Over the past nine months, Devoteam posted a small increase in turnover to 335 M€ and an operating margin of 5.6%. As of September 30th 2009, the Group counted 4,485 employees, versus 4,240 one year earlier.

In the 3rd quarter, turnover was up 1% to 107 M€, including a 9% contribution of acquired companies (Danet and Teligent Russia) and a 1% negative impact of exchange rates. The 5.5% operating margin was in line with its level in H1.
