the UK. The Group provides both permanent and contract specialist staffing
services in the UK and Europe, primarily in the information and communications
technology ('ICT') sector and, to an increasing extent, the banking and finance,
accountancy, human resources and engineering sectors. Following the
establishment of its first business, Computer Futures, in 1986, the Group
adopted a multi-brand strategy, establishing new operations to address growth
opportunities. SThree currently operates 12 brands, the 3 largest being Computer
Futures, Progressive and Huxley Associates, and has 30 offices in the UK and 9

('SME') market, which SThree defines as including autonomous divisions of large

a diverse, international client list of over 4,000 clients.
