- Begbies Traynor said it expected performance to top market expectations as it performed strongly in the final quarter of the year, due to a number of successful fee realisations combined with continuing strong performance from its operating divisions.

'We now expect our revenue and profit for the financial year as a whole to be comfortably ahead of market expectations, the company said.

Cash collection in the period was significantly ahead of our expectations, which had resulted in a year end net debt position of £6m, the company added.

'We have had a successful end to our financial year with our results anticipated to be comfortably ahead of market expectations. We enter the new financial year with a strong order book and favourable market conditions, and are well placed to continue our track record of earnings growth,' said Ric Traynor, Executive Chairman of Begbies Traynor Group.
