Search for the fast growers
Monday 12 January 1998
The search is on for Britain's fastest-growing privately-owned companies. For the eighth consecutive year, the Independent on Sunday is joining forces with Price Waterhouse, the leading accountancy firm, to prepare the definitive guide to owner-managed unquoted companies. Among the companies identified by The Independent 100 and since floated on the stock market are Stagecoach, the bus and train operator; JD Wetherspoon, the pubs group; Groupe Chez Gerard, the restaurants chain and Majestic Wine.
If you run an unquoted company based and incorporated in the UK and have seen rapid growth over the past five years, you could be eligible to join them. To take part, contact Julie Harwood at Price Waterhouse for an application form. The address for forms and for entries, which must be returned by Friday 27 February, is: Independent 100, Price Waterhouse, Southwark Towers, 32 London Bridge Street, London SE1 9SY.
