VoiceSage Set’s Eye On IPO

VoiceSage launched into the market in 2008 having spent five years developing its global leading voice product – a personalised automated interactive voice messaging product solution. Growth of 200% to 300% followed while the company had resources to strongly drive its sales and marketing. VoiceSage has been profitable in seven of the last eight years and used those profits to add close to €1 million each year to its annual revenues. The company has developed a complete suite of messaging solutions, which include rich media messaging, interactive text messaging, API’s, social media, beacon technology and a range of other products.

Today VoiceSage has survived two recessions, fully launched its software platform on Amazon and gained blue chip clients in retail, financial services and utilities. VoiceSage clients deeply value the robust yet easy to use platform and suite of products that the company has developed. Those clients not only stay with VoiceSage year after year but also continue to grow their level of usage and thus business with the company on an annual basis. Brexit did have a significant currency impact on revenues in 2017, but the company is now poised to grow strongly in the years ahead. The company has recently brought on board Philip Morris and Car Trawler amongst a range of new customers. In addition, the company has now put in place seven new international reseller partnerships. These partners have committed to sell VoiceSage products to their existing and new customers in over fifty countries.

The company is very confident that it can grow business in the UK and successfully expand into new geographic territories. These new European markets offer major potential and have much stronger gross margins than in the UK. It is expected that resellers will this year begin contributing up to 20% of annual revenues and that figure will grow in future years. VoiceSage is language agnostic and already sends communications to over 200 countries. The platform and products were designed to work at scale. Thus, once we raise the new investment via Equity and EIS the primary focus will be on growing our sales and marketing and driving up revenues and profitability. VoiceSage plans to grow annual revenues to over €60 million within the first 2 years. Medium sized companies in our market are all bought out by international technology corporations once their revenues reach €20 million per annum. Otherwise VoiceSage will do an IPO to give liquidity to its shareholders. 

Listing VoiceSage on Capital Platform provides us with the ideal marketing solution and ensures that our product is only promoted to persons who are authorised in accordance with FSMA.

Capital Platform has an established network of registered IFAs, wealth managers and family offices with an appetite for this type of alternative investment.
