MIKE LAWRIE, CHIEF EXECUTIVE COMMENTED:

“Our first half financial performance clearly shows that we are delivering in line with the strategy we set out in March last year. Our Healthcare division has stabilised and is positioned for growth; Banking and Treasury & Capital Markets both continue to make good progress with a number of new name wins; and we are seeing strong growth from our newly established Global Services unit.

We have rebalanced our portfolio to focus on the highest growth areas of the markets we serve and we are partnering to address new markets. Last week we announced a strategic relationship with Digital China which will enable us to access the important and growing Chinese market. This complements other key partnerships we have executed, including with HCL, which enables us to access India, one of the world’s other great growth economies.

We are building for the future and investing to drive long term growth. These results are another data point which evidence that Misys is beginning to grow and deliver on its promises to customers and shareholders.”
