Clients trading with Argentex increased by 27% to 1,241 from 981 a year earlier, with the group saying it continued to benefit from a highly diversified and quality client list.
“We are pleased with how Argentex has maintained its strong momentum into the new fiscal year, building on the positive trends reported towards the end of FY 2021,” said Harry Adams, the chief executive officer of Argentex.
“Our track record of prudent risk management continues to be a key differentiator, reflected in our focus on revenue quality and continued low levels of bad debt. This is a key factor contributing to the positive performance delivered over the last six months and the strength of our business model. Supported by increased sales capacity in new, larger headquarters and ongoing investment in our technology, we are well placed to capitalise on the significant opportunities ahead,” he added.
