Capgemini reported a fall in sales of 3.8% to €4.2bn in the first six months of 2010, compared with the same period last year but profits increased to €101m from €78m.
The company said the results were better than expected.
Capgemini has signed significant deals in the six month period. It recently won a five-year extension of its contract with online train ticket retailer thetrainline.com worth around £15m. Royal Mail has also signed a six-year deal with Capgemini to introduce cloud computing technology to its IT infrastructure.
"We have now relaunched a dynamic recruitment policy and will focus particularly on our five global service lines, in order to satisfy the new expectations of our clients," said Paul Hermelin, CEO at Capgemini.
