Frosts listed in LSE’s top 1000 companies to inspire Britain
11th March 2014
Frosts is proud to have been included in the first ever list of the 'top 1000 companies to inspire Britain'.
It follows six months research by the London Stock Exchange (LSE) and recognises SME’s importance to the UK economy. Celebrating the success of SMEs is a shockingly under-reported story and more needs to be done to raise awareness of the importance of these businesses, and to nurture, support and encourage these companies, many of which are poised to be the blue chips of tomorrow. That support comes in many forms: from cutting red tape, to media promotion and providing access to appropriate finance. The LSE wants to change this view and their opinion is shared by the Daily Telegraph who are the media partner on the report.
In this report, they have not attempted to emulate other rankings of fast-growing SMEs. Instead, they have expanded the number of companies beyond the normal 100 or so to 1,000 and focused on metrics beyond short-term revenue and profit growth. The result is a list of companies that have not only performed strongly since 2009 – an exceptionally challenging period – but have also consistently outperformed their sector peers.
The 1000 Companies represent a rich and varied group of businesses from the 4.5 million SMEs in the UK. Besides Frosts, it includes some famous names such Mulberry (luxury bags), and Aardman Animations (Wallace and Gromit).
Kenneth White, Managing Director of Frosts Landscape Construction Ltd commented, "Our inclusion in the London Stock Exchange Group list of 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain is testament to our current business strategy. We remain optimistic about the future and our inclusion is an honour that the Frosts team can be proud of."
