Financial highlights

2022 Revenue
2022 Adjusted PBT

From the businesses

Comment from our Managing Directors on their company’s contribution to our results.

““I am pleased with our FY2022 performance in Records Management, especially our strong organic revenue growth which was driven through customer box wins and new project activities. We secured two major new contracts for the Department of Work and Pensions and BBC, both provide an excellent platform for further growth in 2023. We continue our focus on providing added value to our customers, delivering operational efficiencies and high levels of customer satisfaction.””
Nigel Dews
Managing Director, Restore Records Management
““Restore Digital in 2022 further consolidated its leading market position through strong organic growth and the integration of EDM Group (acquired in 2021). The continuing shift in our product mix to digital mailrooms, cloud-based document management systems and transformative workflows, has facilitated the expected increase in overall margin. We are increasingly well regarded for highly complex and confidential change programmes that underpin our customers’ digital transformation objectives.””
Mark Horrocks
Managing Director, Restore Digital
” “2022 continued to see Technology deliver against its strategy. We achieved both organic and acquisitive growth in what was a dynamic marketplace. We maintained our market position as number one in size and scale. The team’s continued focus on transformation is now delivering improved customer insight and operational efficiencies. FY 2023 is a key year in how we transform. It will deliver a much deeper integration of the business we have acquired over the past few years. A new customer facing on-line contract system will raise the level of engagement and improve the automation on the sales front. We will be deploying a single operating platform across all sites (rather than hosting multiple instances on each site). This will move us from a consortium of regional businesses, delivering national services to a national business delivering regional services. We will be deploying a single finance platform across the business, aligned to the group strategy using Business Dynamics. Once the transformation is complete, the Technology business will be able to accelerate the market advantage it has with scale and national reach. A very exciting 2023.” ”
Duncan Gooding
Managing Director, Restore Technology
““2022 proved to be a robust year for Datashred. Year on year we continued to see the return of pre covid activity levels across our customer base. We maintained the number one spot in digital marketing, resulting in a large number of ad-hoc service requests, which in turn provides us with further service related revenue streams. The teams focus on transformation delivered an improved customer experience at a lower cost to service. We maintained our reputation as the market leader for service excellence as seen with our “Excellence” status on TrustPilot. As part of the Restore Group, Datashred continued to on-board the largest number of net new clients for the Group. This focus creates a wider opportunity and provides an increasing number of cross business unit services into our combined customers. Datashred is in an excellent position to continue to grow, both organically and via acquisitions as we continue to deliver our 5 year strategy.””
Duncan Gooding
Managing Director, Restore Datashred
“”2022 was a strong year in terms of organic growth for Harrow Green with a 8% increase on 2021 – supporting our customers with workplace management as they progress with new ways of working. We have secured some big wins with the BBC and University of Arts and have increased our storage capacity across our nine UK locations. We are seeing continued growth across our Laboratory Services and Heritage divisions – which has seen us win some very prestigious projects in these sectors. Improving our customer journey has been a huge focus for our teams as we continue on our digital transformation programme. This work has seen our Trustpilot and NPS scores increase throughout the year as we provide more services, efficiency and added value to our customers.””
Tim Ryder
Managing Director, Restore Harrow Green

Restore continued to achieve growth demonstrating the strength of the business and resilience of the markets we operate in.

I am pleased to report a further year of revenue growth, up 19.1% leading to another year of strong profit delivery. Business activity increased during the year and despite the economic and political challenges, the business has shown excellent organic revenue growth of 11% with acquisition related growth of 8%.

After ending 2021 strongly the business continued to see expansion with activity levels rising across the Group despite the economic and political uncertainty. The growth we achieved, therefore demonstrates the resilience of our end markets, the execution of the whole team to deliver essential services to customers and the ability to win against the competition with our scale and excellent customer satisfaction.

Sharedealing security

Over the past few years, many companies have become aware that their shareholders or potential shareholders have received unsolicited phone calls or correspondence concerning investment matters. These are typically from overseas-based ‘brokers’ who target UK shareholders, offering to sell them what often turn out to be worthless or high-risk shares in UK investments. These operations are commonly known as ‘boiler rooms’ and the ‘brokers’ can be very persistent and persuasive.

When it comes to financial services, the scam activity is more nuanced and often appears after the initial shock of a major event such as Coronavirus. Scammers are sophisticated, opportunistic and tend to target people who are more vulnerable or susceptible to being scammed, particularly in the current climate with many more people being at home. Using the uncertainty around stock markets, scammers may advise you to invest or transfer existing investments into high return (and high risk) investments.

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) gives the following advice:

Protect yourself
If you are offered unsolicited investment advice, discounted shares, a premium price for shares you own, or free company or research reports, you should take these steps before handing over any money:

Only deal with financial services firms that are authorised by the FCA and check the Financial Services Register on and Warning list on to check who you are dealing with.

Always check the firm is not a clone firm by asking for a firm reference number (FRN) and contact details and then calling back on the switchboard number on the FCA register – do not use links in emails or website from the firm offering you an investment.

Treat all unexpected calls, emails and text messages with caution even if the person seems to know some basic information about you.

Avoid being rushed or pressured into making a decision by seriously considering seeking financial advice or guidance before investing. Remember if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

Contact the FCA Consumer Helpline on 0800 111 6768 if there are no contact details on the Register or you are told they are out of date.

If you use an unauthorised firm to buy or sell shares or other investments, you will not have access to the Financial Ombudsman Service or Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) if things go wrong.

Report a scam
If you are approached about a share scam you should tell the FCA using the following ways:

Call the FCA on
Freephone: 0800 111 6768
From the United Kingdom: 0300 500 8082
From abroad: +44 20 7066 1000
