  • Company turnover to October 2014 was c. £470k of which £195k (41%) was contracted recurring revenue for support/services. Support contracts are annual contracts with 30 days’ notice.
  • The client base includes a wide range of business types and no single client accounts for more than 10% of total company turnover.
  • The majority of customers are in London and the Northern home counties and the scale of customers ranges from very small with 1-5 end users to up to over 100 end users with the upper quartile typically having over 20 users.
  • In recent years the Vendors have rationalised the business into a solid core of support contracts and have created a platform for the business which is completely transferrable.
  • Apart from the two directors the business employs two engineers to run the day to day support activities.
  • This business would be of particular interest to other IT support companies that are looking for a series of ‘bolt-on’ contracts that can be transferred onto their own infrastructure to create an additional revenue stream and recognise significant synergy cost savings.
