“We booked profitable growth in the first quarter of 2019. Belgium/Luxembourg once again performed well in this first quarter, with a slightly higher level of expenditure due to planned investments in the recruitment and hiring of new people and the opening of two new offices. We also saw strong growth in the healthcare market in Belgium/Luxembourg, on the back of successes in the pharmaceutical industry. We also saw a continuation of healthy growth and an improved result in the Netherlands, partly due to the fact that we increasing meeting client demand with our own employees. Our Dutch operations continued to perform strongly in the public sector and the financial sector. And once again we saw that our five targeted propositions are providing an increasingly effective response to market demand. One prime example of our business proposition Intelligent data-driven organisations is the contract for the high-speed rail service Eurostar, in which Ordina will optimise the staff and maintenance planning.”
