— Case studies
From Directionless to a Growth Powerhouse
When Tophost joined us, they lacked both a CEO and a clear development direction. Their offerings were outdated, and their customer base was shrinking.
With guidance from DHH, they revamped their marketing and product strategies with a renewed focus on comprehensive, cost-effective solutions.
The results? A leap from €1.2m in sales to €1.6m, double-digit growth, solid margins, and a healthy cash flow.
Streamlining Leadership & Amplifying Market Presence
At Plus Hosting, we helped the co-founders actualize their personal goals, with one exiting and the other staying on board. DHH backed the CEO in repositioning the company and even spun off the most innovative part of the business into a standalone entity. We also provided capital and support to consolidate the acquisitions of three competitors.
Today, Plus Hosting is the leading player in the Croatian cloud-hosting market, boasting a turnover of €2.3m and robust margins.
Small Business Turned Market Mover
We acquired Klaro, a €1m business, from owners who took on new roles at DHH. We bolstered the CEO by introducing planning and control practices, as well as product development processes. DHH also provided support during the acquisition of a close competitor.
Klaro is now a fast-growing company, launching several new products on the market and generating over €2m in revenues.
From Near Bankruptcy to Profitable Cloud Computing Leader
Artera was spread too thin, involved in multiple lines of business, and facing a €200k loss that pushed them to the brink of bankruptcy. But DHH saw their potential, taking steps to turn their operations around. We aided the founder in restructuring and redesigning the organization and introducing business planning and control practices.
Today, Artera is a thriving cloud computing company targeting Italian Swiss customers. They now enjoy growth and a positive cash flow.
