Bechtle Reports Revenue Increase in First Quarter.
Perss release from 14.05.2013.
In the first quarter of 2013, Bechtle AG generated revenues of €514.0 million, an increase of 5.4 per cent. Apart from the domestic system houses, the European e-commerce companies also made a disproportionately high contribution to the revenue growth. At €14.5 million, earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) were 16.0 per cent lower than in the prior year. This figure was greatly impacted by the substantial headcount increase in the financial year 2012. As of 31 March 2013, the group had a total of 5,959 employees, 375 more than in the corresponding prior-year quarter.
