Jan 23rd 2013 - Edison Investment Research today published a report on Comptel entitled "Contract Slippage Hits Q4". In summary, the report says:
Citing the slippage of a couple of licensing deals, Comptel downgraded its full-year 2012 growth expectations to 5-7%, while the operating result is expected to remain negative, versus previous guidance of 0-5% profit. Guidance for 2013 will be submitted with the FY results on 13 February, but taking a cautious stance we bring back our FY13 sales and EPS by 3% and 44% respectively.
