Jack Morton's turnover drops by £26m to 'expected levels'

Agency Jack Morton Worldwide has reported a decrease in turnover to £52.2m for the 2015 financial year, falling from £78.9m in 2014.

The £26m drop from £78.9m was attributed to the fact that 2014 saw a series of one-off events, including the ceremonies for the Commonwealth Games. According to the director’s report filed at Companies House, this year the figure was more in line with expectations.

While turnover decreased to 'more normal levels', the company also recorded a drop in pre-tax profit, from £3.5m in 2014 to £1.7m in 2015.

The majority of this year’s revenue was taken from brand consultancy, design and creation, events, conferences, roadshows and exhibitions. During the course of the year, the focus was on growing revenue and client base, which was successfully achieved.
