Davies today announces its latest annual results to 30 June 2018, which show continued strong growth in revenue and EBITDA.  Revenue increased by 41% to £77.7m and EBITDA grew by 47% to £15.4m on the back of significant investment in technology and digital transformation, alongside more than 100 new account wins and targeted acquisitions to deepen its capabilities.

During the year, Davies simplified its operating structure, with the creation of three market-facing businesses: Claims Solutions, Insurance Services and Customer Solutions.  Its 1400-strong team provides core operations, digital and consulting solutions to more than 400 insurance, highly regulated and global businesses from its bases in the UK, Ireland and Bermuda.

Once again, Davies increased its investment in digital transformation, including the launch of its ‘Disruptive Thinking’ innovation lab, placing the power of new ideas in the hands of its people.  This came alongside continued investment in its claims platform, development of its drone and video capability, and through the acquisition of ServiceTick, the leading insurance-focused customer experience (CX) and analytics platform.
