Christophe Dumoulin, Chairman & CEO of Business & Decision, comments: “Our strategic directions are reinforced by a dynamic market. The transition program, which began in the first half of 2016, continued during the second half of the year with the refocusing of businesses and activities and the implementation of the new governance, both in France and in subsidiaries over the world. During this year of transition, the group reached a satisfactory level of growth.”
Annual revenue by geographical area
French operations recorded revenue of €137.6m for the year, representing a growth of 4.6% compared to 2015. The slight decrease in a few operations in Ile-de-France was more than offset by the performance of operating entities in the regions.
International activities recorded annual revenue of €90.0m for 2016, presenting a decrease of 3.0% compared to 2015, following the sale of two businesses in the United States. Excluding the disposals and at constant exchange rates, revenue growth for international operations is 8.1%.
Business in the UK, after its successful launch in 2015, continues its strong growth in the domestic market.
In the United States, the sale of the two non-strategic activities was completed and reorganization of operations, in the second half of 2016, will continue in the first half of 2017.
In both French-speaking Switzerland and German-speaking Switzerland, new contracts ensure a significant increase in activity. The Benelux area is also benefiting from an important development, based on innovative offerings in the fields of Digital.
The year 2016 ended with the levels of growth expected thanks to the development of the Group's flagship activities in the fields of Data and Digital. The actions undertaken throughout this transition year have weighed on the margins for 2016. The 2016-2019 strategic plan, drawn up in 2016, will continue to be deployed in 2017 and should enable the group to reach profitability gradually.
