The Group has delivered another strong set of results, against a difficult macro-economic environment, namely Covid-19,” said B.P. Marsh chairman Brian Marsh.

“The Group continues to demonstrate the effectiveness of its investment criteria, and following a number of successful disposals, will be looking for more high-quality investment opportunities to bolster an already high performing portfolio.”

The company warned investors about inflationary headwinds, but reportedly remained confident it could accomplish growth in the coming year ahead.

“There remain headwinds for all businesses, particularly the conflict in Ukraine and the inflationary environment, but I remain confident that working closely with our portfolio companies we can continue our growth trajectory and deliver for our investors.”

B.P. Marsh proposed a dividend of 2.7p per share, which is scheduled for payment in July 2022, representing a 14% raise from its dividend of 2.4p year-on-year.
