Shares of LoopUp Group PLC (LON: LOOP) surged 13.6% today after the cloud communications and remote meetings software provider reported its H1 2020 earnings, which beat analysts expectations by a wide margin.

The company reported that its gross profits for the first half of 2020 ending June 30 were £12.2 million, a 247% jump as compared to last year, while its revenues rose 43% to £31.9 million.

LoopUp co-CEO’s Steve Flavell and Michael Hughes issued a joint statement saying: “It has been a strong and incredibly busy first half for our business as [coronavirus] has accelerated changes in working habits.
