XLN, the UK’s leading essential services provider to small business, is the fastest growing telecoms company in the UK according to new research. The business provider made #85 on the 2015 Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100 which ranks Britain’s 100 private companies with the fastest-growing profits, based on performance over the past 3 years. XLN has had remarkable growth over the last year. A management buy-out in Q4 of 2014 yielded ECI Partners a 3x return on its investment in XLN. Moreover, the small business provider expanded both its offices with a move to Millbank Tower for its HQ in London and an investment IRO of £40m in employment at One Northbank in Sheffield.
Founder and CEO said: “I’m absolutely delighted XLN have made the Sunday Times Profit List. This past year has been an exciting one for XLN, with huge expansion to Sheffield and a management buyout by GSO Capital.” “With our newly expanded organisation we have an even bigger dedicated and enthusiastic team in place who understands the pressures small business owners face on a day to day basis. Winning this shows our capability of supporting the UK’s heroes of the economy through expert service and uniquely tailored products.” Over a challenging 3 years, an increase in sales meant profits for XLN rose by 46.21% from £12.8m in 2014.
