Expose firm: note result (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

outcome

Here is my best explanation:

'result' is the definition.

('outcome' can be a synonym of 'result')

'expose firm note' is the subsidiary indication.

'expose' becomes 'out' (outing is a kind of exposing).

'firm' becomes 'co'.

'note' becomes 'me'.

'out'+'co'+'me'='outcome'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for outcome that I've seen before include "Eventuality", "End result", "'Result, upshot (7)'", "Consequence, effect", "Upshot, result", "Denouement", "consequences", "answer", "Consequence, result" and "Consequence, upshot".)
