||Adjusted EBITDA (£'000)
- Service contracts - The service contracts are a key aspect of the business as these not only maintain turnover throughout the quieter summer months, but also generate repair and installation work throughout the year.The Directors believe that there is an opportunity to sign up more contracts from existing customers as 42 of the 203 customers who used the Business last year do not have a service contract.Current service contracts range from £100 to £9,000 per annum. Taking an average of £500 per contract for those 42 potential customers, this would increase turnover by £21,000. However,turnover would increase by significantly more than that as service contracts generate a high level of additional repair and installation work.
- Dedicated sales manager - A dedicated sales manager would be able to source new customers requiring installations, repairand servicing work.
