SysGroup PLC (‘SysGroup’), one of the UK’s fastest-growing managed IT services and cloud hosting providers, has today announced revenue is up 46 per cent to £10.5m for the year ending 31st March 2018.
The results, which demonstrate organic revenue growth of 21 per cent, follow a long list of successes for the group over the last 12 months. These include the acquisition and integration of Rockford IT Ltd, a three year £1m contract win with Home Bargains (T.J. Morris Limited), full integration of the System Professional Ltd business and significant investment in sales and marketing functions.
Having recently unveiled a corporate re-brand to unify the four brands it has acquired over the last three years, SysGroup has increased its headcount by 168 per cent in the last two years with plans in place to grow the team further across its Liverpool, London and Telford sites.
To execute on SysGroup’s newly stated growth strategy, Adam Binks was appointed as CEO in April of this year, while Mike Fletcher and Mark Quatermaine were appointed as non-executive directors. SysGroup has further announced that Martin Audcent will be appointed to the role of CFO effective from 16th July 2018. As a chartered accountant joining from NCC Group Plc, Martin brings significant senior operational finance and transaction experience to the board.
Discussing the results, Adam Binks commented:
“For the first time as CEO, I am delighted to share what has been a transformational year for SysGroup. Through excellent traction gained in the second half of the year, we have delivered on market expectations whilst continuing to grow the team, service offering and customer base.
