ENERGY & INFRASTRUCTURE
Revenue generated by the Energy & Infrastructure division advanced 18.8% in the first quarter of 2019 to €112.2 million (from €94.5 million in first-quarter 2018). Like-for-like growth was 18.3% and the currency effect was a positive 0.5%.
Revenue from Nuclear activities jumped 25.7% to €76.1 million (from €60.6 million in first-quarter 2018), with 25.3% like-for-like growth and a 0.4% positive currency effect. This continuous strong showing was led by demand for engineering services from key clients, with an acceleration in the Middle East where year-on-year growth came to €8.4 million.
Revenue for Energy Transition & Infrastructures rose 6.5% to €36.1 million (from €33.9 million in first-quarter 2018), breaking down as a 5.8% like-for-like increase and a positive 0.7% currency effect. Overall growth during the period was driven by the Life Sciences business and Building Infrastructure activities in Saudi Arabia. Assystem confirmed the ramp-up of its presence in public transport infrastructure engineering in first-quarter 2019, signing a contract with SNCF Réseau to work on the large-scale project to modernise the rail network for Paris and its suburbs – a contract that will create future growth opportunities for Assystem.
At €11.5 million, Staffing revenue was up 3.6% year on year, including a 5.2% positive currency effect. The division’s revenue weighting between Oil & Gas and Industry activities continued to be rebalanced during the period.
Assystem had 5,660 employees at 31 March 2019, compared with 5,608 at end-December 2018.
