2016 results: A solid performance for our 100th year

“At the time of releasing our 2016 results, we recognize significant efforts made by everyone and the benefit the group has achieved from them.

After the deep fall in activity in the USA and in the UK during 2015, we had to restructure our activities to adapt our organization to the new geography of our markets. Whilst progressing with the implementation of our action plans, we had to face the shock of the Brexit vote in the midst of 2016 and the consequential movement in the foreign exchange rates.”

François Wanecq, Chief Executive
