About the Megabuyte50 awards

The Megabuyte50 awards identify the 50 best financially performing, privately owned companies in the UK mid-market. The awards differ from other ‘growth’ awards in the superior rigour of their financial analysis and their specific focus on pure-breed technology companies, rather than companies with a peripheral involvement with technology.

As such they provide a highly sophisticated and influential benchmarking reference for companies or the investor and advisory communities seeking to understand relative peer performance. Companies’ rankings are calculated using ‘The Megabuyte Scorecard’, a proprietary benchmarking methodology developed by the research team at Megabuyte, pooling over 50 years of combined experience assessing the performance of software, IT and telecoms services companies. The methodology uses seven key measures: two each for growth, margins and cash flow, as well as overall size. These measures are then weighted to provide the optimum balance for mid-market and later-stage companies.
