Lark is proud to have been recognised by the London Stock Exchange as one of the ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’.
The report has been acknowledged widely and was commented on by Theresa May, UK Prime Minister:
“Britain’s small and medium-sized businesses are the cornerstone of our economy. From dynamic start-ups to established family firms, they showcase the UK as an entrepreneurial and versatile place to do business…
“So I welcome London Stock Exchange Group’s focus in this publication on the UK’s most dynamic and fastest growing businesses, and I want to congratulate all of the 1000 high growth and innovative companies across the UK featured in this year’s report.”
Lark's Managing Director, Stephen Lark, had this to say on this welcome recognition, “It is great to have been recognised alongside so many other fantastic brands. This recognition is just another example of how the continued hard work of our dedicated staff is helping Lark to stand out from our peers.”
How it works
The London Stock Exchange worked with a research company to identify 1000 companies (broken down by SIC code) who had significantly outperformed their industry peers’ compound annual growth rate (based on turnover growth) over the last four years.
To be eligible, companies had to meet certain criteria:
be UK-registered and active,
have revenues between £6 million and £250 million,
and have a minimum of three years in operation.
Xavier Rolet, Chief Executive of the London Stock Exchange Group, highlighted how the report is a showcase of some of Britain’s best SMEs, “…LSEG’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ report continues to highlight the dynamic, entrepreneurial and ambitious businesses across the country that are boosting UK productivity, driving economic growth and creating jobs.
“The strength and diversity of these companies is readily apparent with a broad mix of UK regions and sectors represented.
“These companies are the very heart of an ‘anti-fragile’ economy: more robust; more flexible and less prone to boom and bust. We must ensure we continue doing all we can to support high growth potential businesses like these.”
