GOFORE PLC COMPANY ANNOUNCEMENT 10 DECEMBER 2019 AT 9.00

Gofore Plc's Business Review 1 November–30 November 2019: Net sales EUR 6.0 million
  
Gofore’s net sales during the review period 1 November–30 November 2019 were EUR 6.0 million (2018: EUR 5.3 million). The Group had a total of 582 employees at the end of the period. 

CEO Timur Kärki comments on development: 
 
“November net sales, in proportion to the number of working days, are in line with what was already seen in October. There is continuous demand for our expertise, because we have succeeded in evolving and providing our customers with the best expertise and customer experience. Several new customer relationships began in November, with high expectations for future net sales. The month of December started off positively as well, with the inclusion of Caruna Oy's substantial agile development and maintenance framework. Customer demand for the coming year seems excellent. The company's challenge is to be able to meet this demand by increasing its own and subcontracted capacity.”

In the Business Reviews, in addition to the month's net sales, the net sales of the corresponding month in the previous year is published. The reviews also include key indicators that further facilitate transparency of the company's growth strategy and comparisons between different periods. Reporting has been supplemented with the Full Time Equivalent (FTE) figure as well as subcontracting FTEs. Additionally, in the monthly Business Reviews for the quarter ending in March and September, the company publishes the Group's EBITA and EBITA-% as well as corresponding figures for the same period in the previous year. 

The figures are unaudited.  
  
The table is updated as the year progresses.
