Egis acquires the operations and maintenance contract for the M40 motorway, formally undertaken by Carillion LSG

In a move that continues to reinforce its worldwide leadership in highway infrastructure operation and maintenance, Egis announces the acquisition of the M40 motorway operations and maintenance contract, this transaction is expected to secure the jobs of c.95 Carillion employees.

Egis are delighted to be returning to the M40 through its newly created company Egis Road Operation M40 Ltd having undertaken the initial startup of M40 operations and maintenance contract between 1997 and 2007. The M40 motorway is one of the leading arteries to the greater northwest region and forms part of a European route E05.


DBFO-30 is a Design Build Finance and Operate contract awarded to UK Highways M40 Ltd, (formally UK Highways Plc and for which Egis was a partner in its former years) and covers the majority of the M40 motorway (J1A-J15).

J1A connects the M25 London Orbital Motorway, and Junction 15 intersects with the A46 near Warwick. The operational and maintenance project consists of 123km of 2 x 3 lane motorway, with over 300 structures on a 30yr contract until January 2027.

Core services undertaken are Network Management, Safety Inspections, Cyclical and Routine Maintenance, Accident and Emergency Response and Winter Maintenance, for which Egis looks forward to working very closely and collaboratively with UK Highways M40 Ltd, Highways England, the Emergency Services and other Stakeholders.

Egis currently plays an active part in the M25 Operations and Maintenance Joint Venture "Connect Plus Services" also as a key shareholder in the management of the concessionaire; Connect Plus, who were successful in being awarded the 30-year DBFO contract.

Similar projects compared to the M40 are active in the Republic of Ireland, where Egis has successfully been operating over the past ten years, either independently or with its partners, projects compiling of more than 470km of motorway and national roads with tolling (road charging), including the Motorway Operational Control Centre covering the network, which encompasses Ireland’s three principle motorway tunnels, one being the 4.5 km Dublin Tunnel, one of Europe’s longest urban motorway tunnels.

The above activities form part of its operations worldwide, with more than 3,000 km of roads and 59 km of tunnels used daily by more than 2,500,000 customers with various activities in more than 102 countries across the world.

Egis’s annual results 2017: consolidation and growth

In 2017, the Group’s turnover remained level as a whole and our financial results recorded an improvement.

  • Consolidated turnover slightly up on 2016, reaching €1.050 billion.

  • An unchanged turnover breakdown between Engineering (76% of sales) and Operation and Mobility Services (24%).

  • Business outside France accounts for 62% of total group activity. The group’s turnover most notably increases in the Middle East.

  • Business in France remains buoyant, up 5.5% on 2016, in particular in the Rail, Buildings, and Aviation markets. It represents 46% of our turnover in engineering.

  • Increased distributable net profit: amounting to €39.6 million, significantly higher than in 2016 (€30 million).


" Our 2017 results are fully in line with our growth targets. Egis has once again posted turnover in excess of €1 billion, with a slight year-on-year rise, and most of our indicators are also improving. In an increasingly competitive environment, we particularly welcome the significant increase in our net profit, which amounts this year to €39.6 million.

At the same time, our service offering continues to expand and diversify, allowing us to reinforce our presence along the entire value chain of projects. The digital transformation of our firm is fully underway, and BIM is now the production standard in all our operational units. I am certain that 2018 will be another year of progress for our Group."

Nicolas Jachiet, Chairman and CEO, Egis


Turnover in excess of €1 billion

In 2017, managed turnover amounted to €1.050 billion, slightly up compared to 2016.

  • Engineering posted sales of €799 million. It should be noted that for the second consecutive year, business improved in France by more than 4.1%, notably in the Rail, Buildings and Aviation markets. Business in France accounted for 46% of turnover in engineering.
  • In operation and mobility services, excluding change in reporting scope, business activity grew by 6% to record €250 million in turnover. This can mainly be attributed to healthy results from our airport operating companies due to increased air traffic in airports in Cyprus and Belgium, a marked upturn in our activities in Turkey, and the development of business on the Saclay heat network project.


Consolidation abroad and increased business in France

Activity outside France accounted for 62% of the group’s total sales. In particular, Egis’s turnover increased in the Middle East. At the same time, activity in France continued to increase for the second year running, with a rise of nearly 4.1%, in particular in the Rail, Buildings and Aviation markets.


An order intake supporting our level of business activity

Our order intake in engineering represented nearly a full year of turnover. Among the significant projects won by Egis this year feature the construction project “Housing for All” in India, the project management of the “Ruiru II” dam in Kenya, the new EPR reactors 1220 and 1221 in the United Kingdom and the LRT lines T3 and T4 in Casablanca, Morocco.


