Knutsford-based DJI Holdings (Aim: DJI) provides software for sales and distribution of lottery products in China.
It suffered a setback in 2015 when the Chinese authorities suspended online lottery sales, but its strategy of diversifying into mobile payments and a contract with the operator of the Xinhua news app have led to a rebound in the firm’s shares, which have risen by more than 160% in the last year.
The shares now stand at just over 30% above the price at which they were first sold in 2014.

The share price has slid by more than 60% in the last year.
