The acquisition of MoneySavingsExpert.com, which was completed on September 21st last year, contributed approximately £1.8m of revenues from providers other than Moneysupermarket.com and £2.8m of adjusted EBITDA to the group in 2012.

Trading in the fourth quarter of the year was described as "satisfactory", with group revenues approximately 18% ahead of the same period last year.

Excluding MoneySavingsExpert.com, group revenues were around 14% ahead of the same period last year with lower demand for comparison of savings products in the Money vertical offset by improved trading in Insurance, Home Services and Travel.

The group explained that revenue in savings had been hit by lower competition among banks for retail deposits, many of which sought low cost funding from the Bank of England's Funding for Lending scheme rather than from retail deposits.

As of December 31st, the group had cash balances of £17.7m and no debt.
