InnSpired has reported a 9.3% year-on-year increase in turnover, to £73.1m for the year. Capital expenditure rose 13% during the period, with £30m being spent on 86 pubs. The company also paid out £1m in a licensee incentive scheme, including £11,000 to one publican. Observers commented that the release of InnSpired's figures by its owned, the private equity company Alchemy, could be a preliminary to an eventual float or trade sale.
