Media release 24.04.2017
First quarter sales 2017: Very good start for order intake and sales
Sales growth is mainly due to a good performance of record France (+ 12.5 %) and record UK (+ 29.7 %).
Order intake is up 12.3 %, almost all group subsidiaries reporting satisfying growth.
The decline of the British Pound and the end of reorganisation in France will affect the first half year results.
Overall turnover growth of the Group is anticipated to be 4 ––5 % while EBITDA should grow overproportionately in 2017.
