Both are fast-growing businesses that are relatively new listings on the ASX benefiting from the powerful tailwinds of the digital economy and its global horizons.
Let’s take a look at their half and full-year results (respectively) and see what else investors might like about their outlooks.
Aconex shares are up more than 12% to $4.70 after the company posted earnings from core operations of $7 million (excluding numerous one off costs) on revenues of $55.7 million.
