Attained is a profitable Australian leading managed IT and cloud services provider, deploying and managing technology solutions across a variety of enterprises to improve performance and efficiency. The acquisition is expected to accelerate the Company’s strategic move into the broader cloud microservices IT sector, leveraging the IT infrastructure foundations built over the last three years.

The acquisition of Attained is deemed an initial, strategic steppingstone for the Company, covering several technology layers, deemed critical to build an end-to-end market offering. These include, among others:

    • Cyber Security.
    • Managed IT services.

On 27 February 2023, the Company announced the proposed divestment of the DC Modular business assets to D Comm Infrastructure Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of D Comm Ventures Pty Ltd, a leading Web 3.0 technology company, to generate $3 million in cash (before costs).

The DC Modular business assets have been identified as non-strategic towards the Company’s tech- focussed growth objectives. The completion of this transaction is subject to conditions precedent.

The Company expects to settle this transaction by the end of the fiscal year.

Outlook:

Aligned with its transition to the next phase of growth (ASX: 31 October 2022), the Company will continue to assess several M&A growth opportunities aimed at building a unique technology offering, within the cloud microservices sector.

The Company intends to focus on critical technologies and services towards this goal, including a continuous assessment on non-critical divisions.

If you aren't reading this on a personal computer or laptop — unthinkable in 1970 — you're probably using a smartphone, and phones that can access the internet have only been around since 1996.

For any investor, the tech sector may be a desirable investment opportunity, and ETFs can be a safer way to get into an industry. For those unfamiliar, an ETF, or exchange-traded fund, is a basket of securities that is traded like a stock on an exchange and comes in many different types — market ETFs, foreign market ETFs, commodity ETFs and so on.
