Growth strategy and opportunities
The Directors intend to continue to grow the Company primarily by way of acquisition. The Directors believe the UK fixed line sector is ripe for consolidation; the market for supplying fixedline calls and line rental to business customers is fragmented, with over 700 fixed line resellers(most of which report turnover of less than £2 million per annum).Therefore, the Directors believe that the opportunity exists for a well-financed trade buyer such as AdEPT to act as the leading consolidator in the sector by offering an exit strategy to small operators.
The Directors additionally intend to grow the business organically through continued development of the Company’s direct sales operation and partner channel.
