International turnover rose 105% to £2.429m, with divisional contribution to profits increasing to £0.771m. Revenue in Australasia increased more than threefold.
"We have continued to grow internationally with 44% of revenue now generated outside the UK. The domestic market is challenging but the business remains strong and profitable," said chief executive Ken Scott.
He added, "The changes made over the past year have produced a more focused, scalable business that has the potential to show accelerated growth in the coming period."
ILX said it had improved and extended bank facilities.
"Whilst there remains much to do in the second half we remain confident in meeting our full year expectations and in continuing to deliver strong growth," ILX said in a company statement.
