"The business grew tremendously in the two years following the MBO. As well as the acquisition of Belcom247, the group grew organically at an exceptional rate, expanded into new state-of-the-art facilities and doubled headcount. It's been an exciting period and we have welcomed the support and financial backing of YFM through to the exit."

Stephen Thompson, CEO of Indigo Telecom Group
