Business outlook for the current year

2015 consolidated an ongoing growth trend despite a complex scenario in the Group’s reference markets, characterized by numerous macro-economic and political uncertainty issues described in the previous pages.

The Salini Impregilo Group faces 2016 with an excellent order book, both in terms of quantity and quality, and on the strength of its confirmed leadership in the water sector and its ability to successfully complete particularly complex infrastructure works. These factors, combined with its balanced asset and financial structure, are important growth and development factors.

Additionally, the acquisition of Lane confirms the Group’s business model, as it represents a new basis for development in more stable territories and contributing to the growth in markets with a lower risk profile.

The above will set the foundations for the development of the new 2016-2019 Business Plan, which shall be presented in the near future and will be characterized by a shift towards lower a risk profile for operations, with a long-term strategic vision aimed at increasingly diversified geographical presence in more stable markets and the optimization of margins and cashflows.
