VAR ANS Group continues to grow like stink, with its turnover and gross profits – as well as its operating costs – all roughly doubling in its fiscal first half of 2012.
The Cisco, VMware and NetApp partner, which acquired storage reseller Alpha 15 months ago, saw turnover swell from £8.98m to £17.99m on an annual comparison in the six months to 30 September.
Gross profit almost doubled to £4.39m while net operating profit pogoed 62 per cent to £1.12m.
ANS chairman Scott Fletcher (pictured) said: "These figures underline all the fantastic progress we have made. We believe that we are now the UK expert in datacentre provision and the deals that we have been securing with large organisations seem to confirm that."
ANS claims it has made a significant investment in systems and technical staff since 2009, as evidenced by the fact operating costs hiked by 102 per cent to £3.27m during the period.
Cash in the bank rose from £2.43m to £3.26m year on year.
"We do not carry any debt so our customers can be sure that we can provide a stable partnership for them over the life of the solution," said ANS managing director Paul Sweeney.
"With our Infrastructure 3.0 datacentre solution continuing its popularity in both public and private sectors, we expect to have even more impressive figures to announce following our year end on 31 March."
Automation firms UiPath and Automation Anywhere close out their funding rounds with $265m and $300m respectively
