Commenting on the results, Chairman of Next 15, Richard Eyre said:

 

The pace of change in the marketing sector has shown no sign of slowing. Companies are increasingly focused on how consumers experience their brand through digital channels and especially mobile platforms. Next 15 remains committed to building and buying businesses that understand how to take advantage of these platforms, using technology and data to design and manage marketing programs. Our strong growth in the first half of the year is evidence of an effective strategy which we believe will continue to drive shareholder value.
