Advisory revenue grew 11.1 per cent to £151.2m but Assurance revenue was down by 6.2 per cent to £135.5m and Tax by 4.8 per cent to £93.0m.Chief executive Scott Barnes said Grant Thornton’s profitability and cash position had created a platform for growth as the firm emerges from the difficult economic environment. Grant Thornton’s strategy is focused on acquisitions to build on its organic growth. This week it acquired litigation support consultancy Legal Inc for integration into its forensic practice.“Our overall performance has been excellent in these conditions. We acted earlier than some others and this is reflected in our 40 per cent growth in pre-tax profits for the year and, against the backdrop of the recession, we have done well to maintain our overall level of revenue,” Barnes said. “We need to increase our profitability further but this was the start I was looking for in my first full year leading the firm.” Grant Thornton reports 40pc surge in annual pre-tax profit Read This NextThe Truth About Bottled Water – Get the Facts on Drinking Bottled WaterGayotRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?
