Sailing by

Computerland UK sounded steady as she goes in an interim trading statement this morning.

The reseller and services group said its managed services, project services and product supply businesses had seen strong trading, and revenues and profits should be up on last year. Pre-tax profits for the six months to October 31 should be in line with the previous year, it said, excluding a one-off £100,000 cost relating to the resignation of a director. Last year it made pre-tax profits of £1.3m on turnover of £31m.

It said its hardware maintenance has seen an improved performance after a difficult first quarter, and it expected further progress in the second half.

Computerland said it remained "optimistic" of achieving a "satisfactory" outcome for the the full year.®
