Chordiant Software (CHRD) ranked among the winners in a generally upward-trending after-hours session Thursday.Chordiant shares leapt nearly 16% after the software developer inked a contract worth some $26.5 million (a "record" 18.1 million euros), based on recent conversion rates, to "provide perpetual enterprise licenses and support" to an unnamed "leading telecommunications company." The agreement, which covers up to eighteen of the telecom firm's group companies or subsidiaries across four continents, will likely generate future orders or minimum payments for Chordiant through April 2009.
