Not bad, not bad

Computerland chairman and CEO Graham Gilbert welcomed the results and said: "Recent contract wins and the overall strength of our business lead us to be optimistic of a successful outcome for the year as a whole."

Computerland has signed a five year contract with O2 and British Sugar.

The dividend paid to shareholders increased 39 per cent to 2.5p.

Computerland PLC shares are up five per cent on the news.
