Gauthier Louette, Chairman & CEO, declared: "SPIE delivered a strong set of results in the first half of 2019, combining strong revenue growth and solid margins. This performance illustrates the robustness of our model and the particular value of our services, which are instrumental in enabling both the energy and the digital transitions across Europe. Our French business, in particular, is reaping significant benefits from its deep transformation completed at the end of 2018. We kept expanding our footprint and developing our service portfolio with four bolt-on acquisitions perfectly in line with the Group’s strategic priorities. We are confident for the second half of the year and confirm our full-year guidance."
