"We collectively have a fantastic opportunity to build a remarkable group and I'm delighted to say we have delivered another year of growth, which is testament to the contributions made by all our people across the group and the success of our growing content portfolio.

"Our group now has its most diverse range of owned IP; third-party and licensed IP targeting the broadest audiences across multiple platforms. We have made great strides over the last few years to build out our portfolios, laying strong foundations for future years."
