This Switzerland-based software licensing giant doubled in size when it completed its acquisition of rival Comparex in January 2019. Although it hasn't yet filed any UK numbers that reflect its enlarged scale, SoftwareONE tells us its UK business generated revenues "in excess" of £300m in calendar 2019, including 11 months' contribution from Comparex. Post-merger, it employs around 200 staff in Wimbledon, Harrow and York.

Having floated on the SIX Swiss Exchange in October 2019, SoftwareONE saw total 2019 revenues double to CHF 7.3bn (£6.1bn), with a "strong performance" in its 1H 2020 pushing its top line up a further five per cent YoY to CHF 3.94n (£3.3bn).
