Notes: Deborah Services: The latest accounts are for seven months trading, so turnover, profit, average wage and highest paid director figures used here are pro rata 12/7.

Speedy: The profit figure was greatly impacted by the £95.3 million exceptional written into the accounts following a review of carrying values and to account for restructuring and other exceptional costs.
