The group says in a statement "given the general economic and industry-specific outlook, the Amadeus FiRe Group's business prospects for the rest of this financial year still remain positive. Business in the temporary staffing areas has developed satisfactorily in the year to date. In an increasingly tight labour market, it is becoming more and more difficult to hire qualified staff."
"The group expects demand for permanent placement/recruitment and interim/project management to remain steady over the year. Due to forthcoming events, Amadeus FiRe expects that the training division will deliver a higher earnings contribution in the next three quarters than in the first quarter."
"On the basis of the current order situation and under constant economic general conditions, the Management Board of the Amadeus FiRe Group anticipates a positive result for fiscal year 2011 that will be higher than the industry average despite the planned investments in personnel in the existing branch network."
In early trading Amadeus FiRe's shares were up by +0.31% to 31.25 Euro.
