"2016 represented an overall strong financial performance despite challenging trading conditions in the traditional UK merchanting market. These results demonstrate the resilience of the Group’s spread of businesses, with strong market positions and exposure to multiple geographies. While uncertainties remain about the UK economy, the recovery in the Irish and Netherlands markets is forecast to continue. The Group’s very cash generative operations and strong balance sheet leave it well positioned to invest in areas where we see good opportunities for growth." – Gavin Slark (7 March 2017)
