Thomson, IDC Enjoy Q1 Gains, Telekurs Sees Downturn for ‘03


Thomson Financial and Interactive Data Corp. (IDC) both reported revenue increases for the first quarter of 2004 in their results calls last week. But Telekurs, which announced its full-year 2003 numbers, said turnover declined.

IDC had the strongest results with an 18.2 percent rise in revenues to $117.6 million as compared with Q1 2003. Excluding the contributions of businesses acquired in 2003 and the effects of foreign exchange, organic revenue growth was 2.2 percent.
