2016/17 fiscal year: cautionary note regarding revenue target, profitability objective confirmed

  • February 20, 2017Regulated information

Wavestone informs that it will probably not achieve its revenue target for the 2016/17 fiscal year. Improvement in the performances of Kurt Salmon's European activities* has not been as fast as expected, while growth across the rest of the Group slowed in January and February. For the record, Wavestone was targeting 46% growth in annual revenues to over €340m.

Nevertheless, Wavestone reiterates its 2016/17 objective of over €34m in operating income on ordinary activities implying a double-digit EBIT margin.

Wavestone CEO, Pascal Imbert stated, “Despite favorable market conditions and a solid order intake, revenues over the first two months of the calendar year fell short of our expectations and the return to growth for Kurt Salmon's activities* has been slower than expected. Focus in the final weeks of the fiscal year will be on optimizing the management of our performances to ensure that, as of 2017/18, we will be able to realize Wavestone's full potential ”.


Upcoming events: 2016/17 annual revenue: Thursday, April 27, 2017, after Euronext market close.
