12.9% growth in revenues to €127.9m
Current operating income up sharply at +€4.6m
Levallois, 19 September 2017 – The Keyrus Board of Directors met today and finalized the consolidated accounts for the first half of 2017. These accounts have been reviewed by the Auditors.
In the first half of 2017, the Keyrus Group recorded consolidated revenues of 127.9 million euros, an increase of 12.9% as compared with the first half of 2016.
This strong increase resulted from mainly organic growth (+11.3%) driven by the two segments of activity: Large Accounts (+13.3% based on reported figures and +11.9% at constant structure and exchange rates) and Mid-Market (+11.3% based on reported figures and +9.4% at constant structure and exchange rates).
- The Current Operating Income from the Large Account segment, which stood at €2.0m, was sharply higher than in the 2016 financial year (€0.4m). This reflects an initial return on the strategic investments made in the first half of 2016 at the commercial and marketing level, and also results from the continuing policy of investing in terms of innovation and the deployment of Keyrus's overall offering internationally.
- The Current Operating Income from the Mid-Market segment was €2.5m, an increase of 24% in comparison with the first half of 2016 (€2.0m). This solid performance was in line with the previous financial year and is based, on the one hand, on growing recurring revenues achieved from the established client base, and, on the other hand, on healthy revenues from the provision of services and support contracts.
- Operating income for the first half of 2017 amounted to €4.1m as against €1.6m for the first half of 2016. It includes exceptional and non-recurring costs (€0.5m) partly linked to the renewal of certain management functions.
- The net income Group share was significantly higher, at €1.9m, and incorporates a financial result of €(0.6)m and a tax charge of €(1.6)m, as against €(0.3)m and €(1.2)m respectively in the first half of 2016.
- The net debt was €24.0m as at 30 June 2017, as against €15.3m a year earlier and €15.0m as at 31 December 2016 ; this rise is mainly due to an increased working capital requirement.
Eric Cohen, President & CEO of the Keyrus Group, comments: "We can report a good first half of the year across all our geographical areas, with a marked improvement in our operating margin.Keyrus thereby confirms its organic growth momentum and remains confident going forward in this 2017 financial year. Our Group will pursue its continuing investments in incremental innovations around its "core business" offerings: Data Intelligence, Digital Experience, and Management and Transformation Consulting. Moreover, this year, it has already started developing its portfolio of service offerings so as to incorporate disruptive innovations focused around 4 strategic themes: Artificial Intelligence, the IoT, the Blockchain, and Cybersecurity."
Keyrus will publish its revenues for the third quarter of 2017 on 8 November 2017 after the market close.
