Commenting on the results, CEO Angus MacSween said: “This is the twelfth consecutive year of growth since the transition of the business to cloud services in 2008 with the acquisition of our first data centres.

“As we look forward to the next stage of growth, we do so with our teams all working remotely and the world around us considerably changed due to the global impact of Covid-19.

“The switch to remote working across the world has only accelerated the move to the cloud which we believe will be a growth driver for our business over the longer term.

“Our high levels of recurring revenues, breadth of customer base, industry leading profit margins and strong cash generation, mean we are confident iomart is well positioned to withstand the current challenges and deliver long-term growth.”
