Perth-based IT services company ASG Group (ASX: ASZ) has confirmed that several parties have expressed interest in buying its data centre.
CEO Geoff Lewis announced plans to sell the Perth facility as part of a capital management program in an ASX announcement during October 2013.
At a media briefing in Sydney, Lewis said that while a “number of people” were interested in the data centre it would only be sold if the company received what he considered a “fair return”.
“We don’t see it as a strategic asset. However, it is producing good profits and has long term [customer] contracts," he said.
In August, the company reported a small revenue rise of $152.5 million for the financial year ended 30 June, up from $150.3 million in 2012.
However, ASG Group also announced a net loss of $29.9 million while earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) fell to a loss of $19.9 million from $20.6 million the previous year.
