Financials News UK

UK — Market research company BDRC Group has reported turnover up 17.8% to £24.5m and gross profits up 19.4% for the financial year to end of September 2014.

In the UK BDRC Group includes BDRC Continental, retail specialist ESA Retail and the operations businesses Perspective Research Services, Viewpoint and Alligator Research. 

Qualitative recruitment and studio business Viewpoint joined the Group during the year, making a nine month contribution to the figures.  However, start-up digital agency Alligator only launched in the final quarter so its figures have yet to be included in the Group total.

Dr Cris Tarrant (pictured), CEO of the BDRC Group, said: “With more than 170 staff and a major in-house operations capability we are increasingly being considered for the largest commissions, both in the UK and internationally.”
