Distributor Exertis’ parent company DCC plc has posted its Interim Management Statement for its fiscal Q3 ending December 31st, 2014.
The firm revealed ‘good growth’ in year-on-year operating profit within tech and its other divisions, including strong sales of PCs and servers.
"Operating profit in DCC Technology, the Group’s second largest division, was ahead of the prior year, in what is the most important trading quarter for the division," DCC said in a statement.
"Revenue growth was modest reflecting the anticipated lower sales of tablets and mobile phones, although this was offset by a strong performance in PCs and servers, an improved performance in France and the impact of the CapTech acquisition."
