Media Square was floated on AIM in September 2000 with new management taking control of the board in October 2002. The business has been transformed during the last three and a half years through a combination of organic growth and the acquisition of nearly 30 businesses.
Following the acquisition of a number of marketing services businesses from Huntsworth plc in November 2005 for £63m, Media Square’s largest acquisition to date, the company has pro-forma turnover of over £200m, approximately 1,700 employees, and 2,500 clients with operations spanning Europe, the Far East, Africa and America.
The business currently operates in four principal areas, namely retail marketing services; marketing communications; specialist communications and on-line advertising and marketing. Today, Media Square is one of the largest and fastest growing UK-quoted marketing companies.
