According to SafeCharge CEO David Avgi:
The operational momentum built over the last two years has continued into the first half of 2016. This has enabled SafeCharge to deliver further growth, reporting revenues of US$52.2 million (H1 2015 US$ 49.5 million) and Adjusted EBITDA of US$16.8 million (H1 2015: US$15.2 million).
The first half of 2016 was a period of further success and growth for the Group. I am proud to report that several of our latest innovations in technology based payment solutions have been successfully rolled out to serve our clients.
Whilst we continue to advance in our core verticals, the Group has made exciting progress in entering our new target sectors and over coming months we will focus and invest further to build our sales teams in order to further accelerate entry into these sectors.
