The British publisher this week posted its FY ‘07 results (ending June 20th) which showed sales up 38 per cent to £71.5m and profit up five-fold from £1.1m to £5.6m. But Cousens is adamant that FY ‘08 will put even this performance in the shade.
“We’ll exceed that level of growth, definitely. We’re the fastest growing publisher in what many people view as the fastest growing entertainment sector,” he told MCV.
Cousens added that a public flotation is scheduled for calendar ‘08, while a trade sale remains an alternative.
