The good dynamic embarked on by the Group in 2016 is ongoing, with continued significant growth in turnover during the third quarter. The relevance of Micropole positioning on high value-added Digital and Data-based offers, as well as the very favorable gearing of our businesses over all of our markets, enables the Group to re-assert its confidence in sustainable growth.
Micropole, an international consulting and innovative technologies Group, achieved a 10.0%, increase in cumulative revenue to reach 81.5 million euros over the first 9 months of 2016. Like for like, the turnover growth stands at 10. 5%.
Turnover for the third quarter amounts to 25.1 million euros, up 7.8% in relation to the 23.2 million euros achieved over the same period last year, an increase of 8.2% like-for-like. We remind you that the 2015 figures were re-stated in compliance with IFRS 5 norms.
This new performance, buoyed by the dynamism of the business sector, is anchored in a well-directed market context. The consulting businesses, as well as the services relating to Financial Performance, Big Data and Digital Transformation continue their encouraging growth, sustained by the growing needs of corporations faced with digitalization acceleration. The stakes - notably those linked to short-term improvement of operational efficiency as well as new service creation - are high for industry actors. The Group’s expert teams are therefore being increasingly called on to achieve very high value-added assignments, on subjects notably relating to the Internet of Things and data value enhancement.
To continue its work on cutting-edge innovation subjects and to partner this very positive dynamic, Micropole is pursuing its policy of active recruitment, especially seeking Data Expert and Business Consultant profiles.
«These figures reflect the positive dynamic which the Group is experiencing. The favorable market gearing, underpinned by the precision of our positioning, enables us to assert out confidence in the sustainable continuation of this growth », commented Christian Poyau, Micropole Group CEO
Next financial date is February 23rd 2017 for the publication of 2016 turnover.
