29 - Softlogic
I'm extremely privileged and humbled to accept this award on behalf of 9000 people who constitutes our family at Softlogic. Thank you BT Options and the team for selecting us to be amongst the TOP 30 business enterprises in Sri Lanka. Our journey started 25 years ago as an ICT company with a staff strength of a dozen people and an investment of a few million rupees. Today we are a conglomerate with an annual turn over of 50 billion that is future ready and well-positioned in high growth areas of the services and trade sectors of our country.
Our relatively short journey has been remarkable with bold, ambitious and even audacious strides. Our success today is undoubtedly contributed to our team of highly competent and inspired professionals who are the architects of our business strategies. Their energy, enthusiasm and professional conduct have played a key role in our growth as the market leader, not just in one, but several sectors that we are present in. Our business was founded on value creation. Thank you to our millions of customers who have patronised us and finally to our principals on the fruitful collaborations that have helped us throughout the years. As we consider the growth aspirations of our country, increasing sophistication of consumers, increasing purchasing power, increasing tourist arrivals and an increased awareness in healthcare and a digitally inclusive Sri Lanka, we see ourselves in a unique position to continue our double digit growth both in top line and bottom line.
Once again let me thank the BT Options team for all the recognitions and their efforts to inspire the corporate entities in Sri Lanka to reach greater heights.
