ASX growth stock expanding its reach

Investors are bidding up Close The Loop shares on Monday after the company reported on a range of potential growth opportunities.

The ASX growth stock said it is looking into opportunities to expand its footprint in the United States, Europe and the Middle East. Over the next 12 months, the company expects to establish new facilities in these locations to support its expanding operations.

The planned expansions are focused on providing enhanced IT refurbishment services and solutions. That includes a new IT refurbishment plant in Mexicali, Mexico. Close The Loop expects that plant will be operational by October.

The company also highlighted its growing HP Inc relationship, noting that IT refurbishment opportunities have been identified with HP Renew Solutions.

And in Europe, the ASX growth stock is expanding its European print consumables program, Circular Planet, into Spain and Portugal.

Commenting on the growth plans, Close The Loop CEO Joe Foster said: "We are excited about the potential opportunities that lie ahead and are dedicated to ensuring a smooth and successful implementation of this expansion plan."

According to Foster:

We acknowledge the importance of effectively managing our resources to support our growth objectives without impacting on the FY 2024 guidance or expected financial results as previously advised to the market. As we move forward, we will diligently leverage our existing working capital and debt facilities to achieve our strategic milestones.

Foster added:

FY 2024 has seen Close the Loop focus and refine its growth strategy in the IT refurbishment space. We have an opportunity to expand into new geographies, work deeper into the consumer business electronic product lifecycle and nurture new OEM [original equipment manufacturer] relationships.

These growth opportunities are a validation and realisation of the ISP Tek Services acquisition and the synergies we expected to flow from the combined businesses.

With today's intraday moves factored in, the ASX growth stock is down around 7% in 2024.
