Frédéric Sanchez, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Fives:

””

In 2019, as a result of the Group's reorganization around three major activities, we became a more agile organization. Our improved financial results demonstrate the effectiveness of the measures taken in 2018 to pursue sustainable and profitable growth.

The dynamic pace of our innovations, particularly towards digital and environmental efficiency, along with developing the Group’s talent, enables us to continue to prepare for the future in an increasingly complex and unpredictable environment; the COVID-19 crisis was a reminder of this.
