Profits from its global operations grew to £69.3m for the half-year ending 31 March as turnover rose to £279m from £229m in 2001 with customer numbers reached 2.9 million.
Sage finance director Paul Harrison described the results as ‘robust’ and said the company remained ‘cautiously optimistic despite tough market conditions’.
