»Digital transformation is increasingly permeating the DNA of the German economy and in turn that of our customers. This is why ever greater momentum is being given to what continues to be major investments in laying the groundwork of the future in such areas as the generational change from SAP ERP to SAP S/4HANA, broadening our cloud services, and our own transformation. Our recurring revenues are gaining ground whereby the potential that digitisation holds has not nearly been exhausted. In fact, we expect to enjoy sustained growth opportunities for many years to come«, said All for One Steeb CFO Stefan Land. »We remain committed to our forecast for the financial year 2016/17, which was further specified on 8 May 2017, and projects revenues within a range of EUR 290 million to 300 million and an EBIT of between EUR 19.0 million and 20.5 million«, added Land.
