Marketing services group Optimisa plc (EPIC: OPS) today announced its unaudited preliminary results for the 12 months to 31st December 2007. Optimisa’s commitment to both organic growth and growth through acquisition is reflected in the strong headline numbers.

Despite the current uncertainties in the market, the Board remain confident of delivering above average growth in 2008. A combination of proactive risk mitigation measures, the strengthening of the executive management team and the full integration of the recently acquired eq group companies (EQ), together with the continuing search for acquisition opportunities home and abroad, mean there is an achievable expectation that the business can double in size again in the coming year.

Simon Dannatt, CEO of Optimisa noted: “As a consequence of both further organic growth and the full impact of the acquisition of EQ we expect the business to double in size in the coming year. Our ability to advise on ‘defence’ as well as ‘attack’, means we are very well placed to withstand sector or market downturns and are continuing to win business in sectors already under pressure from the credit crisis. Optimisa’s success is driven by our people – with their continued hard work, high quality outputs and commitment we can once again exceed expectations in 2008.”

Ron Littleboy, Chairman of Optimisa, commented: “2007 has been a year of significant achievement for the Company with strong organic growth from KAE and the successful integration of nxtMOVE and AIA. We are already seeing significant group benefits from the acquisition of EQ and the Board looks forward to 2008 with confidence.”
