The UK operation was worth £336.1m in revenues, a 4.6% growth on H1 2003. Profit before tax stood at £39.2m compared with £60.6m for the previous six months and £38.9m for the same period last year.

Revenue decline in the financial service’s sector has continued to slow, with ‘issues of regulation and compliance’ beginning to weigh heavily and ‘thereby generate IT investment’. This has led to LogicaCMG’s procurement moving from local deals up to global contracts, allowing the firm to bid for larger contracts, ‘albeit with longer lead times’.
