The Pixel client Science in Sport (SiS) has recently been featured in the Yahoo Finance article ‘2 promising small-cap growth stocks to stash in your ISA.’
The article focuses on the AIM-listed SiS, whose revenue has risen by 28% in 2017 to £15.6m – significantly outpacing forecasts for the sector – 27% of which came from new products.
‘Online sales accounted for 55% of revenue’
The company’s decision to branch out overseas to the US and Italy also looks like a good one – overseas sales accounted for 28% overall. And most importantly (for us!) online sales accounted for 55% of revenue. It’s an amazing online achievement by SiS and The Pixel, and one that’s exceeded all targets and expectations.
‘The company has signed a three-year deal with Manchester United – the richest football club in the world’
The article went on to focus on the reasons behind the success, and highlighted the brand’s alignments last year with numerous sporting bodies such as British Cycling and USA Triathlon, as well as individual athletes such as Olympic champion Adam Peaty. Most recently the company has signed a three-year deal with Manchester United – the richest football club in the world (for the second year in a row) according to Deloitte. The multi-year partnership will see SiS accelerate their vision to ensure athletes take their nutrition and performance to the next level by giving away £1.5million’s worth of product to players across the UK and Europe.
It’s not the first time SiS has got the media talking about their financial success. City A.M. featured the company’s partnership with Team Sky and Liverpool football club, and Team GB heptathlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson.
We’ve recently launched the brand new SiS website on the Magento 2 platform, which we’ll be featuring on the blog shortly – keep your eyes peeled for that and more information on the continued success of our clients.
