Computerland still smug

As a bug in a rug

Computerland's run of rosy statements to the City has continued with another upbeat report to investors.

Remember how we told you it was going to be a good year, it said in its pre-close trading update for the six months to 31 October 2006? Well, we told you so.

Or rather, "in line with the board's expectations...profit before taxation for the first six months to 31 October 2006 is expected to be significantly ahead of the corresponding period last year."

The report was attributable to growth in its managed services business. That's your lot though: you won't get any context unless you read The Register articles cited below; most notably the £15m five year contract with 02 that Computerland prised from the grasp of its Goliathine rival, Computacenter. There, we can be smug too.®
