Reckon Limited’s Group CEO, Clive Rabie, says the company’s half-year results are very strong. “The result in the Business Division is especially pleasing with continued strong organic sales growth across all channels, particularly in the Enterprise product range. This reflects strong customer satisfaction with our products and services, which is leading to increased demand and growing market share,” says Rabie.

“In the Professional Division we continue to add new customers at a good rate and we are also ramping
up the roll out of new modules to meet demand from existing customers.” Reckon has also pointed to the successful integration of nQueue and Billback businesses into the group in the last 6 months to help strengthen their position. The company has also highlighted further plans for growth. “Our aim across the Group is to develop a tight integration between our products, creating collaboration between business, banks, accountants, lawyers and statutory bodies. This supports our pursuit of making the lives of both our accountants and their clients easier,” says Rabie.

Operating cash flow has increased 82% to $11.9 million. As a result of the strong cash flow position
Reckon has announced an interim dividend of 3.5 cents per share, compared with 3 cents for the interim
dividend in 2009.
