Commenting on the Interim Results, Tanya Raynes, Time Finance Non-Executive Chair, said:

“These Interims demonstrate the successful implementation of our stated strategy of being an own-book lender focussed on our three core Business to Business activities. Significant growth in the period has been achieved whilst maintaining our margin, controlling credit and spreading risk as UK businesses continue to value our focus on customer service and our multi-product funding solutions. The Board is committed to further increasing shareholder value through the stated strategy and, despite the current wider macro-economic headwinds, looks forward to the second half of the financial year with cautious optimism.”
