Chief Executive Officer Didier Michaud-Daniel commented:

“2017 is the year of strengthening Bureau Veritas’ global transformation. We continue progressing in this journey, through our commercial development, innovation efforts and acquisition strategy. All reinforce the growth profile and resilience of the Group, and put us in a position to reach our mid-term ambition.

Solid commercial wins spurred by our 5 Growth Initiatives, stabilizing Oil & Gas, as well as upstream Metals & Minerals markets enabled us to return to organic growth in Q1 2017. All our major businesses, with the exception of Marine & Offshore, are stabilizing or on improving trends and this is expected to carry on.

Our 2017 outlook is confirmed. We anticipate a slightly positive organic growth with an adjusted operating margin at circa 16%, as well as a higher cash flow compared to 2016.”
