•Deferred revenue was up 38% at US$6.2m (2011: US$4.5m),

Chairman Roger Durn commented:"2012 was a year of operational progress, growth and building for 2013 and beyond. We signed 71 new clients and grew revenues by some 10 percent. We also took the strategic decision to accelerate increases in sales capacity as part of the Board's long-term focus on growth.  In addition to our longstanding organic growth strategy we will continue to evaluate and actively pursue revenue-accretive acquisition opportunities in complementary areas."

 CEO Jay Shaw added: "2012 was a year of success and investment for the future. We start this year with some US$6m in deferred revenue to be recognised in 2013, our best ever opening position. Management expect 2013 to provide new opportunities in terms of deeper sector targeting and geographic expansion. We will continue to drive revenue growth and capitalise on new sales opportunities to increase the Company's market share, especially in highly regulated industries. We are also delighted to announce that we have recently been approved as an independent software vendor partner by IBM and will be exhibiting at the IBM Connect conference later this month."
