Argus rises in leading UK business league table


Global energy and commodity information provider Argus rose in the ranks for a third successive year in the annual Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 league table, which lists the UK’s most profitable companies.

The league table, published in The Sunday Times today, ranks the UK’s private-sector mid-market growth companies with the biggest sales. Argus ranks 171st for revenue this year, compared with 196thlast year and 227th in 2016 when it first appeared in the rankings. In terms of profitability — measuring profit as a percentage of sales — Argus is in 13th place.

In order to be considered for the league table, a company’s sales or profits must be growing at a minimum of 5pc/yr. Argus’ sales for the 2016-17 financial year increased by 20pc from a year earlier to £169.8mn, 90pc of which came from outside the UK.

Argus Media Group chairman and chief executive Adrian Binks said: “In the last financial year, we have extended our international reach, expanded our range of products and worked with industry participants to ensure that our price assessments, conferences and consulting services more than meet their ever-changing needs. This has yet again been reflected in our financial performance.”

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
