London, United Kingdom, July 5th, 2002 – Freedom today announced that it had acquired the application service provider (ASP) division of Centia (formerly Futurelink Europe) for an undisclosed sum.

The business which is based in Newbury, Berkshire, UK provides ASP services to a range of Corporate clients across the United Kingdom. Centia’s ASP customers and infrastructure will be migrated over to Freedom’s ASP division over the next three months, whilst Centia’s ASP staff will commence working for Freedom with immediate effect.

Paul Perry, Managing Director of Freedom comments:-

“This acquisition cements our position as a leading player in the delivery of managed application services to the UK market place. With over 50 customers the combined business will provide ASP services to over 3,500 end users. Centia’s focus on the Corporate sector combined with Freedom’s proven success in the SME sector provides a broad base from which we can continue to rapidly expand. The acquisition provides the business with the critical mass that so many ASP’s in the UK failed to gain and takes us firmly into profit.”
