Annual Report 2018
2018 was a challenging year for Implenia. The Group achieved another very good result at revenue and production output level. The challenges of the year were reflected in the EBITDA and EBIT figures, both of which were significantly down on 2017. The Group has well-filled order books, its markets offer attractive opportunities, and with the further development of its strategy it is ideally positioned for its current and future tasks.
Our new strategy enables us to seize the attractive long-term opportunities offered by our markets. Based on this strategy, we are adapting our organization and ensuring successful implementation with a clear multi-year plan and a strong team.
The Segment produced a very pleasing result in 2018. Various large-scale projects – especially abroad, but also in tunnelling and foundation engineering in Switzerland – contributed to this performance. In the European infrastructure business, Implenia has strengthened its market position in France.
The Segment was again able to improve its revenue. However, problems in certain individual units and projects have affected the result. As part of the further development of its strategy, the Group began to formulate and implement immediate measures to tackle the identified problems.
