Revenue growth varied considerably from region to region. In Asia Pacific, revenue doubled as a result of an acquisition which contributed revenue of £8.7m and three software deals. In North America, revenue fell by 5% due to a reduction in software revenues in the first half of the year and revenues fell 27% in the group's Spanish operation although European revenue was up overall at £104.6m, compared to £97.6m in 2011.

"This will continue in the year ahead and we remain confident that we have the right strategy to deliver profitable growth at good margins this year and in the years to come," he added.
