When posting figures for US firms in London, please clarify the original currency in which the figures were published as well as the exchange rates and dates used. US$172m was valued at GBP85m in Dec 2007 - this would mean Lathams had a spectacular year in London with 20+% increase in GBP revenue. What's the real story?
