Alamy have just released their accounts for the year ending 31 December 2013. It shows some interesting results, including the effect of reducing contributor commissions, headcount increase and dividends paid. The full accounts can be downloaded from Companies House for £4.99 I think but you can get the summary free from DueDil.

The Directors are rewarding themselves well, nothing wrong with that, it is their company and they deserve payback for their hard work just like we do. Turnover is down but profits are up significantly. Don't forget that Alamy gives a lot of money to Charity also.

 

All this information is in the public domain so I assume there is no problem discussing it ....

Or it is salable, in which case ...
