Q4 2017 Activity


Gross profit of €15.0m, up by 20.2%


Artefact (FR0000079683 - ALNBT - eligible for the French PEA-PME investment scheme) has published its 4th quarter 2017 gross profit.


In the fourth quarter, gross profit amounted to €15.0m, up 20.2%. Artefact activities has contributed to €3.2m to the gross profit over the period. Growth was particularly strong in France, with a gross profit of €4.9m, up by 135%. On the other Group's business locations, evolutions remain contrasted. The challenge of 2018 will be to restore sustainable dynamic growth over every country through the deployment of the new full-service offering, combining marketing, consulting and technology.


For 2017, the Group's gross profit amounted to €47.2m, up by +16.0%. This increase is mainly due to the contribution of the recent acquisitions (4Ps integrated in the Group since October 2016 and Artefact since 1 August 2017). Over the year, Artefact activities generated revenues of nearly €9.3m compared to €5.0m in 2016 (+86.5%)


Expansion in Asia


Recent months have been marked by the Group's extension on the Asia-Pacific region with the opening of subsidiaries in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Australia. If the contribution of the recent locations is not yet significant (€120k for the 4th quarter), this strategic expansion in high-potential markets is a milestone in the international deployment of the Group's expertise.


After this promising end of year, the Group is confident in its ability to generate a positive EBITDA for the full-year 2017.
