Assystem’s consolidated revenue rose by 12.4% year on year in the first nine months of 2019, breaking down as 11.3% in like-for-like growth and a 1.1% positive currency effect. The lower number of business days compared with the first nine months of 2018 had an estimated 0.4% negative impact on revenue during the period.

Revenue growth in the third quarter of 2019 – which was led by Nuclear activities – came in at 9.0% (8.1% in like-for-like growth and a 0.9% favourable currency effect), following on from 20.3% in third-quarter 2018 (13.4% like for like).

ENERGY & INFRASTRUCTURE 

Revenue generated by the Energy & Infrastructure division advanced 14.4% to €324.1 million in the first nine months of 2019. Like-for-like growth was 13.8% and the currency effect was a positive 0.6%.

The division’s growth for the third quarter of 2019 totalled 10.6% (10.0% like for like), following on from the 22.2% year-on-year increase already posted for third-quarter 2018 (14.5% like for like).

Revenue from Nuclear activities jumped 21.7% to €220.5 million in the first nine months of 2019, with 21.1% like-for-like growth and a 0.6% favourable currency effect. Business in France accounted for half of the year-on-year increase and the other half derived from operations in the UK and the Middle East (including Turkey).

At €103.6 million, revenue for Energy Transition & Infrastructures (ET&I) was up 1.5% for the nine-month period, with 0.8% in like-for-like growth and a 0.7% positive currency effect. This modest year-on-year increase reflects Assystem’s selective strategy for its engineering offerings in non-nuclear sectors.
