In the UK and Ireland, both total and organic revenue declined 3% at constant exchange rates.

At constant exchange rates, total revenue across EMEA/Asia Pacific declined by 1 percent, while organic revenue declined by 13 percent. The difference related to the contribution from the acquisition of Compuscan and other smaller acquisitions.

The company will release results for the year ending 31 March 2020 on 20 May 2020.
