First quarter growth driven by Services

Infotel posted organic growth in revenue of +6.9% in the first quarter of 2019, outperforming the Syntec Numérique forecast of average market growth of 3.9% for the current year.

The Services division expanded by 7.2% in the first quarter, continuing its growth despite there being one less business day than in 2018. The Banking sector (36% of revenue) remained strong, followed by the Manufacturing sector (28% of revenue), which expanded, and Services, which accounted for nearly 22% of total revenue.

First-quarter revenue included €0.6 million for Coach’Is. The synergies planned are getting off to a good start with, in particular, large opportunities to develop our know-how in the management of motorway networks.

Software activity was almost stable with revenue of €2.25 million, including €1.37 million related to royalties from IBM.

Infotel is pursuing an active canvassing strategy in Europe and the United States for the sale of Orlando and its other software solutions (Arcsys, IdbA, DB/IQ).

With 130 gross new hires over the period, the total headcount stood at nearly 2,545 persons at end-March 2019. The inter-contract rate remained low at an average of 2.3% for the quarter.

Confidence for 2019
