Experian's third quarter trading statement showed continued strong growth for the business.
Revenue both on an actual basis and at constant exchange rates was up 12% in the three months to December 2010, with organic growth at 8%. All parts of the group grew revenues although the growth was modest in the UK and Ireland.
Expectations for the year were unchanged after the trading statement. Organic revenue growth is expected to be similar to the 7% reported for the first half, while operating margin should show a "modest" improvement.
