Robust performance recorded in Q3

Infotel posted revenue growth of 8.3% in Q3, in a market growing at an average rate of 4.2% in 2019. Both of the Group’s business lines recorded growth over the period.

Services contributed 96% of total turnover, delivering growth of 7.9% over the quarter, with record-breaking sales figures in September and a sharp uptick in recruitment. In September alone, Infotel hired 101 people overall (46 net) taking its total headcount to 2,624 at 30 September 2019.

Top-line growth continues to be driven by digitalisation and the broadening in functionalities towards greater mobility. During the quarter, the Group chalked up new clients and renewed contracts for the opening of service centres across all business sectors.
