The increase in operating revenue reported for the half-year period of 14.4 per cent to $204.0 million was attributable to subscriber and ARPU (Average Revenue per Paying User) growth in the underlying business together with the contribution from the Greentree acquisition made in August 2016. The acquisition of Paycorp Payment Solutions Pty Ltd in April 2017 has also contributed to the financial result and has enabled the Group to play a larger role in the provision of automated payment and integrated accounting software solutions.
