Robust business level

Infotel posted revenue growth of 13.7% in Q3 2018 and 12.2% for the first nine months of the year. These excellent performances were based on entirely organic growth.

The Services division turned in very strong growth of 14.3% in Q3 and 12.5% for the first nine months of the year. Digitization of all businesses resulted in additional contract renewals or new clients in the major accounts segment. This growth benefited all of Infotel’s sectors of operation (Banking, Industry, Services and Transportation).
The intercontract rate held steady at a very low level, i.e. averaging 1.9% over the quarter. Several new recruitments were carried out in Q3, with 86 new employees hired in September, bringing the total headcount to 2,466 at end-September 2018.
In an effort to ease the recruitment tensions affecting the entire sector, Infotel rolled out a plan to improve the number of recruitments while cutting costs and enhancing employee loyalty.

The Software Division recorded IBM royalties amounting to $1.35 million. Strong momentum in sales of the Orlando solution could well generate new licensing sales by the end of the year.

The Group, still focused on external growth with several active leads, is optimistic that both business and profitability will further improve by the end of the year.
