Accelerated growth in the third quarter: +59.3%

With €114.5 million in revenue in the third quarter of 2018, Solutions 30 has hit the symbolic milestone of €100 million in quarterly revenue for the first time. The group’s rate of growth has reached +59.5% (+17.6% like-for-like), based on comparisons with 2017.

In France, Q3 2018 revenue was €69.7 million, up +53.0% (+21.2% like-for-like). All of the group’s business units fueled this organic momentum, which was only reinforced by fully consolidating CPCP as of August 1st.

Revenue from international operations rose to €44.8 million, an increase of +70.9% (+11.4% like-for-like). This performance was mainly fostered by the strategic acquisitions made in Benelux in 2018, namely the full consolidation of Janssens Field Services (JFS) and Unit-T, which is 70% owned by Solutions 30 and 30% owned by the Belgian cable operator Telenet. This subsidiary is in the process of being integrated and will reach its nominal level in November.

Revenue for the first three quarters amounted to €291.1 million, an increase of 54.0%. Solutions 30 has a good balance of domestic (+54.1%) and international (53.8%) growth as well as organic growth (+29.8%) and acquisitions (+24.2%).

Outlook for profitable, sustainable growth confirmed

Momentum from the third quarter is carrying over into the fourth thus bolstering the group in its capability to achieve its annual goals of sustainable and profitable growth.

In the long term, the group will continue to benefit from structurally fast growing markets and to deploy its profitable model throughout Europe in order to capitalize on growth opportunities provided by the economy’s digital transformation. Pursuing targeted acquisitions is part of the group’s strategy to reach its medium-term goal of exceeding a billion euros in revenue.
