Turnover: £180k

Status: SOLD

Business overview

–      Outstanding opportunity to acquire a successful IT support consultancy, with a niche service offering and loyal client base, based in London.

–      The business has delivered steady revenue over the past 4 years and continues to do so despite the current economic climate.

–      Established in 1999, the business has developed an extremely loyal client base which is evenly spread with no one client representing more than 12% of the revenue.

–      Over 90% of current business is from the existing client base, which includes media and advertising clients as well as property, travel and interior design sector clients

–      Over 40% of the revenue is generated from clients who make regular monthly payments under contract

–      The business has a well defined brand and unique service offering in what is a crowded market sector
