Recruitment software provider Bond International Software reported a much improved interim performance.

Revenues increased 40% to 18.4m in the six months to June 2011, which includes organic growth of 13%. The acquisitions of US software business VCG and the remaining 50% of Strictly Education contributed the rest of the growth. The comparative figures were for a weak trading period so the improvement is effectively a recovery from a low point. Recurring revenues are 11m and VCG brought additional software rental sales. Underlying pre-tax profit rose from 264,000 to 1m.

Bond is cautious about short-term prospects in the US and UK but it believes that growth will come from Asia Pacific in the medium-term. The education outsourcing business continues to win new schools as customers. 

Net debt was 2.3m at the end of June 2011. The disposal of Abacus Software raised 1.8m.

At 43.5p a share, Bond is valued at 15.9m.
