“CIS has extended its geographical positions in 3 new countries: the Bahamas, Malawi and more recently Senegal.”

 

“Business dynamics accelerated in the second half of 2018, with CIS winning numerous tenders against major international players.This record sales performance, in all of the Group’s geographic areas, combined with the expansion of the service offer on certain contracts, materialises the quality and competitiveness of CIS.

CIS has extended its geographical positions in 3 new countries: the Bahamas, Malawi and more recently Senegal.

CIS has finalised new alliances with key strategic partners in our historic countries and in new countries with strong development potential.

These successes, as well as the numerous ongoing consultations, confirm the relevance of the ARISE strategy, which is being implemented on the Group’s main subsidiaries.

 

The global context is now much more favorable. Oil prices and many raw materials remain at much higher levels than those recorded in 2018, and significant new investments are being made in geographic areas where we are already operating in the oil and gas and mining sectors.

In addition, the new presence of Denis Gasquet by my side as a special advisor, the future recruitment of a Deputy Chief Executive Officer, the quality, commitment and dedication of our teams at the headquarters and on sites as well as the relevance of our business model, are all strong elements to ensure the development and sustainability of CIS.

Innovating in order to offer more and more efficient and competitive solutions; to continually increase our expertise by relying on our teams, our know-how and our common values.

" Innovating in order to offer more and more efficient and competitive solutions "

Finally, I would like to thank all CIS employees around the world, our customers, our shareholders, our partners and all those who contribute to CIS success today and tomorrow.

I am very confident about the development outlook for 2019 and beyond: innovating and conquer together.”
