Ian Bowles, Chief Executive Officer of Allocate, commented:
”The 2010 financial year was another outstanding year for Allocate, the fourth consecutive year of record results.  We continued to strengthen our position in the UK Healthcare market with the acquisition of Dynamic Change and we now have a significant presence in Europe with the acquisition of Time Care in Sweden. In both Maritime and Defence we grew the business year-on-year and in Defence we secured a major order from the Australian Army for £2m of licence revenue. I remain confident in our prospects and I expect 2011 to be a year of further progress.”
