Our Strategy

Our strategy is divided into three main pillars: (i) to drive revenue growth by pursing an innovation strategy and international opportunities, while fostering strong and established customer relationships in the United Kingdom; (ii) to improve the Group’s organisational efficiency and lower its cost base; and (iii) to maintain strong cash flow generation. The aim of this strategy is to deleverage the business and the Group is targeting a Net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio below 3.0x.
