Growth in services and software
Infotel announces a turnover of € 44.1 million for Q1 2015, with an organic growth of 12.9%. The continuous development of the Services division over the period continues to demonstrate the ability of Infotel to exceed the IT industry growth estimates (+ 1.8% in 2015, Source Syntec).
The Services division (95% of total sales) posted revenues of € 41.7 million in Q1, up 12.1%. This increase reflects the regular pursuit of service centers openings, in particular an increase of the Bank sector and renewed vigor in the Insurance / Retirement sector.
Earlier in April Infotel announced the opening of a new subsidiary in the UK, near Newcastle, to support key accounts in the British market. The Group also opened a new office in Strasbourg with a proximity to local actors thus completing the densification of the territorial network.
Finally, the rate of inter-contracts remained very low, at around 2% throughout the quarter.
The Software division (5% of total sales) totaled a turnover of € 2.37 million in the first three months of 2015, up 28.1%, thanks in particular to the rise of IBM royalties.
Confidence for 2015
Infotel confirms for 2015 a growth rate of activity as sustained as in 2014 and an improvement of results.
The General Assembly today endorsed the payment of a dividend of 0.8 € per share, which payment date is scheduled for May 27, 2015.
