April 5, 2012: Real Business publishes the Investec Hot 100 list of the UK's fastest growing private companies.
We'll be publishing the Investec Hot 100 at the beginning of April – our list of Britain's super-charged firms.
To compile the list, we use accounts filed at Companies House up to January 10, 2012. The Hot 100 is based on compound annual growth rates measured over a four-year period. To qualify, the latest accounts need to show sales of more than £10m and EBITDA of more than £1m. This is a real snapshot of Britain's "Mittelstand".
Who will be crowned Britain's fastest growing company this year? Stay tuned.
