Ad hoc Announcement of 23 October 2014
Neckarsulm, 23.10.2014 – Bechtle AG continued to grow profitably in the third quarter of the current year. Preliminary figures show that revenue generated from July to September reached €618 million, a 10% increase compared to the previous year’s €558.9 million. Earnings before taxes in the third quarter are at around €29.5 million, up approx. 20% from the previous year (€24.7 million). As was the case in the first two quarters of the year, the increases in revenue and earnings were driven by continued customer willingness to invest in the IT System House and IT E-commerce segments, both in and outside of Germany. As expected, however, both revenue and earnings developed at a more moderate pace than in the first half-year 2014.
Bechtle AG will publish final figures in its Q3 interim report on 12 November 2014.
