LONDON -(Dow Jones)- U.K. business software company Micro Focus said it expects first-half revenue and earnings to be up sharply from a year ago, and that its two recent acquisitions have performed ahead of expectations.

Micro Focus provides software and consultancy services to help clients update legacy IT platforms, a less-costly solution than buying new systems, particularly for firms looking to save costs due to the economic downturn.

Earlier this year, Micro Focus bought U.S.-based Borland Corp. and Compuware Corp.’s testing and automated software quality business, giving the company a footprint in software testing which ensures that software works properly when it is in development.
