Revenue: £70.2m (+32%)

Net profit: -11.9%     Staff: 340

This Newbury-based IT solutions and services provider saw revenues rise by nearly a third in its year to 31 March 2020 as 2018 blockbuster acquisition Esteem Systems made its first full-year contribution to the ledger. The integration of Wetherby-based Oracle and Citrix partner Esteem - including the rationalisation of the group's property portfolio - is now complete, chairman Simon Derry said in his annual report. Billing itself as a "transformation service provider", Roc boasts long-term contracts in the energy, defence, legal and life sciences sectors.

Covid impact

Derry said robust trading among customers in verticals such as nuclear, local and national government during the pandemic has been balanced by "serious challenges" in others, such as non-food retail, travel, leisure and airports.
