This year our Group surpassed the symbolic billion euro threshold, recording €1.020 billion managed turnover in 2016, representing an annual growth rate of 9.3%.
Business activity outside France continued to rise (+13.6% in 2016), notably in the Middle East, India and Europe, and now accounts for 63% of the Group’s overall business.
Turnover generated in France has also picked up again, in particular thanks to projects relating to the Grand Paris urban development and transport programme.
In the ranking published in December 2016 by ENR (Engineering News-Record), the international benchmark guide for engineering, Egis appears in 23rd place* in the Top 150, in 8th position in the Top 20 in the “Transportation” category, also 8th in the Top 10 in the Regions category in Africa, and 3rd in the Top 5 in the “Highways” category.
(*Excluding Chinese firms (State-owned) and “Oil and gas” (percentage of business in Petroleum superior or equal to 50%).
The rise in turnover generated outside France comes as confirmation of the increasingly international profile of the Group and its activities.
63% of our turnover in 2016 was generated outside France. This geographical shift in our business is in line with our strategy to go where the growth is.
We have notably consolidated our presence in India, the Middle East and Brazil, positioning these three regions as strategic platforms for the future development of our company.
