- Gamma Communications' revenues rose by 10.5% to £92.4min the six months to the end of June.

Gross profits increased by 22.5% to £39.2m with margins improving to 42.4% from 38.3%.

EBITDA increased by 12.0% to £11.2m and pre-tax profits rose by 5.6% to £7.6m while adjusted pre-tax profits were up 16% at £9.4m.

Chief executive Bob Falconer said: "We are pleased with the progress we have made in the first half of 2015. Our current strategic products have continued to grow well in both Channel and Direct markets. Good progress has been made with our pipeline of new products, with our multi-site data network launched on time at the end of June. Our new mobile service is now planned for launch into the market in the first half of 2016. A strong position on the new Crown Commercial Services framework (RM1045) positions the business well for opportunities in the public sector, an area where Gamma is currently under-represented."
