Market capitalisation


Datatec is a South Africa-listed multinational ICT business, serving clients globally, predominantly in the networking and telecoms sectors. The group operates through three main divisions: Westcon International (distribution); Logicalis International (IT services); and Logicalis LatAm (IT services in Latin America).

Datatec has seen strong growth globally, with elevated demand for networking, cybersecurity and cloud infrastructure. Amid continuing uncertainties, there are signs that global growth is slowing but we expect established technology trends to persist, underpinned by the unwinding of Datatec’s backlog during FY24.
