Oct 18th 2013 - Edison Investment Research today published a report on Comptel entitled "Strong Cost Performance – Searching For Growth". In summary, the report says:
Comptel delivered a 6.8% operating margin and positive cash flows in Q3 despite a drop in high-margin licensing revenues. With the cost structure now aligned, even a modest recovery in growth should drive operationally geared margin expansion. With the pipeline for its core Fulfilment and Analytics products now maturing, deal flow over the upcoming quarters could drive both upgrades and share price upside.
