ANALYSIS
In the first quarter of 2021, the Group achieved organic growth of +17.0% against a budget of 13%, and profitability of 13.7% against a budget of 13%.

This outperformance includes all the Group’s entities.

Added to this is the maintenance of our backlog at the same level as on 31 December 2020, while this backlog always historically experiences a slight drop in the first quarter of each year.

Regarding the R&D initiative managed by the GRC entity, it is now underway thanks to an extremely ambitious recruitment plan in Maidenhead.

The constraints caused by the health issues have been managed remarkably by the local directors who have adapted to the context of each country without any negative impact on our business.

OUTLOOK 2021-2024
The Group not only confirms its 2021 objectives, but remains extremely confident in the 2024 business plan presented at the last financial analysts’meeting.
