The company, which provides business recovery practise services, reported that group profit from continuing operations stated before amortisation and exceptional items for the period has been consistent with the performance reported in the half-year results in December 2012.

Ric Traynor, Executive Chairman of Begbies Traynor, said: "The group has continued to report good, sustainable levels of profitability whilst maintaining a sound financial position. Overall the insolvency market remains challenging, despite the impression given by a number of high profile retail administrations since Christmas."

Begbie Traynor's share price was up 7.04% to 38p at 13:41 on Thursday.
