The company, which provides billing, charging and customer management systems, will pay an increased interim dividend of 2.10p per share in June, up from 1.75p in H1 2020 - a 20 per cent rise year-on-year.
CEO Louis Hall said: "Over the last three quarters, we have signed two of the largest contracts in the company's history. This reflects the strength of our solutions and services capability, our increasing market profile, and the significant investments being made by telecommunication providers in infrastructure and systems.
"Recent new contract wins have lifted our back order book to a new record level, and we therefore remain very confident of continuing revenue and earnings progression. The strong sales pipeline also provides further opportunities to accelerate Cerillion's growth."
