Materna is very satisfied with the first half of 2019. In comparison to the same period in the previous year, turnover for the group has grown by 7.9 percent to 149 million Euros. Adjusted by the effects of the sale of Message Mobile GmbH on 1st April 2019, they have even achieved growth of 9.2 percent. EBIT grew at an above average rate by 34 percent to 14.7 million Euros (previous year 10.9 million Euros). The biggest drivers behind this growth are solutions for the public sector and SAP consulting services for internationally active industrial companies. Recruitment is still working well too: the Materna Group’s total number of staff has topped 2,200 for the first time, with more than 160 additional employees compared to June last year.
