Jack Morton has reported a profit before tax of £3.53m for the year ending December 2014 - up 54% on the previous year's figure of £2.29m.

Turnover was measured at £78.9m, up 60% from 2013, and operating profit had also increased to £3.46m.

The company said that its profit after tax for the year - £3.28m – was in line with expectations.

The board of directors noted in a statement: "2014 was another solid year of performance with the company benefiting from its 2013 reassessment and refocus on its revenue growth strategies resulting in gaining new clients, particularly in diversified portfolio areas such as promotional marketing, sponsorship activation and digital social and mobile marketing."

However it added: "The external commercial environment in 2015 is expected to remain challenging and without the stimulus of the Commonwealth Games it will be difficult to maintain the 2014 level of performance, but the directors are seeking growth opportunities wherever possible and have built a strong client base."
