Eckoh PLC (LON:ECK) saw its shares rise on Tuesday as the provider of secure payment products and customer contact solutions said trading in the year just ended was in line with expectations.

Following what it called a very strong first half to the year for new business wins, Eckoh delivered double digit percentage new business growth in both divisions in the second half.

In the US, the Secure Payments order book saw the new contract value grow by 47% year-on-year to US$13.7mln from US$9.3mln in the previous fiscal year. The Support and Coral (unified agent desktop solution) businesses both returned to growth in the second half.

In the UK, the total contract value from new business and renewals more than doubled from the previous year.

The group as a whole enjoyed strong cash generation during the period and Eckoh ended the reporting period with net cash of £8.3mln, up from £3.6mln a year earlier.

Eckoh said it has an excellent sales pipeline and continues to see momentum with larger-scale opportunities at enterprise level in both divisions.

In afternoon trading, shares in Eckoh were 6.2% higher at 42.75p.
