- PHSC said its EBITDA for the nine months to Dec. 31, 2012, was £332,800, against £226,711 in the prior same period, noting it expected full-year profits and revenue to beat expectations.

Its sales income over the period was £3.8 million, from £3.2 million a year earlier.

Stephen King, CEO, said the benefits arising from the company's two acquisitions earlier in the year were beginning to come through.

"The board is encouraged by what has been achieved in the first nine months of the year," he said in a statement.

"In our last annual report I explained that we were expecting full year revenues for 2012/13 to be marginally ahead of last year, and for profits to see a small improvement. We are on track to exceed those expectations."

PHSC provides health, safety, hygiene and environmental consultancy services and security solutions to the public and private sectors.
