The SGS Group performed well in 2015 with total revenues reaching CHF 5.7 billion. This represents revenue growth of 3.6% (constant currency basis), of which 2.0% was organic and 1.6% was contributed by recent acquisitions. Trading conditions remained difficult during the year with the fall in commodity prices, primarily impacting Oil, Gas & Chemicals, Minerals and Industrial Services.
Achieving growth during this challenging year underlines the strength of the Group’s strategy and the depth and balance of its portfolio. Adjusted EBITDA reached CHF 1,191 million, up 3.4% at constant currency versus prior year. Adjusted operating income was CHF 917 million, resulting in a stable margin versus prior year at 16.1%.
