time for us as a business and for our people under the ownership of GTCR our new investors, as we continue to grow and flourish, both at home and abroad."
