Thursday, 28 May 2015

Cabot Credit Management (CCM), a market leading acquirer and manager of consumer debt, today announced the financial results for the three months ending 31 March 2015.

“A strong start to 2015, with adjusted EBITDA up by 42% from £31.5 million in Q1 2014 to £44.7 million,“ said Ken Stannard, Chief Executive Officer. “The fact that we have achieved this strong level of financial performance, at the same time as winning the Credit Today Treating Customers Fairly award, demonstrates that our approach of keeping the customer at the heart of what we do is mutually beneficial.

"We are now into the final stages of the integration of the Cabot and Marlin businesses, with owned customer accounts in the process of being migrated to a common collections platform.

"We submitted our FCA application in Q1 and have had a positive dialogue with the FCA post application."
