In February Globo launched its GO!Enterprise - Enterprise Mobility in a Box for small and medium enterprises and signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Ingram Micro for North America.

"Management has a clear strategy for addressing the emerging enterprise mobility markets in the US, UK and Western Europe where we plan to build a leading global market position," said Non-Executive Chairman Barry Ariko.

"Overall, current trading is strong and we are confident that 2013 will be a year of significant strategic progress and profitable growth for the group."
