Delcam achieved record sales during the festive season, the software company announced Thursday.

The UK firm said orders for software licences and maintenance contracts increased 10% in December, compared to the same month the previous year.

Sales were boosted by growth in exports and demand from automotive, aerospace and dental industries.

The company reported a particularly strong performance in its Beijing and Philadelphia offices, its Italian subsidiary and its Korean joint venture.

The latest achievement follows the company's highest ever half-yearly sales for the period ended June 30th, 2012.

Clive Martell, Chief Executive of Delcam, said: "December is traditionally the best month of the year for our software business and it is encouraging to see that we continue to set new records. I am delighted that Delcam has ended an already strong year on a new high."

Shares were up 2.92% to 1,057.50p at 8:37 Thursday.
