John Wisbey, Chief Executive Officer, Lombard Risk says: “This year was a record year both for revenue and profit with 31% headline growth in revenues to £16.8m and a rise of 77% in EBITDA to £ 5.3m. This growth was achieved despite the European Banking Authority delaying new regulatory reporting requirements in our key EMEA market, which deferred some revenues into the next period.”
Wisbey continued: “We enter the new financial year with our highest level of recurring revenues ever, our highest contractual backlog to date, a healthy sales pipeline and a sound cash position. As a result, the Board views the future with optimism.”
Philip Crawford, Chairman, Lombard Risk says: “As the Group’s results have indicated, turnover growth has proved to be more than resilient to economic challenges and we remain optimistic for the future.”
