He added that the group‘s acquisition of US recruitment software group Breezy HR for US$30mln in April would open up avenues for strong organic growth, while LTG’s product offering had been strengthened by the “well-received” launch of a new learning experience platform, Instilled, in May.

Brode said that as a result of these developments the company was confident of achieving its goal of £200mln run-rate revenues and a run-rate EBIT of at least £55mln by the end of 2021.
