John Gunn, Octagonal's CEO, commented;


"I am very pleased with the growth we have seen during this 1st quarter and over the past year at GIS and I remain optimistic that we can continue this, albeit with seasonal volatility.


The Octagonal RTO transaction (as completed on 30 June 2015) will enhance our visibility to potential end customers who see the advantages of streamlining their business where we can offer competitive rates and improved efficiencies. We will remain focused this year on our core activities and cash generation whilst, in the medium to long term, with our increased management, we will look for further organic growth and also growth through acquisition, but only where we see an enhancement to earnings."
