·     Current projects include delivering and operating the Multichannel Digital Tax Platform (MDTP), which runs HMRC's Making Tax Digital services; supporting the Ministry of Justice to modernise the technology within the prison estate; and working with DVLA to digitally transform key services such as the UK provisional driving licence system.

 

· In the financial year ended March 2021, spending by Central Government on digital transformation totalled £3.15 billion1, and forecasts predict that the UK GovTech market will reach £20 billion by 2025 (and $400bn globally)2.

 

· Made Tech has a team of approximately 240 staff in the UK, with offices in London, Manchester, Bristol and Swansea.

 

· Made Tech has a track record of delivering organic growth, with revenue increasing at a compound annual growth rate of 89 per cent. over the period from the financial year ended 31 May 2018 to the financial year ended 31 May 2021, without taking any external investment.

 

· The Group's strategy is to achieve sustained revenue, profit, and cash flow growth by expanding Made Tech's capabilities, building out regional hubs and growing the Group's market share within the health, local government, and central government sectors.

 

Admission Highlights

 

· Made Tech raised gross proceeds of £85.4 million at a placing price of 122 pence per share.

In addition, it will support the next stage of our development as we seek to diversify our offer to customers, open new offices across the UK and hire senior business leaders to drive our expansion. We are extremely excited about this next stage of Made Tech's journey.
