Thursday, 26 May 2016
Cabot Credit Management (CCM), a market leader in European credit management services, today announced the financial results for the period ending 31 March 2016. 

“During this first quarter we have continued to expand our European business by acquiring a credit management business, Nemo, in France,” said Ken Stannard, Chief Executive Officer. “We are already building on the success of last year and have achieved further strong returns and profitable growth. Our adjusted EBITDA of £56.9 million is up 27% from last year.”

“Our portfolio purchases have started strong with £68.3m this quarter, three times more than in Q1 2015, with 82% of this capital deployed outside the UK market.

“We are the first major debt purchaser to achieve our UK FCA authorisation and look forward to leveraging this in the market place this year. We are continuing to keep our customers at the heart of our business which was recognised at our industry awards recently where we won the Treating Customers Fairly award for the second year running.”
