Combined growth in services and software
Infotel publishes a turnover of 86.4 M€ for the 1st half of 2015, growing, entirely organically, by 13.9%. The growth observed in the first quarter (+12.9%) accelerated in the second quarter (+15.0%).
The deployment of the Services division associated with the growth of the Software division confirms the relevance of the economic model and the capacity of Infotel to regularly exceed the growth estimates of the IT sector (+1.8% in 2015, Source Syntec).
The Services division (95% of total turnover) posted turnover of €82.3 million in the 1st half, up 13.7%. During the period, the Banking sector continued to grow with the ramp-up of major service centers (Banque de France, BNP Paribas, Crédit Mutuel and BPCE). The banking sector (34% of Services activity) is now the leading contributor in terms of turnover, ahead of the Industry sector.
As a reminder, Infotel announced in early April the opening of a new subsidiary in the United Kingdom, to support key accounts in the British market. The Group has also opened a new agency in Strasbourg offering proximity to local players and thus enabling it to complete the densification of the territorial network.
Finally, the inter-contract rate remained very low, around 2%, over the entire period and the pace of recruitment is in line with objectives.
The Software division (5% of total turnover) totaled a turnover of €4.2 million in the 1st half of 2015. The Software division experienced an increase of 18.4% thanks to the good level of sales and a positive of the euro/dollar parity.
Finally, Infotel obtained at the end of June the renewal of the “Innovative Company” qualification by Bpifrance Financement for FCPIs.
Confidence for 2015
