Jenks also highlighted a deal struck in March with Norwegian utility company Ustekveikja Energi AS for Brady to support its physical power market in the Nordic region.

He added that the company had also launched its new FAST START implementation offering for metals trading lifecycle management in May, a preconfigured cloud-based solution which enables clients to trade immediately.

Jenks said: “We have recruited new people, considerably streamlined the organisation and we are now seeing the results of this across the business as we continue to move towards our goal of being a high quality, scalable software business.”

In March, Jenks said that: “The period of consolidation and re-structuring is complete; in 2018 we expect to resume progress in both sales and profitability and look to the future of the group with confidence.”
