“But there is much more to come. We’ve received great feedback from our customers regarding our new strategy and our enhanced suite of product and service offerings.



“We look forward to continuing to deliver greater value to both advertisers and consumers during the year ahead.

With the new website and brand launch in December 2021, and an increasing range of commercial partnerships successfully established, the transformation of OnTheMarket to create a tech-enabled property business across the broader property ecosystem is accelerating.  Our new website, and initiatives such as Only With Us, continue to attract serious property seekers and connect them with our agents.”

In addition to revealing the Canopy investment, the OTM results - for the financial year ending January 31 - show a £7m increase in turnover to £30.8m and a £200,000 increase in profits to £2.6m.
