Combined with natural operating leverage, the business has seen significant earnings growth and excellent shareholder returns.”

Outlook

Mr Klim said: “With a strong pipeline of client opportunities, a solid balance sheet position and increasing scale benefits, Bravura enters FY19 in a compelling position to capitalise on further sales and investment opportunities.”

The company said that as a result of strong recurring revenue and new sales opportunities, full-year 2019 EPS growth is expected to be in the mid-teens.
