·    Ongoing positive trading momentum resulting in expectation of Group trading for the full year to be at least in line with market expectations

With the continued growth in the Group’s lending-book in line with the Company’s stated strategy, the Board is pleased to report that H1 2022/23 has seen an increase in both revenues and profits. The growth in the lending book has particularly focussed on larger deal-sizes and on the more secured lending areas of the Company’s multi-product range, specifically the Invoice Finance division and the ‘Hard’ area of the Asset division.

Ed Rimmer, Time Finance Chief Executive Officer commented:

“Performance during the first half of the current financial year has been particularly pleasing, with the expected results for the first half now beginning to demonstrate the benefits of the Group’s own-book lending strategy and focus on core Business to Business activities introduced in June 2021.

We continue to experience growing levels of demand for finance from UK businesses, who value our multi-product range of funding solutions and the quality of our people-focussed service levels. This continued positive trading momentum gives the Board real confidence that the Group is well positioned to build value for its shareholders.”
