Software developer Stratatel’s (ASX:STE) net profit slumped 77% in 1H10, despite a 43% increase in revenue.
The company lifted its revenue to $6.1 million due to the acquisition of a business providing IBM software and licensing solutions to corporate clients.
But profit fell to $184,500, and ebitda fell 26% to $631,400. Statatel said these declines were down to a strategic decision to invest in sales, marketing and technical resources at the temporary expense of earnings.
Managing director Mike Fairclough said he expected revenue to increase going forward.
