Very high activity in 4th quarter

Infotel announces a turnover of € 43.6 million in Q4 2014, up 15.7% from the fourth quarter of 2013. For the full year, sales totaled € 157.0 million against € 142.7 million in 2013, representing an annual fully organic growth of 10.0%. The Group demonstrates, in a quasi-stable market, the relevance of its offer and its strategy of reinforcing its positions within its customers.

The Services division (95% of total sales) posted a growth of 11.4% over the full year, with a continuous increase over the year and of 16.6% in the fourth quarter alone. This excellent performance is linked to a very strong activity in service centers, particularly in the Banking and Services sectors.

The inter-contract rate remains low at 1.6% in the last quarter and spring for the full year to 1.9%. The Group continued the integration of new engineers in the last quarter with 222 additional recruits for the entire year, bringing the workforce to 1,233 at the end of 2014.

The Software division (5% of total sales) posted Q4 sales of € 1.9 million, equivalent to sales in the last quarter of 2013. For the year, revenues amounted to € 7.2 million, down 11.6% compared to 2013, with an amount of royalties of € 3.9 million against € 4.6 million in 2013. The Group continues to pursue its efforts to forge new partnerships to distribute its software.

This high level of activity reinforces Infotel in its aim to achieve in 2014 an operating margin above 10% of turnover.
