IT group Getronics issues profit warning

Troubled IT company Getronics issued a profit warning on Wednesday, saying a €25m write-off following disappointing results in the UK means the year ill close with a loss.

Getronics, which had earlier said it hoped to turn the corner in 2007, posted a loss of €145m in 2006. The company was forced to issue a profit warning last year following a book-keeping scandal in Italy. Some analysts see the company as ripe for a takeover.
