Market trends and drivers
The global demand for highly skilled specialists across industries and sectors has led to a rise in the movement of labor throughout the GCC region as well as between other countries in the world. The movement of skilled and highly educated labor has increased the demands for PSV services in order to avoid recruitments based on fraudulent credentials.
Following the growing requirements for PSV services, Dataflow has established a leading market position in the GCC region with high customer retention. Dataflow offers its clients tailored PSV services with high integrity and quality which are scalable, cost efficient and provide a quick turnaround time. The globalization and the continued movement of labor is expected to offer substantial growth opportunities in both existing and new clients and countries.
The key reasons for EQT’s investment in Dataflow include attractive favorable market trends, dominating position in the niche market as the “de facto” service provider, first mover advantage with strong entry barrier established. As well as a scalable business model with proven track record and substantial growth opportunities, long-term recurring revenue, proprietary database from past verifications and strong cash generating capability, and an experienced management team.
