Lincoln, UK (PRWEB UK) 11 December 2012
The latest Duport Business Confidence Report reveals that the July - September period saw Lincoln break several economic records. Most notably, the city saw its highest ever recorded net company growth for a third quarter. More details and figures are available in the full report at http://www.duport.co.uk/lincoln.
The city also smashed its own record for new company formations during the third quarter of the year. There were 563 new companies registered during this period - more than any other Q3 on record and a 59% rise on the same period in 2011.
However, the Duport report also contains some less positive statistics for Lincoln. The number of company closures rose to 216 in the third quarter, compared to 120 during the same period last year.
Managing Director of Duport.co.uk, Peter Valaitis said:
“The figures in our latest report for Lincoln suggest growth and increasing business confidence as the local economy recovers from the worst effects of the recession.”
“More new companies will help strengthen and diversify the business base, helping the city grow and prosper in years to come.”
