SGS 2017 HALF YEAR RESULTS
The SGS Group performed solidly in the first semester with total revenue exceeding CHF 3.0 billion and is on track to deliver the revenue growth projected in the 2020 strategic plan. The Group grew the top line by 4.9% on a constant currency basis, of which 3.4% was organic, with the remainder being associated with recent acquisitions. On a reported basis, Group revenue increased by 5.0%.
The strong growth was mainly attributable to the non-energy related businesses and once again demonstrated the strength of the Group's well balanced portfolio.
