Says revenue in the fourth quarter rose 26%, and by 9% in the second half overall, bringing the annual total to £23.3 million. This is 3.3% lower than financial 2022, however. CEO James Gregory says he is ‘delighted’ by the upturn in the second half. ‘The profitable growth in our standard, platform-based products in the US and elsewhere demonstrates that we have the right strategy, business model and management team,’ he says.
