simultaneously driving organic growth: in less than two years since flotation, 
Access Intelligence has acquired and successfully integrated five businesses.

The Business Model

The majority of the Group's income is derived from repeat revenues delivered 
through recurring contracts ranging between one and five years in duration. 
This model provides excellent visibility of future revenues and ought, with 
effective customer retention, to generate outstanding gross margins over the 
longer term.

The Strategy for Growth

The strategy is to acquire businesses which have good management and high growth 
potential that fit the revenue model while, at the same time, adding value to 
the Group's existing services.

The businesses acquired will have substantial autonomy to develop within budgets 
agreed with the Group Chief Executive and Finance Director, whilst benefiting

expanding group of companies.

At this stage in development, the Group's Executive Team which is based in York,

non-executive directors will continue to be involved in sourcing and evaluating 
potential acquisitions and monitoring the performance of the Group.
