- Next Fifteen expects results to be in line with market expectations, and to make further good progress in the year ahead.

"During the year the Group has continued to invest in the transition to digital marketing services," the digital communications group said.

It had made a series of acquisitions including Publitek and Pinnacle, which are specialists in digital content and marketing for advanced technologies.

"The Group also acquired Twogether, a specialist B2B digital marketing agency; HPI a market research business; and took an investment stake in Phrasee, an AI email marketing technology company," Next Fifteen said.

Since July 2016, the company has added notable additional business from General Motors, Unilever, KPMG and Deliveroo.

The company continued to benefit from the relative scale of its US business compared to its UK peers.

"Over 60% of the Groups revenues are generated in the US and we believe the Group should continue to benefit from the relative strength of the US economy and its currency."
