Atlanta-based supply chain software firm Manhattan Associates reported a $67.3 million profit for 2013, up nearly 30 percent as it gained new customers and grew its business with existing clients.

The company’s net income came to a record 86 cents per diluted share, up from 64 cents in 2012. Revenue grew to $414.5 million, up from $376.2 million the previous year.
