Playtech acquisition target Plus500, the AIM-listed CFD provider, has reported a 20 per cent increase in revenue to US$127m for the first half of 2015, despite generating lower revenue in the second quarter due to a combination of quieter markets and the temporary suspension of trading activity in its UK business.

Plus500 said that the company’s performance, including record revenue in Q1, was driven by a successful online marketing campaign and a diverse product offering.
