The company has been recognised in the fourth edition of London Stock Exchange Group’s 2017 report.
To be included in the list, companies needed to show consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming their industry peers.
Barry Hughes, managing director of Golden Bear commented: “We are absolutely delighted to have been recognised within the 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain for 2017. The company has a fantastic team whose hard work and commitment continues to drive the business forward. We are extremely proud of our licensed portfolio as well as our own IPs – it is an exciting time for the company as we explore new innovative avenues alongside continuing to develop our existing brand collection.”
Xavier Rolet, Chief Executive, London Stock Exchange Group said: “Four years on, LSEG’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ report continues to highlight the dynamic, entrepreneurial and ambitious businesses across the country that are boosting UK productivity, driving economic growth and creating jobs. The strength and diversity of these companies is readily apparent with a broad mix of UK regions and sectors represented. These companies are the very heart of an ‘anti-fragile’ economy: more robust; more flexible and less prone to boom and bust. We must ensure we continue doing all we can to support high growth potential businesses like these.
“London Stock Exchange Group is fully committed to supporting and implementing initiatives which improve access to and cut the cost of finance for growing companies. We welcome the Government’s focus on supporting SMEs as part of its Industrial Strategy and await the outcome of its review into long-term patient capital.”
