LEGOLAND OWNER BUILDS REVENUES HIGHER

LEGOLAND owner Merlin Entertainments said yesterday that it could float in 2014, after a £2bn IPO fell through in early 2010. The group, which also owns Madame Tussauds, the London Eye and Thorpe Park, grew revenues 15.9 per cent to £928.4m as visitors increased to 46.4m. Merlin said the opening of the Legoland Windsor Hotel will boost results in the coming year.
