On target to hit £7.5m in revenue this year, Fatsoma recently secured investment from the North West Fund for Digital & Creative as it targets rapid expansion in 2014.

Ben Taylor, director, said: “Novus has made a substantial investment into its digital operations and outlined its intentions to become a market leader for digital. We’re delighted to be working alongside them and confident that together we can achieve those objectives.”

Ollie Taylor, digital development manager at Novus, added: “Fatsoma are like an extension of our marketing department, providing our business with extremely easy-to-use, intuitive tools to allow us to sell and increase online ticket sales.

“We’ve enjoyed a successful relationship with them in the past and are looking forward to strengthening it with this deal.”
