During the investment period, revenue was grown by more than 70%. The management team was also strengthened with the addition of a new CFO and COO. New products were launched, including an evaluation service to measure the effectiveness of PR campaigns, and a dedicated social media service. Three bolt-on acquisitions were completed enabling the business to diversity its product offering. In June 2014 Precise was sold successfully to WPP plc, the FTSE 100 global marketing services group.

"Phoenix know when to stand their ground and when to be flexible. They have strong views of their own but are good listeners.”
