Difficult year for Next Fifteen

Next Fifteen, the communications group that owns five PR brands, saw a five per cent rise in revenue to £96.1m for the year ending 31 July, but saw a 66 per cent drop in its adjusted profits to £2.1m. Chairman Richard Eyre said it had been a tough year. “It remains a year of progress in many ways. Record revenues and the steady transition of the business will underpin the future growth of the company,” he said.
