Indigo Telecom Group was unveiled as one of the UK’s best performing privately owned technology companies by Megabuyte50.
Indigo continues to perform well with decent organic growth, margins and cash flow, doing very nicely particularly from data centre services for some well-known US tech companies. This has resulted in a maiden very strong Megabuyte Scorecard rating, and the current year should deliver more growth. Much of this can be attributed to the Belcom247 acquisition, and the company is looking for further deals to supplement the organic growth story, with the recent bank debt refinancing giving considerable firepower.
Indigo Telecom Group is based in Monmouthshire (South Wales) and designs, installs and maintains both fixed and mobile telecom networks globally for companies such as Nokia, Tata Communications and BT, and for enterprises on a project basis, whilst our managed services expertise are pan-European offering to telcos such as Vodafone, GTT and Zayo.
More recently, in December 2019 the group acquired Irish company 4site. Backed by GCP, the acquisition by Indigo Telecom Group brings international expansion and scale, as well as a professional services capability that can be rolled out in the UK. The acquisition boosts current run rate revenues by around 30%, with a target of £50m for the combined group for fiscal 2020/21. Indigo also remains on the lookout for more M&A.

The company is experiencing strong growth across the board, and particularly in the pan-European data centre services business, where Indigo works for many well-known tech companies, fitting out racking, stacking, cabling etc in their data centres. Telecoms support services are very much in demand given ongoing high network operator investment in fibre and wireless networks (4G, 5G and IoT).
