The company also reported a pre-tax profit of US$5.52mln, up from US$4.55mln in the prior year, while revenue rose to US$7.72mln from US$6.83mln in 2018.

Tekcapital noted that over the year it had reduced its operating expenses by 7% to US$1.59mln, while service revenue now covered around 55% of costs.

Looking ahead, in a statement, the company’s executive chairman Clifford Gross said the group was “currently exploring early-stage venture funding” for a number of its portfolio companies and were confident that the strategy “should result in further increases in returns on invested capital as our portfolio companies continue to mature towards exits”.

"I'm glad to report that through the collective efforts of our dedicated and capable team we have achieved record results in 2019. The continued development of our portfolio companies combined with improved service revenues has resulted in solid financial performance”, Gross added.

The company's shares jumped 3.8% to 17.7p in late-morning trading on Wednesday.
