In the six months ended January 31, the company reported a pre-tax profit of £34mln, up from £24.1mln a year ago while revenues jumped to £434mln from £358mln.
The group also added 620 customers in the period, increasing its total by 6.5% to around 10,100.
As a result of the improved performance, the firm’s interim dividend was hiked 36% to 4.5p.
Graeme Watt, Softcat’s chief executive, said the period had been characterised by “additional market share gains” as well as an uptick in gross profit per customer of almost 20%.
“Those metrics extended our run of unbroken year-on-year income and profit growth to the 54th quarter.”
Looking forward, Watt added that the company now expected its full year to be “marginally ahead” of previous expectations.
The increased forecasts followed a previous update in December when Softcat said it had been “materially ahead” of where it had expected to be at the end of its first quarter, contrasting predictions from October that warned “exceptional market conditions” would make it difficult to keep up the pace of growth.
Shares were up 4.9% at 878p.
