The group said it continues to see excellent momentum in US Secure Payments while in the UK it has “seen excellent progress” in contract wins after a period of transition in the prior year.

“The renewed momentum in our restructured UK sales function and a focus on larger strategic accounts are bearing fruit, returning us to the expected levels of new business,” Eckoh said.

As in the US, the total value of new contracts won in the first half of the current fiscal year has exceeded the total won in the whole of fiscal 2018.

The group has, as expected, seen a stronger performance from key channel partners such as BT and Capita.

At the end of September Eckoh had net cash of £3.4mln, up from £1.7mln a year earlier.

In a separate announcement, Eckoh confirmed N+1 Singer as nominated adviser (nomad) and joint broker to the company and Canaccord Genuity as joint broker to the company.
