We have invested heavily in growth drivers to counter difficult market conditions; as a result we have enjoyed improving year on year growth rates in the last eight quarters (excluding the benefit from our Scandinavian acquisition) as our strategy of focusing on Key Accounts, Insites™, Vending, and cross-selling initiatives continues to deliver results. Our continental European businesses have performed well, whilst the performance of our UK business has been disappointing, as previously indicated almost entirely due to a small number of large national and European Key Accounts reducing their spend reflecting challenging conditions in their end markets. We expect that our investment in growth drivers will enable us to continue to gain market share and provide good revenue and profit growth in the years to come.”

Ian Fraser, Chief Executive Officer, Brammer plc. 17 February 2015
