It’s the most wonderful time of the year …
The mince-pies are in the microwave, the tinsel on the office tree and Secret Santa, thankfully, over for another year. It’s been a great year, and as we head towards wrapping up it up, it looks like Santa decided to throw something extra in his sack this year as the UK’s most active investor welcomes Waracle to its portfolio – an incredible £4.8m investment from BGF!
This is really exciting, really big news. We’ve never been stronger or more relevant as a company, and our pipeline of digital innovations never more robust. Supporting the strength and equity of our brand, BGF’s investment is a game-changer, supporting our organic expansion and future growth as we continue to broaden our geographic reach and bring our people and their expertise to wherever it’s needed.
Chris Martin, CEO of Waracle – “We’ve built a fantastic business over the last 12 years, investing in great talent and building long-term partnerships with some of the UK’s most recognisable brands. We’ve now identified the right partner in BGF, with a great team that understands and supports our growth strategy. BGF’s expertise, knowledge and experience, will be invaluable as we enter this next stage of our growth”.
Consistently delivering unique, leading-edge mobile and digital technologies means we’re making a profound impact across the industries we serve, and we’ll continue to do so with the support of the BGF team. Their knowledge will be invaluable as we enter this next stage of our growth.
BGF first came across Waracle 4-5 years ago, and it’s a testament to our collective vision and hard work that we’ve seen it grow into something we’re all really very proud of. With all the hallmarks they look for in a high potential business – “long term relationships with blue-chip companies, a really engaged team, and general culture of being passionate about what you do” – the BGF team are as excited as we are about where this journey will take us next. Richard Pugh, an investor at BGF, says, “We’re delighted to welcome Waracle to the BGF portfolio, a business which has cultivated a fantastic reputation with a rapidly-growing blue-chip client base and supported by a great team that we’re looking forward to working with”. They, and we, can’t wait to see what 2020 and beyond has in store for this really exciting partnership.
