Crisis, what crisis?

United Business Media has just reported pretty decent results for 2008 with continuing revenues up 10.7% and earnings per share up 6.7%. Of course, we won't be ungenerous and mention that you get a lot more pounds for your dollars from your US and Asian businesses these days.

However....

The point we did want to make was that the Asian results in particular are very impressive. Revenues up 13% year-on-year and profits up 23.8%. That will, of course, make the hurdles the boys at CMP Asia have been set even higher to jump over this year. Good luck guys!

Impressive profit margin for CMP Asia indeed. Did you smell any renaming/rebranding for CMP Asia from the presentation?

No...mind you, I didn't read it all that carefully yet!
