Atea’s revenue in Q2 2019 was NOK 9,487 million, an increase of 4.3% from last year. Adjusted for acquisitions, Atea’s pro forma revenue growth was 4.0%. Revenue growth was driven by strong sales of software, which increased by 18.4% from last year.
EBIT in Q2 2019 increased by 14.3% to NOK 145 million, based on higher revenue and lower operating expenses compared with last year. Profit before tax was NOK 124 million, compared with NOK 109 million last year. Net profit after tax grew by 15.6% to NOK 97 million.
“Atea increased revenue and EBIT across all markets in the second quarter of 2019. We also won several large frame agreements during the quarter. Our company is well-positioned for continued growth as a leading European reseller, system integrator and managed service provider within IT infrastructure,” commented Atea CEO Steinar Sønsteby.
Atea expects the market for IT infrastructure to continue to grow, as organizations invest in new IT solutions to enhance productivity and redefine how they provide goods and services. This adoption of new technologies is creating greater complexity for IT departments, and driving increased demand for specialist competence in IT infrastructure and system integration. This trend strongly benefits Atea, as a system integrator with expertise across multiple product platforms.
