- Computer services provider Computacenter said it expected its full-year revenue and profit to be 'well ahead' of current market expectations.

The company pinned the upgrade, at least in part, on an improved second-half performance in the US.

'The strong 2019 performance is coming from Computacenter's established businesses and, in the second half of the year, from the acquired business in the US which is now performing in line with our expectations following a difficult start to the year,' the company said.

Computashare said it had not seen a repeat of the negative impact that hurt performance in the second half of last year owing to contract provisions.

Those existing difficult contracts continued to perform in line with, or slightly ahead of expectations, it added.

Computacenter said that while there was still a 'significant' amount to do in December - its busiest month of the year - visibility on that month's performance was starting to improve.
