Proudfoot has contributed £81m in revenues, a 19% growth on 2003, while Parson’s revenues have grown 85% to £37.8m.

MCG’s operating profit is expected to ‘moderately’ exceed market expectations.

‘I am very pleased with the revenue for 2004 particularly in the light of the weakness of the dollar,’ said MCG chief executive Kevin Parry. ‘In particular, the trading and momentum in Parson Consulting in the second half of the year have confirmed its turnaround.’
