Over the third quarter 2012, organic revenue growth was 2.5%. In a difficult environment overall, the trend was positive in the Public (+2%), Insurance (+6%) and Utilities/Transport/Telecommunications (+10%) sectors. For its part, the Banking sector posted negative growth of 2%.

At September 30 2012, the book to bill ratio stood at 0.98 (1.0 at September 30, 2011) and the pipeline amounted to 2.1 times projected revenue, a level similar to that of September 30, 2011.

In the United Kingdom, third quarter revenue which was relative to a high base (+6.4% in the third quarter 2011) contracted by 1.0% on a like-for-like basis. The Public sector continued to be positively oriented (+2%) as was the Utilities/Transport/Telecommunications sector (+1%) while the Banking sector remained in decline. At September 30, 2012, the book to bill ratio amounted to 0.9, identical to its level on the same date of the previous year.

In France, the organic revenue growth for the quarter remained, at +6.1%, well above average for the market, underpinned by the Banking sector, despite a slowdown, and by the Utilities/Transport/Telecommunications sector which benefitted from a positive dynamic in Energy and the development phase of the EcoTaxe project. Over the first nine months of the year, order intake was up by 20% leading, at September 30, 2012, to a book to bill ratio of 1.2 (1.1 at September 30, 2011).

In Germany, the third quarter (+3.3%) was characterised by an improvement in the Banking sector and in Utilities/Transport/Telecommunications whose growth returned to positive territory. The Public sector, which also saw an improvement, remained however negatively oriented. At September 30, 2012, the book to bill ratio stood at 1.01 (1.24 at September 30, 2011).

In the Other Europe region, organic growth of 4.1% benefited from an improvement in the commercial dynamic in Scandinavia and a favourable base effect in Belgium, Spain having posted a 10.6% decline over the quarter.
