Revenue: £79.4m (+14%)

Net profit: NA     Staff: 402

Five acquisitions made during its fiscal year to 30 November 2020 helped this comms, IT and energy provider hoist revenues by 14 per cent to £79.4m. Rolling out a VoIP solution for former Apprentice winner Ricky Martin's recruitment firm is among the case studies on Focus' website. The West Sussex-based outfit - which is backed by Bowmark Capital - reignited its M&A engines this February by acquiring £22m-revenue, Exeter-based rival swcomm, and also gobbled Glasgow peer HighNet in April.

As a supplier of essential business services - most of which generate contracted revenue - Focus stressed that the impact of Covid has been limited to call and one-off project revenue. It did claim £584,421 through the furlough scheme last year, however.
