Paris - June 1st, 2004

With revenues of 691 million euros in 2003 and annual growth of +4.5%, Atos Origin ranks No. 2 on the French outsourcing market, according to a survey conducted by Pierre Audoin Consultants: "The French outsourcing market—Recent Changes and Perspectives for 2002-2006." With a market share of 15 %, Atos Origin is considered by PAC to be one of the "two heavyweights" outsourcing players in France.

The strengths of Atos Origin are:

  • Strong development of its European capabilities: due to its recent merger with the Sema group, Atos Origin now enjoys a strong market position not only in France and the Netherlands, but also in the United Kingdom. The Group is very well positioned to address the major European contracts
  • Development of infrastructure outsourcing, especially in desktop management and remote management services
  • A wide spectrum of offerings: grouping together teams after the merger has enabled Atos Origin to broaden the scope of its outsourcing offerings, adding such services as consulting and expertise in the area of infrastructures.

Among the new outsourcing contracts signed in 2003 in France, Atos Origin's clients list today includes Canal+ Group, Auchan, Fnac, Heineken, Linedata Services, Redcats, SAPN…

In the European Outsourcing ranking carried out by PAC, Atos Origin is positioned number four in Europe behind IBM, EDS and T-Systems.
