Results were buoyed by new developments and contracts including two technology deals which have reached delivery and financial milestones this year.
The group said last year was a period of significant progress in terms of delivering on its acquisitive growth objectives for the year and for expansion projects.
With a wealth of agreements now in place, the company expects business to increase this year.
The group said it has been approached for more prospective acquisitions, but will be focusing on existing opportunities. Material acquisitions will only be considered where they are significantly earnings enhancing.
Rob Terry, Chairman and Group Chief Executive of Quindell, said: "During 2012 Quindell has demonstrated the value of its unique offering for the UK insurance market.
"We look forward to continuing this throughout 2013 with the confidence that through continuing to deliver we will capitalise on this opportunity to help our existing and prospective clients and generate significant benefits for our shareholders."
