Blog: Dean BestOcado looks to answer challenges

Dean Best | 29 March 2010

News that Ocado is looking to nail down a site for another distribution centre seems to answer one of the central questions fired at the UK online retailer - that it needs to demonstrate plans for expansion.

The company, which is insisting its plans for an IPO this summer will succeed, is facing questions from potential investors - notably on how it will expand, deliver profits and how it will deal with its unorthodox relationship with Waitrose, a company with its own online operations.

All these issues are discussed in just-food's latest 'in the spotlight' piece here and are central to whether investors, at a time when the market for IPOs remains unpredictable, believe in the strength of the Ocado business.
