Bechtle publishes preliminary figures for Q3 2012.
Neckarsulm, 23.10.2012 – In the first nine months of 2012, Bechtle AG’s revenues climbed to €1.485 billion, an increase of 5.3 per cent (previous year: €1.411 billion). Over the course of the year, the group was able to continually improve upon its revenues.
At €501.6 million, a plus of around 1 per cent, earnings in the months of July to September are just above the previous year’s level. In the third quarter, Bechtle generated an operative income (EBIT) of €18.7 million (previous year: €22.1 million). Over the nine-month period, EBIT amounts to €51.5 million, a decline of some 14 per cent compared to the previous year. This is largely due to an increase in HR costs, which could not be compensated by the increase in revenues and the improvement of the contribution margin. At the balance-sheet date, Bechtle employed 5,978 people, 621 more than in the previous year.
