Atos Origin has been bolstered by several new UK contracts in a first half that otherwise saw it struggling.
In the first half of the year, its UK revenues slipped 2% to €528m (£355m) as organic growth slowed 4%. This was despite a 7% group revenue growth to €2.9bn (£2bn).
But the company, which recently lost two key Department of Health contracts, prided itself on new contract wins worth “nearly” £290m in the British market.
It won contracts including InterContinental hotels, Premier Inn, and distribution firm Electrocomponents, as well as from NHS Connecting For Health and NHS Blood and Transplant.
