Bechtle records double-digit growth in revenue and earnings.
Revenue up over 15% to some
EBT increased by 12% to some
Neckarsulm, 09.02.2018 – According to preliminary figures, Bechtle is set to close the books on yet another very successful business year. The IT group shows double-digit growth rates across all four quarters of 2017. In the overall 2017 fiscal year, revenue climbed by over 15% to around €3.57bn, with contributions from all business segments. Earnings before taxes in 2017 are up some 12% to around €163m, which translates to an EBT margin of 4.6%. As of 31 December 2017, Bechtle had a total of 8,353 employees, 8.9% more than in the previous year.
“2017 was another very successful business year for Bechtle. We were able to keep up our excellent momentum throughout the year, which also enabled us to compensate extraordinary items to the amount of €4.5m, which affected earnings in the previous year. At the same time, we continued to invest in numerous strategic projects to further develop our top-notch position in the European IT market,” explains Dr Thomas Olemotz, CEO of Bechtle AG.
Bechtle AG will be publishing its full, audited financial statements for the 2017 fiscal year on Friday, 16 March 2018.
In Tangible Benefit Ltd., Bechtle AG has acquired a lucrative value-added reseller in the United Kingdom. Founded in 1997, the London-based company has an excellent reputation and it is a well-known name in the industry.
Manon Smulders has been working for ARP in the Netherlands since 2008. She switched to the Bechtle e-commerce International Business Unit as an international business management development manager in 2017. Her focus is on the support of our international team in the increasingly complex IT world.
Full throttle growth. Lenovo is bigger and more diverse than ever, not only thanks to consistently strong growth, but also through the successful completion of two acquisitions in the last business year.
Dr Thomas Olemotz on the meaning of the new Vision, what it consists of and the future of the company. The CEO is convinced that the new blueprint for the future will bring orientation and drive in our high-paced era.
It’s our formula for success. Company visions don’t generally define a target margin. But since when has Bechtle followed the crowd? A 5% EBT margin provides security, as it allows us to freely shape and invest in our future.
