Tony Fernandes: QPR chairman reports on latest financial results

These figures do not take into account the last two transfer windows and wages are likely to have soared further following the arrivals of the likes of Park Ji-sung, Julio Cesar and Jose Bosingwa in the summer followed by the January signings of Christopher Samba and Loic Remy.

The published wage increase was offset by turnover rising from £34.6m to £74m, but QPR chairman Tony Fernandes admitted in his directors' report that the board are "conscious of the need for expenditure to be closely monitored and controlled".

"A critical driver of any club's value is its presence in the Premier League and the club achieved its key objective for the 2011-12 season, by successfully securing its Premier League status for the coming season," said Fernandes, whose side are currently bottom of the Premier League with just 10 matches remaining this term.

"The financial results reflect the club's focus on on-pitch success.

"There are a number of potential risks and uncertainties that could have a material impact on the group's long-term performance. These risks and uncertainties are monitored by the board on a regular basis."

Fernandes, Kamarudin Bin Meranun and Ruben Emir Gnanalingam own 66 per cent of QPR, while the other 33 per cent belongs to the Mittal family.

Lakshmi Mittal is listed as the 41st richest person in the world by Forbes magazine, with a net worth of £11billion.
