Bagnolet, 18 September 2008

On 18 September, Bernard Lafforet, CEO of the Infotel Group, received the “Prix de la Performance” in the “Development” category.

The Prix de la Performance, organised by Les Échos newspaper and partners of the Corporate portfolio (Accor, AirFrance-KLM, American Express, Europcar and Hertz) since 2001, is presented each month to three business owners from a region.
It was the opportunity of the Seine-Saint-Denis region, where Infotel has its registered address, during September 2008.

Selection process

The selection process of the award winners is complex.
Among the 975 companies registered in the region of Seine-Saint-Denis, and whose 2005 turnover was between 5 and 150 million euro, only the companies who published three consecutive 12-month balance sheets since 2005, whose exports represent at least 5% of their turnover, and who have a positive recurring turnover before taxes in the last three years are eligible.
Only 102 companies where considered for the Prix de la Performance.
Indicators such as the average revenue growth and the export turnover, and finally, the average profit growth calculated over three years are taken into account.
There are three categories for award winners: development, export and innovation.
