Back to Press releases 1999

Net sales for the first nine months of 1999
A very satisfying growth trend, an 18.3% increase in net sales over the first nine months of the financial year

Net sales in solid growth

Consolidated net sales for the third term of 1999 at Générale Location come to FFR 207.5 millions (€31.6 millions). Over the past nine months, they registered an increase of 18.3 % from FFR 572.5millions (€87.3 millions) to FFR 677.7 millions (€103.3 millions).

With unchanged scope and exchange rate, net sales reach FFR 635.1 millions (€96.8 millions), a growth of 10.9%.


A sustained momentum toward growth

During the third term, Générale Location acquired the company F.T.B. This new acquisition came shortly after the one of PROCAP, which took place at the beginning of the fiscal year and which places Générale Location in a leading position in France when it comes to access control and database management for organizers of shows, fairs, and exhibitions.


Prestigious projects and a recurrent participation at major events

During the third term, Générale Location intervened in major scale projects such as the fittings of the American airlines Terminal at Roissy Charles de Gaulle or the installation of the Grand Prix Formula One in Malaysia and is today pursuing the following projects: the Hand-over Ceremony of Macao to China, the America's Cup or the Show Bâtimat.

Taken into account the particularly high volume of activity of the third term and based on the number of orders placed, a progression reaching beyond 10% in the group's activity for 1999 will be surely achieved.
