SDL Group claims spot in the FT1000 Fastest Growing European Companies

5th March 2019

We are excited to announce that we have been listed within the top 500 companies in Financial Times’ FT1000: Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies report.

The list, compiled by the Financial Times in collaboration with Statista, outlines the top 1,000 European companies ranked in terms of revenue growth. Our position at 454th in the rankings puts us in the top 50% of organisations featured, and we were one of a handful of property experts to make the list.

Making this list is an incredible achievement as the bar was set high this year, as even the lowest ranked company achieved a growth rate of 37.7%, our growth rate for 2018 was 69.2%.

Commenting on the achievement, our chief financial officer Colin Anderton said:

“Earning a position in the FT1000 is an outstanding achievement for us, as it provides public acknowledgement of our excellent performance in all areas of our business.

“Our revenue increases are attributed to success across multiple teams, where we have tried to do things differently in 2018, including SDL Surveying and Stonebridge, where we’ve managed to increase our market share as a direct result of the excellent service we provide. SDL Auctions had an incredible year with 40 auctions held in 2018, as well as creating an online auction business that serves over 500 partners. We’ve also worked tirelessly within SDL Property Management to provide a better service for our customers while growing our PRS proposition.

Reflecting on the success over the past year, Colin continued:

“None of it has been easy, but all of it has been important, and being recognised for our revolutionary approach and significant growth is amazing. All this would not be possible if it weren’t for our brilliant, hard-working, talented people we have here at the SDL Group.”

The rankings were announced by the Financial Times on 1st March 2019 and are available in full on the Financial Times website.
