LSE 1000 companiesAdestra, a leading provider of innovative marketing technology software and services, has been identified as one of London Stock Exchange’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’. The report is a celebration of the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses.

To be included in the list, companies need to show consistent revenue growth over the past four years, significantly outperforming their industry peers. With 500-plus clients worldwide across a number of key sectors, Adestra has experienced annual double-digit revenue growth for more than a decade.

This follows news of Adestra’s first institutional investment in the company since its founding in 2004.

Henry-Hyder Smith, CEO at Adestra explains:

“We’re delighted to have made the list and have all the hard work put in by our global team recognised. Our exciting global growth plans are on schedule and the recent $7.2 million BGF funding means we can accelerate our expansion.

“There are also some Adestra clients in the list, so we’re in good company!”

Xavier Rolet, Chief Executive, London Stock Exchange Group said:

“High growth SMEs are the driving force behind the UK economy, developing the skills, jobs and growth we need. But ambition alone is not enough; their success must be highlighted and their growth properly supported with appropriate finance. That’s why today’s event is so important: demonstrating the strong alliance between UK Government, financial market participants, investors, entrepreneurs and companies to support these inspiring businesses.”

The Rt. Hon. George Osborne MP added:

This year’s list of 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain is truly remarkable. The businesses and entrepreneurs in the report are a fantastic illustration of the UK’s pioneering, entrepreneurial spirit and our nation’s capacity to produce world-class innovation.

“It is my pleasure to congratulate all the companies featured and London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) for all it does to support dynamic UK businesses up and down the country, as they grow and seek to achieve scale.”
