Latitude can bid for positions on search engines, insert advertising such as banner ads and pop-ups, and analyse how search-engine keywords are performing. In 2008 the private-equity house Vitruvian Partners backed a management buyout in exchange for a 50% stake, and this move led to the appointment of Alex Hoye as chief executive. Sales have risen 51% a year from an annualised £17m in 2005 to £58.7m in 2008.
