Computacenter suffers slow Q2

Same sales as last year

Computacenter has issued a statement saying Q2 sales have been weaker than those in the first quarter.

The company doesn't expect its revenues for the period to be any different from those it reported for Q2 2000.

The company will announce its results for the six months to 30 June on 15 August. It has said that these will be in line with original expectations.

Computacenter is briefing analysts and shareholders today about its performance.

Computacenter posted pre-tax profits of £55.6 million for the 12 months to 31 December 2000, down 26 per cent on the £75.1 million it made in 1999. But it did hit its targets. Sales for the year were up 13 per cent to £1.99 billion. Sales were £1.76 billion in 1999. ®
