Datatec posts USD2bn revenue as operation improves

Due to its improved operational execution across all its divisions, Datatec, a global ICT Solutions and services group, posted US$2 billion in revenue for the six months ending August 31st 2018. Its earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), was at US$42.6 million and underlying earnings per share were 3.6 US$ cents.
