Harwood Wealth Management Group
for the year ended 31 October 2018
Harwood Wealth Management Group (AIM:HW.), a leading UK based financial planning and discretionary wealth management business, is pleased to report that, following the close of its financial year ended 31 October 2018, it expects to report strong revenue growth which is broadly in line with market expectations and adjusted EBITDA* ahead of market expectations.
Consistent with the Board's strategy since IPO, this performance has been driven by both organic growth and acquisitions. During the financial year, a total of nine acquisitions were completed for an aggregate total consideration of £10.7m, (£9m net of cash acquired). Cash at the end of October 2018 was £13.6m, reflecting payments for acquisitions made in the year and deferred consideration for acquisitions made in previous periods, augmented by the cash generative nature of the business.
The Group will report its full year results on 23 January 2019.
Peter Mann, Chairman of Harwood Wealth Management Group, commented:
'I am very pleased to report on another successful year for the Group, with strong revenue growth and an EBITDA performance which is comfortably ahead of market expectations. This performance demonstrates the robustness of the business underpinned by a strong operating model and we look forward to continuing to drive growth going forward.'
*adjusted EBITDA is earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation, amortisation and exceptional costs.
