Beyond the forecasts, a consolidated net sales showing a 14.7 % increase
Consolidated sales of the financial year ending on December 31, 1998 come to 852 million FF, (130 million€), a 14,7 % increase compared to last year (10,8 % with the same scope and exchange rate). Listed on the Second Marché of the Paris Stock Exchange since November 25, 1998, Générale Location had forecast 830 million FF.
This good performance is due to a growth, perceived in all three of the group's business segments:
- fittings/museum fittings
Indeed the mix Générale Location finds its balance between the recurrent activity generated by shows and the occurrence of special events such as the World Cup of Soccer 1998. This resulted in the signature in October by Générale Location of a contract as provider to the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.
Leader in its business segment and in strong development on foreign markets, the group Générale Location provides, thanks to its global offer system, creative answers to the requests of exhibitors and organizers : design a stand, set-up a show, organize an event, live up spaces with light, or recreate them on pictures.
Générale Location will publish its results for 1998 on March 26, 1999.
