Next 15 Communications Group enjoyed robust organic growth during the second half of fiscal 2018, according to its trading update released today.

Chairman Richard Eyre said Next 15 topped the industry's organic growth average due to its focus on data and technology to reinforce the company's creative firepower.

"With the geopolitical landscape remaining in flux, clients are looking for greater certainty from their marketing programs which our agencies and data businesses are proving able to provide,” said Eyre in a statement.

Next 15 supplemented its organic growth with the acquisition of Activate, digitally-driven demand generation consultant, and Planning-Inc., designer and builder of data platforms for marketers.

The company will release its full-year financials in early April.

Next15, which is merging its Text100 and Bite brands, also owns M Booth, The Outcast Agency and TheBlueShirtGroup.
