Strong sales growth in 1st half of 2002: up 24.4%

In M€ 2002 First Half 2001 First Half Variation
Consolidated net sales 140,6 113,0 +24,4%

Lyon, 23 July 2002

Sustained growth trend of the activity, beyond forecast in a still slow economy

During 2002 first six months, Générale Location's net sales reached 140.6m€, a 24.4% increase (+4% on identical structure and exchange rates).

Générale Location's participations in the world of sports at events such as the World Cup of Football in Korea, Formula 1 GP in Barcelona, Monaco, Canada, were successful, and the recently acquired or managed entities were well integrated (Toulouse Convention Center, BS Vision, Package and Esprit Public, Toulouse Exhibition Center).

The second half of the year should be satisfying in term of invoicing, particularly for BS Vision and Owen Brown with around 66% of their annual net sales realized during the last six months of the year. 


International: on-going development

Net sales from international activities represent 27% of the total and confirms the Group's presence in Europe and the world.  


Prospects: sustained dynamism

Générale Location is looking into several opportunities to acquire new businesses related to the Group's different fields of activity.

The growth for the full year should follow the actual trend.


Presentation of the results for 2002 first six months and prospects during the meeting of 12 September 2002.
