Future continues success with another year of record results

Future plc, the global platform for specialist media, has revealed another year of record results, delivering sustained growth.

Highlights include

  • Revenue growth of 36% to £825.4m
  • Geographically, in the US, we achieved organic revenue growth of 7% demonstrating continued momentum from the execution of our US strategy for our newer acquisitions. In the UK organic revenues declined by 1%, reflecting weighting towards magazine revenue.
