Summer buying spree boosts WYG profits


ACQUISITIONS boosted results reported by consultant White Young Green this week.

The consultant saw turnover increase from £76.6M to £89.9M in the year to 30 June. Pretax profits were up from £5.7M to £6.9M.

The firm has bought five small consultants during the second half of the financial year. These include Nottingham based IMC Consulting which specialises in large scale economic and social regeneration projects in the developing world.

White Young Green said it planned to expand further abroad following the IMC acquisition.

The other firms were structures consultant CETEC, Irish project manager and cost consultant Denis Rooney Associates, urban planning firm Hawthorne Kamm and mechanical and electrical firm DWP.

Most of the consultant's areas of activity saw double digit growth last year.

Defence activity fell by 30% because the Ministry of Defence had spent the last 12 months setting up its five regional prime contracts.
