20th anniversary of EY's Profit Warning Analysis
EY began analysing UK profit warnings in 1999. Since then, we’ve published 80 quarterly reports telling UK plc’s story through twenty years of economic flux.
To mark this anniversary, we’ve taken a deeper look into this powerful dataset. We’ve explored the trends behind two decades of UK profit warnings and undertaken a special analysis of companies that have issued ‘multiple profit warnings’ – three or more warnings within a year – looking at how their fate has changed over time.
As capital moves with increasing pace, it is more important than ever that we understand the triggers behind profit warnings and how companies can build resilience and reshape their future in this unpredictable world.
Over 6,000 profit warnings from more than 2,000 companies have provided EY with powerful insight into business, capital and economic trends. Steve Ivermee, Transaction Advisory Services Leader, EY, UK and Ireland
