Computerland pleased with itself

Pats on backs

Everything's on course for a celebratory sherry at Computerland this year, according to the firm's pre-close trading statement.

Only a month ago, the firm's directors announced how pleased they were with themselves. They were all so chuffed that they've not been able to contain themselves. They're ever so pleased, they say, that since they last said they were doing ever so well, they're still doing ever so well.

Second half trading has been good because of "new contract wins and a good performance within our existing customer base". Like it's going to be attributable to anything else?

Expect more when they announce their 05/06 results on 22 June.®
