Organic growth of 4.5%
Micropole, an international consulting and engineering group specialized in the fields of Business Intelligence, e-Business, ERP and CRM, achieved a consolidated turnover of 30.4 million Euros over the first quarter 2012, up 5.5% on the same period in 2011.
Regarding like-for-like first quarter organic turnover, this stands at 30.1 million Euros, an increase of 4.5% in relation to the same period in 2011.
Despite a relatively bleak situation in the euro zone, and a computer service market probably stagnating during this first quarter of 2012, group turnover growth has continued, although at a slightly slower pace in comparison with that of the previous financial year.
If first quarter sales activity has been fair, the lack of visibility regarding prospects for this current financial year still holds true. In this context, Micropole, on the strength of its solid financial position, will obviously continue to invest and to rely on its main assets, these being its industrial positioning and the diversity of its portfolio and its customer offers.
« This growth in turnover is in line with the prospects communicated at the beginning of the year. While corporate economic fundamentals remain satisfactory, notably those geared to international markets, the complex nature of the macro-economic situation nonetheless incites our customers to delay or segment some of their projects » comments Christian Poyau, C.E.O. of Micropole.
