Insite announces its year-end results and forecasts solid growth in 2001 The international e-learning and consultancy company Insite has released its financial results for the year 2000 and is forecasting a positive 2001. Insite is also taking further steps in its strategy to be the leading European consulting company offering blended solutions. For 2000, Insite reported a turnover of proforma MSEK 41,0 and a loss of MSEK 43,7. The negative result is mainly due to the rapid expansion of the company's activities.
