Market research group YouGov has hailed strong results for the first half to January 31 as adjusted pre-tax profits rose 18% to £3 million.

However it recorded a loss of £427,000 when restructuring and other costs were included. Revenues grew 9% to £32.6m for the period, a rate it said was well above the market research sector.

Chief executive Stephan Shakespeare said performance was being primarily driven by business derived from data products and services.
