Teleperformance posts strong H2 revenue

Global outsourcing firm Teleperformance posted a 9.9% consolidated revenue rise in the first six months of the year, from a year ago, to EUR2.081bn (USD2.445bn). Growth was attributed to the EUR204m contribution from the consolidation of LanguageLine Solutions on 19 September 2016. The increase in the value of Brazilian real, Colombian peso, and the US dollar against the euro also lifted revenues, the company said. For the second quarter alone, revenue stood at EUR1.015bn, up 8% from the previous quarter. In Asia Pacific, Teleperformance’s business continued to benefit from the significant investments made in the region since 2016 and remained upbeat, particularly in India.
