K3 Capital Group's revenues rose by 34% to £7.5m in the six months to the end of November while earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation increased by 28% to £3.3m.

The group said it saw   organic growth across all three business brands in line with its strategy and an improving performance against all KPIs across business streams.

Chief executive John Rigby said: 'During the first six months of the 2018 financial year, K3 Capital has demonstrated its ability to grow across all its operating markets, and we continue to strive to win bigger and better mandates across the three business brands.

'The group had a strong first half of the year and the momentum has continued into the second half, with trading remaining comfortably in line with management's expectations. 

'KPIs across the entire business continue to track positively and a number of significant transactions remain in the pipeline for the full year and beyond. Whilst the completion and timing of the transactions is not guaranteed, a number are expected to fall into this financial year.

'December saw a record ever festive period in non-contingent fee income, coupled with more than 20 deal completions across the Group, this delivered an EBITDA in excess of £1m for the month. 

'Our highly targeted approach to marketing has ensured that we continue to see increased numbers of buyers and sellers, particularly from the private equity industry, overseas investors and UK trade buyers. 

'We have secured a 57% rise in the number of offers for businesses for sale over the past six months, and continue to attract an increasing volume of buyers for our clients' opportunities.

'The positive momentum in the business continues to gain pace and the improved performance across all KPIs, coupled with the robust deal pipelines that exist across all three trading brands, lead us to a confident outlook for both the full year FY2018 and beyond.'
