The essential guide to IT transformation

ARM's Q2 profits have jumped 23 per cent to £8.3 million; up from the £6.7 million it scored a year earlier.

Sales climbed 56 per cent to £36 million, from 23.1 million for the same period last year.

Customers licensing ARM's chip technology is the root of its strong results at a time when other semiconductor operations are finding it tough.

Revenue from licenses brought in £18.5 million - 51 per cent of total sales. Eight existing customers bought upgraded chip designs, and seven new customers signed up.

Chief financial officer Jonathan Brooks said: "With the forward visibility we get from our licensing business model, we remain confident about the outlook for our business for the remainder of the year." ®
