Strong Services growth in Q1
Infotel announces a turnover of € 39.1 million in the first quarter of 2014, a fully organic growth of 5.3% compared to first quarter 2013. Continuation of sustained growth, driven by the performance of Professional Services over the quarter (+9.3%) puts Infotel way beyond early estimates for the IT sector market (+1.1% in 2014 Source Syntec).
The Services division (95% of total sales) posted sales of € 37.2 million in Q1, up 9.3%. This positive development is based on good dynamic openings service centers, particularly in the banking sector, and the good development of our “mobility” offer. Intercontract rate remained low at around 2% on average over the quarter.
The Software division (5% of total sales) totaled a turnover of € 1.9 million over the period. As expected, this trend is a return to a normative level of royalties (-45.6% vs. Q1 2013), compared to an exceptional first quarter of 2013 (+49.2 % vs. Q1 2012). Meanwhile, Infotel is continuing actions, particularly internationally, to expand its network of distributors for its products.
The Group’s financial position is strong with € 50.5 million in equity, no debt and a cash level of more than € 30 million (31 March 2014).
Infotel confirms its objectives for growth and stable margins for the year.
The General Assembly today endorsed the payment of a dividend of € 3.5 per share, of which the payment is scheduled for May 30, 2014.
