In reviewing the results, Craig Winkler, MYOB's CEO said, 'Our results for the half year are pleasing with solid organic growth augmented by revenue from the merged Solution 6 businesses. Excluding the effect of the merger our group's revenue grew by 8.5%. Revenue from our Australian Business Division grew by over 10% and we had double digit organic revenue growth in New Zealand and Asia.'
Winkler continued, '2005 is a significant year for our company. We are a much larger organisation than we were at the same time last year, and our results demonstrate our capacity to successfully manage ongoing growth - to the benefit of both our customers and our shareholders. We've provided the consistency we promised MYOB customers at the time of the merger, and have the client satisfaction metrics to prove we're delivering the enhanced experience promised to our new customers from Solution 6. The integration process has been successful and MYOB is a strongly aligned business today.'
