Devoteam (Euronext Paris: DVT) reported revenues of EUR130.8 million for the
third quarter of 2016, a 12.0% increase compared to the third quarter of 2015,
excluding changes in currency and scope.

Consolidated revenues have increased by 13.8% compared to the third quarter of
2015. This increase includes the effects of negative currency fluctuations in
certain countries amounting to 0.8%, principally in respect of the Pound
Sterling. The acquisitions of Drago and myG generated revenues of EUR3.7
million in the third quarter of 2016. The acquisitions of Q-Partners, HNCO and
Globicon, the subsidiaries consolidated with effect from July 1st 2016 into the
Group, generated revenues of EUR2.2 million in the third quarter of 2016. In
respect to the divested operations, Grimstad in Norway and Genesis in
Switzerland contributed EUR2.8 million of consolidated revenues in the third
quarter of 2015.

The SMACS offers are still driving the growth of the Group. It represented 38%
of revenue at the end of September 2016 (excluding Between, Be Team and changes
in scope) and grew 25% compared to the same period in 2015.

Analysis of Q3 2016 revenue by region

France generated revenues of EUR54.6 million in the third quarter of 2016,
representing a growth of 11.2% organically, driven by the Cloud offers and the
growth initiatives.

Northern Europe and Benelux (excluding Between) achieved revenues of EUR26.3
million at constant exchange rates and perimeter, representing a growth of
2.2%, driven primarily in Denmark and Belgium.

The Central Europe region achieved revenues of EUR12.0 million, representing an
organic decrease of 6.6%. This is primarily due to the seasonality of license
sales in the region and the slowdown in subcontracted Telecoms work within our
operations in Germany experienced in the third quarter. Conversely, the country
has improved its long-term growth drivers. In the second half of 2016, both the
number of billable employees and the utilization rate are increasing.

Rest of the world reported revenues of EUR18.8 million, growing 4.7%
organically compared to the third quarter of 2015.

Between, the broker activity in the Netherlands, pursued the rapid growth and
generated revenues of EUR19.2 million during the third quarter of 2016.

Headcount and utilization rate

As of September 30th 2016, the Group employed 4 119 people compared to 4 002
people  as of June 30th 2016. The acquisitions of Q-Partners, HNCO and Globicon
resulted in the integration of 55 people and the disposal of the Swiss entity
reduced the headcount by 20 people on July 1st 2016. When excluding the changes
in scope, the headcount rose by 82 people catching up, as previously announced,
the slight slowdown experienced in the second quarter of 2016.

The ratio of billable headcount to total headcount improved to 85.0% compared
to June 30th 2016.

On the third quarter, the Group showed a utilization rate of internal resources
excluding divestments at 85.5%, against 85.1% in the second quarter of 2016.

2016 outlook

Based on the performance of the third quarter of 2016, the revenue for the year
2016 should grow 13% compared to 2015 and should be in the high range of the
guidance released previously. The operating margin should be close to 8.5% of
the revenue.
