“Atea had very strong growth in revenue and profitability in the second quarter of 2016. EBITDA margin improved across all countries, as revenue grew faster than operating costs”, commented Steinar Sønsteby, CEO of Atea.
Atea expects continued growth in the IT infrastructure market, as organizations invest in new IT solutions to enhance productivity. 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.
