LBB Redstor has record 2016

Jan 9, 2017

2016 was a busy year for data backup and cloud services provider Redstor. One of our first wave of Little British Battlers (LBBs), Redstor acquired Attix5 in September 2015 and set about expanding internationally (see here ). In the year to November 2016, unaudited results show revenue increased by 69% to £13m (2015: £7.7m) and EBIDTA climbed to just short of £3m (compared to a 2015 operating profit of £1.2m). This record year for the SME has seen continued international growth – Redstor’s headcount is now 84, up from 65 when it first brought Attix5 on board, and turnover is ahead of the £12m predicted when the businesses came together. 85% of Redstor’s business is derived from its growing partner community around the world and an impressive 95% of the LBB’s gross profit is recurring. Redstor has also been busy with product development over the last 18 months. As part of its expansion, the LBB moved its development team into new larger offices in Cape Town, South Africa, and has spent time since acquiring Attix5 and its IP, building out its own Data Management and Security platform. Already known for its cloud data backup services, Redstor has now introduced a DR offering too and is also investing in building out its data archiving capabilities in Q1 2017. Also on the product roadmap are features to address visibility and insight into data, security and plug-ins for cloud applications such as O365. It is great to see one of our original ‘LBBs’ continuing to grow and punch above its weight even in international markets; acquiring rather than being acquired. And if all goes to plan, Redstor, which has been self-funded to date, will look to make further acquisitions to complement its organic growth over the next couple of years.
