2019 annual results: strong growth in turnover and profits

Egis is pleased to report healthy financial results for 2019, illustrated by higher turnover and a very substantial increase in its profitability. However, the current public health crisis resulting from the Covid-19 outbreak has caused disruption in all the Group’s activities in France and around the world. In view of this, Egis is today focussing on guaranteeing the safety of its employees and the operational continuity of its essential activities.



While the crisis will inevitably affect the Group’s results for 2020, Egis’ people and management teams are already at work preparing an exit strategy and ensuring the Group’s resilience.



“In 2019 we beat the growth and profit targets that we had set ourselves thanks to excellent results in our various markets. Although the Group is today experiencing the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are taking steps to guarantee its resilience by adjusting our activities in response to new market constraints. And we are already making plans for continued growth once the crisis is over.” - Nicolas Jachiet, chairman and CEO of Egis.
