PARIS (Reuters) - Atos ATOS.PA shares rose on Wednesday after the French technology group won a contract worth $198 million with California to work on the state's 911 emergency phone service.
Atos shares were up 1.2% in early trading, outperforming a 0.6% gain in France's benchmark CAC-40 index .FCHI.
“The contract could represent 1.5% sales growth for the group in the United States,” Invest Securities said in a note.
