The acquisition was an all-share transaction with a substantial portion of total acquisition price subject to revenue-growth performance hurdles. The acquisition facilitated a seamless interconnection of all products and services into one “easy-to-deploy” customer edge to hybrid cloud full stack service offering, which was expected to yield revenue and product synergies.

Blue Sky currently has over 400 active clients with the majority located in Western Australia. Its revenue has grown by 20 per cent to A$2.4 million in FY20 and growth was expected to accelerate materially in FY21. Revenue year-to-date, as at the end of March 2021, was A$2.9 million and the company was very optimistic about the final quarter of the financial year and beyond. The significant increase in FY21 revenue was due to Blue Sky’s new Enterprise and Satellite divisions.

What’s the reason behind acquisition?

The acquisition formed part of NEXION Group’s expansion strategy outlined in the company’s recent prospectus, specifically acquiring local ICT service providers, which brought relevant skills and expertise to the group as well as the opportunity for accelerated growth.
