Profits on ordinary activities before taxation and goodwill amounted to £2.8m and the firm paid dividends of 3p per share, leaving Vantis with retained profits for the year of £1.8m.

The biggest expenses incurred by Vantis included staff costs and external charges amounting to £12.1m, and £4.7m respectively.

Chairman Paul Gourmand said: ‘The group has achieved results that are in line with market expectations, despite the sluggish UK economy, reflecting the quality and strength of our management team and staff.

‘Whilst continuing to selectively recruit new individuals, businesses and teams, we will pursue our integration strategy to further enhance efficiency.’
