C2 reports leap in sales

County Mortgage Group, the company which owns c2-financial and c2 secured, has today revealed a huge leap in turnover for the year ending September 2005 of just over 46%.

The company’s turnover now stands at just over 6m and this news comes on top of its recent announcement that profits trebled during its financial year to September 2004, to just over 300,000.

Although not yet in a position to publish any profit figures for the current year, the company is confident that there will be a three-figure increase in profits.

David Wylie, managing director at c2, says: “We are now reaping the benefits of a sustained period of investment in our brand and operations, and this growth in turnover is proof that our proposition to the market place is very attractive to our customers.

“We are particularly excited by this growth in turnover because we have been so successful in driving down costs over the past two years – that is why we are expecting to see a very significant surge in profits when our accounts are ready for publication.”
