The Sunday Times Profit Track 100 league table ranks Britain’s 100 private companies with the fastest-growing profits over their latest three years. It is compiled by Fast Track and published as a supplement in The Sunday Times each April, with a national awards event in October and alumni dinners throughout the year.
The 21st annual Profit Track 100 supplement was due out on 5 April. Given the pandemic, we delayed publication in order to liaise with the featured companies.
With their support we published a special Profit Track Covid-19 edition on 26 April, sponsored by Santander and UBS. Out of the original 100 companies that qualified, 70 explicitly asked to be featured, and 30 did not want to be included.
We hope this special edition recognises the impressive past performance of all these companies, their contribution to the economy and role in paying the taxes that help fund vital public services, such as the NHS, as well as their responses to the pandemic.
The closing date for nominations for the 2021 league table is 7 February 2021, with publication on 11 April 2021.
The closing date for nominations for the 2021 league table is 7 February 2021, with publication in late April 2021.
