Company news

Investment summary

Expert System spent FY16 investing in its corporate structure post the TEMIS acquisition. While this led to a small loss in FY16, it leaves the company better positioned with a unified technology offering and offices established in the key growth markets. New business in H216 confirmed that these changes are starting to have a positive effect. In June, Expert strengthened its relationship with Sopra Steria and also announced plans to raise €10m from the issue of equity and convertible bonds.
