Sector revenue growth in July 2015 is down slightly month on month from 21% in June to 14% in July when compared to the same months in 2014. The month on month performance is very dependent on area – urban firms are up and rural firms are down since June.
The 2014 Index confirms that Quarter 3 accounted for the highest percentage of members’ revenue in 2014. September and October were the highest grossing months last year. Quarter 3 was consistently the highest grossing period for members – particularly for branches with less than 10 employees.
The Index presentation of overall monthly revenues confirms that September and October were the months where revenue most exceeded the 2014 monthly average. December, January and February were the weakest months in 2014 for revenue. The top grossing revenue months in 2014 exhibit greater variation when reviewed by size of branch/no. employees.
