The company reported a pretax profit increase of 9.4% over last year, with revenues climbing 16% to £256.6 million for the year.

“Breaking records for three years in a row sets the bar higher and higher and so, to be realistic, I will continue to make no promises that we will continue to grow,” Rountree said in the report.
“That said, I do not see anything significant that will get in the way. We will continue to deliver our operational plan, facing any challenges head on.”
