SUMMARY

This company is 115.7 years old and is currently active. It is controlled by multiple entities. The company has negative equity (net assets) of GBP -66.1 million which has worsened since the previous year's figure of GBP -50.7 million. The latest reported revenue figure is GBP 70.6 millionThe company is both loss making and has negative equity, it is therefore likely to go bankrupt unless it can raise funding or business has improved since the last accounts were filed. Retained earnings is negative (GBP -102.5 million), which means the company has aggregate losses since it's inception or it has paid more dividends than it can afford; given the company's age, this is a sign of serious financial problems. The company has 4 active officers (directors or partners) who are or were officers of 32 other companies, 4 (12.5%) of which have since been dissolved or are proposed for strike off. The company has no public disputes filed on the Business Disputes Register. There is one court case involving the company that we are aware of.
