The firm also ended the period with a net debt of US$11.6mln, down from US$23.8mln in the same period last year.

In its outlook, the firm reiterated its confidence in the expectations for the full year, adding that it was nearing the completion of rolling out its ticketing and eCommerce technology across attractions and theme parks owned by FTSE 250 leisure group Merlin Entertainments PLC (LON:MERL), with the rollout expected to finish this autumn.

Accesso also said that post-period end it had signed a contract with the Perfect North Ski resort in Lawrenceburg, Indiana for its accesso Passport and accesso Siriusware technologies.

The firm’s accesso Prism ride-booking software was also scheduled to replace its Qbot devices at four additional Six Flags theme parks following a successful trial at Six Flags Over Georgia.

Paul Noland, chief executive of Accesso, said the firm had taken “meaningful steps” to enhance the capacity of its ticketing business, which he said was a “central driver” of company growth.

The results are Noland’s first in the role after he joined the company board in February.