Improving net profit

Net distributable profit amounted to €39.6 million, an improvement of €9.6 million on 2016 (€30 million). In particular, our engineering business improved all of its profit indicators, thanks to efficient operating cost control and lower provision charges.


Egis continues to develop and diversify its offering

Architecture and master planning

The 160 employees of 10 Design joined the Egis group at the end of 2017. This architecture and master planning firm established in Hong Kong, but also in Edinburgh and Dubai, enhances our offering and provides a decisive boost to our expansion in South-East Asia.

Road operations

In 2017, we acquired OCACSA (Operación y Conservación de Autopistas Concesionadas), a supplier of services to road users and a concessionaire of toll motorways, with 360 employees.

With this acquisition, Egis becomes the leading independent motorway operator in Mexico, managing more than 200 km of infrastructure.

New services

Egis and Transdev created Moovia®, a new industry reference brand in parking enforcement. At the beginning of 2018, Moovia® started up a six-year contract relating to 115,000 street parking spaces in six Paris districts and around 10 other cities in France, including Bordeaux and Nice. Egis is supplying the systems and back-office operations required for parking enforcement under these contracts.

Turnkey and energy

Egis today offers a new turnkey service proposition for heating and cooling network energy projects to meet the expectations of the energy transition market, and in particular to support local communities’ energy independence. In 2017, Egis was awarded a turnkey operation for the Asnières-sur-Seine business park.


Egis, a springboard for start-ups

Egis and Icade launched Cycle Up, an innovative company specialising in the reuse of building materials. Through an online digital platform which lists materials available following a building/demolition project and their reuse solutions, firms working in the sector – project owners, architects, engineers, demolition firms and builders - can propose and source the materials they need. This new initiative promotes the ecology and energy transition.


Looking to the future

To map out its route in the midst of an increasingly concentrated competitive landscape, Egis has stepped up its efforts to pursue strong growth and aims to climb significantly up the worldwide rankings and enhance the group’s visibility.

One of our main priorities is to accelerate the digitalisation of our group to support our clients in this new technological era. In particular, we are focusing on promoting digital tools and transforming our working methods and managerial practices.

A global digital model to accelerate railway engineering projects

Egis and CEA are developing new solutions for engineering public and rail transportation. The implementation of a project management tool named “Exegis” is planned for the end of 2018. Adapted to the management of major facilities, such as the installation of a new metro line, it will be the interface between the numerous management tools that are frequently used in order to provide an overall digital model of the project.


In light of the implementation of new urban transportation (tram, metro etc.), the management of the project requires a combined observation of the numerous implementation constraints imposed by the terrain and its development, by the service goals and the functional expectations (passenger regularity, information on travellers and on the driver…), as well as by the regulatory and normative frameworks that must be observed. All these constraints represent the project requirements (see the box) that govern the project planning and management from its design to the implementation of the service.

10 DESIGN Architects joins Egis Group

On 31st October 2017, Hong Kong based architectural firm, 10 DESIGN, joined Egis to form an integrated design group with a global capability.


Egis and 10 DESIGN made the following joint statement: "Both firms are delighted to announce Egis’ investment of a majority interest in 10 DESIGN. The complimentary geographic footprints and design skills of each firm provide an incredible platform for multiskill collaboration.

Thomas Salvant, Executive Director - Buildings at Egis says: "Egis has been looking into expansion of building design activities in South East Asia for some time.  The strategic partnership with 10 DESIGN presents a great opportunity to enrich Egis’ services to include high value added architectural design."

David Pringle, CEO at 10 DESIGN, adds: “Having established a strong reputation for design in Asia and MENA, working in Europe was always 10 DESIGN’s next big step. Egis offers us a significant opportunity to do so, and the Partners at 10 DESIGN are very excited about our future collaboration.’’

How did this investment come about?

Egis initially approached 10 DESIGN seeking a strategic design partner in Asia.  As discussions about design philosophy and synergies developed, it became clear that there were greater opportunities in joining together.

How will the leadership structure change?

The current business structure which has allowed I0 DESIGN to become a successful architecture firm will be preserved. The leadership will remain unchanged and will be linked to the larger Egis Group by a board dedicated to strategic synergies.

How will the investment impact the existing clientele in Asia, in particular China?

10 DESIGN’s business will remain unchanged in China and across Asia, with our complete focus on delivering design closely with our clients.

Does this partnership imply an exclusive tender relationship for future project opportunities with other architects/engineers?

Both firms plan to maintain relationships with our respective strategic partner consultants in the various locations and to combine skills in opportunities where they are appropriate and geographically relevant.
