Thierry Breton, Chairman and CEO, said: "In the third quarter, we have achieved a very strong order entry with new large deals signed in the UK, Germany and Scandinavia, despite a challenging economic environment for cyclical activities. Together with the major wins signed in the first half of 2012, this will contribute to secure our 2013 targets. We also continued to focus on the execution of our transformation and integration programs. Finally, we confirm all our 2012 objectives."

"The achievements of the last quarter confirm the strength of the Atos' specific business model implemented over the past few years, and particularly well suited to the current environment with 77 per cent recurrent revenue and a very competitive positioning on the large outsourcing and cloud opportunities."
