Quarter in line with expectations
Services (9% turnover): 12% increase in activity
The commercial activity of the Services division was dynamic during the first quarter, resulting in a 12% growth despite the decrease in scope (sale of Odaxys Consulting at the end of 20071). Several new contracts (consulting and AM) were signed and contributed to the growth of the turnover in the second half. Infotel continued to strengthen its sales teams and its recruitment.
1 Odaxys Consulting was subsidiary of the Odaxys group, part of Infotel since 2006. In 2007, Odaxys Consulting had a turnover of € 1.6 M.
Software (8% turnover): weak dollar and commercialisation of new software
The -15.3% decline is not significant given the record level of royalties recorded in 2007. Despite the prejudicial dollar effect, the Software activity recorded the second best quarter in terms of royalties in the Group’s history. Specific actions were launched to commercialise new Infotel software (archiving, Infoscope Oracle…)
Good forecast for 2008
Infotel reiterates its confidence for 2008 and expects an organic growth above market as well as an increase in profitability.
