During the year, the Group’s revenue increased by MDKK 524.5 to MDKK 3,165.9 (2,641.4). The increase is mainly due to the new main business units in Sweden, Norway and Finland, which became fully consolidated in 2004. Excluding the revenues from these business units, revenue increased by 6% or MDKK 93.8. Operating profit (EBIT) rose by MDKK 68.5 to MDKK 177.3 (108.8). Profit before tax (EBT) rose to MDKK 155.1 (81.6) during the year. The improved profit is mainly attributable to success in the market and significant results in Finland, Informatik and Sweden.
