About Pinnacle


Pinnacle Telecom Group plc (AIM: PINN) is a value added, solutions based provider of integrated telecommunications services including IP solutions. It focuses on the SME market across the UK, where it provides a wide range of communications solutions including telecommunications calls, access and consultancy, IT support, IT Security, mobile solutions - both voice and data and hosted broadband voice services.


Pinnacle is a fully licensed Public Telephone Operator, has its own telephone network and interconnects with BT, Virgin Media and THUS. It has its own hosted voice (VoIP) platforms and engineers and owns Scotland's oldest ISP (and a founder member of Nominet), operating from its data centres in Glasgow, London and Brighton.


Pinnacle's strategy is to be a SME focused, value added, solutions based provider of next generation, cloud-based IP solutions, driven by leveraging organic opportunities as well as through targeted acquisitions. Pinnacle is seeking to acquire and grow businesses to bring together the four main elements of; traditional telephony, hosted cloud-based services, IT support and data centres. A particular target area is data centres, where the combination of recurring revenue and a platform to expand its hosted cloud-based services, would create a compelling earnings-enhancing proposition. A strategic acquisition in this area would potentially be transformational and as data centres are worldwide, it is widening the search parameters.
