An increase in the Group’s managed turnover

The Group’s managed turnover this year reached €1.13 billion. Most of the growth (amounting to 7.6%) can be attributed to our road operation and fixed operating equipment activities and to our building engineering activities.

Turnover in engineering, unchanged on 2017, amounted to €807 million including 30% in Rail, 25% in Buildings and 18% in Roads (excluding operation).

Business dominated by international activities

International business accounted for 63% of the Group’s total business activity. While business was slower this year in the Middle East due to the drop in oil prices, it nonetheless expanded in Europe, Asia and particularly in Latin America, specifically in Mexico thanks to the win of the Golfo Centro operating concession and the delivery of the highway’s fixed operating equipment.

In engineering, 46% of business was generated in France, the same proportion as in 2017.

Increase in the workforce

14,850 employees around the world (4,300 in France), including nearly 8,500 in engineering. A 9% increase in the workforce.

Egis improved in the ranking for 3 categories:
