The entrepreneur Matthew Riley is continuing to expand his company Daisy, having made five acquisitions since 2005, and is planning up to five more before the end of this year. The Lancashire company, founded in 2001, has just won a five-year contract with Peacocks, worth £5m, to supply all its data and voice communications. Sales have risen 63% a year from an annualised £6m in 2003 to an annualised £16m in 2005, with Riley considering a flotation next year on the Alternative Investment Market.
