YouGov's trading for the year ended 31 July 2014 is in line with the Board's expectations.  The Company continues to make good progress in accordance with its stated strategy, with the proportion of revenue derived from data products and services increasing as planned. Its revenue growth once again outperformed the overall market research sector.

The Company's balance sheet remains strong with net cash at 31 July 2014 of approximately £7 million.

YouGov is also pleased to announce the appointment of Sundip Chahal to the new role of Group Chief Operating Officer. In this role, Sundip will be responsible for the continued scaling of the business globally, ensuring consistency of  business processes and client service delivery across the Group, as well as for overseeing the performance of the Group's geographic units.

Sundip Chahal has been CEO of YouGov's Middle East and North Africa region since 2010 and has also overseen development of the Asia Pacific business, since its acquisition in January 2014. He joined YouGov's UK Data Products and Services business in 2005, becoming its Managing Director in 2007. Sundip previously worked for Ipsos and Research International in the UK.
