Bob Falconer, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “I am pleased with the performance of the business in the first half. We have continued to successfully grow revenue and margin across our core products and markets, with a particularly strong performance in enterprise and a growing capability in the public sector, leading to contracts with organisations such as itsu, Savills plc and Macmillan Cancer Support. Our SIP and Cloud PBX services continue to perform well and we are now seeing accelerated growth in data services following the investments we have made in our network; important in a market where customers are increasingly looking to buy all their communications services from one supplier. Other initiatives, such as Gamma Accelerate, a marketing and lead generation platform, are helping the channel, which is our primary route to market, to increase sales. Significant resources also continue to be placed on enhancing our current products whilst developing exciting new capabilities, in particular maximising the opportunities from our growing Full MVNO mobile service.”
