Supporting the team’s vision

In 2019 Onecom secured investment from LDC in a £100m deal to allow it to implement its strategy to grow through acquisition.

Onecom has since made 11 acquisitions, taking advantage of market opportunities to acquire scale, capability, and enhanced complementary product sets. The strategy has also helped Onecom to expand their routes to market across a broader customer base – including Enterprise, Business and SME customers.

As a result of this ambitious growth strategy, Onecom has more than doubled revenue and tripled its profitability since the investment, with around £180m of revenues and over £35m EBITDA.

Martin Flick, CEO of Onecom, was named ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ at the Growing Business Awards 2022.
