CSV employs 700 staff across Australia and New Zealand with offices in 27 locations.

Strategy Analysis:
Historically CSV¬īs strategy has been to seek organic growth through aggressively targeting multi-year, annuity contracts and also reaching into new geographies. For acquisitive growth, it made a number of acquisitions in the Print business. But poor management the Canon acquisition resulted in significant underperformance relative to expectations. Following a change of management, current strategy is focused on stabilising the business and improving the performance of Canon. In Print Services the focus is on operational efficiency in Australia and growth through new initiatives in New Zealand. A restructure of the Print Services business is expected to deliver $17m in annual cost savings. The Technology Solutions business has been sold and proceeds will be used to fund debt reduction and a capital return to shareholders.
