On outlook, Peter Simmonds, Chief Executive said:

“I am delighted that the strategy of focusing on fast growing medium sized businesses and corporate clients has driven average monthly spend up by 19%. This combined with a focus on longer term contracts and client retention is leading to significantly higher client lifetime values.

The initiatives to accelerate organic growth that we announced in August 2013 are already starting to deliver increased sales although as a Software as a Service business with monthly recurring revenues, the full impact will not be seen in our results until future periods.

Based on the strong performance at the half year to 31 December 2013 and the forward pipeline, the Board remains confident of achieving both revenue and profit expectations for 2014 and of delivering long term shareholder value.”
