A few minor adjustments were made to the perimeter through the sale of assets not within the scope of Sword's long-term strategy.
Consequently, 2 entities were sold to their Management:
- Kenzan, on 1 July,
- A Charteris Business Unit, on 1 August.

Their cumulated revenue, budgeted for 2015, amounted to €4.7 million. These adjustments
increase Sword's profitability.

The Group will deliver results that exceed the forecasts. Sword already plans double digit organic growth for 2016.
