Office2office acquires a £20m business for £700,000
The administrators Allan Graham and David Standish of KPMG confirmed the sale of the BPO division this week for the sum of £700,000.
O2O is to acquire the following assets from the sale according to its website: "two leasehold properties, certain employees of the BPO business and a wide range of customer relationships and contracts recently generating £20m per year of turnover."
Simon Moate, chief executive of O2O, is eager to merge the bought business with its own BPO operations, and sees the move as a "hugely positive step toward our goal of becoming a true leading player within the BPO sector."
He added: "This acquisition is an important development, broadening our customer base and increasing our market coverage in the sector."
O2O's own BPO operations originated from its £26m acquisition of AccessPlus in 2008.
It had been recently reported that The Print Factory had faced a winding up petition by HM Revenue and Customs over a multi-million pound debt.
Total current liabilities of £19.4m were entered in its last recorded accounts for the year to 30 June 2008 and revenues of over £65m.
