well-established position as a major player in the information and
communications technology ('ICT') sector the Group is now broadening the base of
its operations by building fast-growing businesses serving the banking and
finance, accountancy, human resources, engineering and pharmaceuticals, energy
and job board 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
