The Services division (95% of total sales) grew by 9.4% in the first 9 months of the year, and a 12.5% increase over the third quarter alone. This excellent performance reflects a high level of activity for all Group entities, with new listings and new contracts with the winning position on Mobility and Big Data.

The Software division (5% of total sales) has returned to a satisfactory level of royalties over the last two quarters.

The Group is positioned on large tenders in archiving and also developing partnerships in Germany in this field.
