Implenia records strong results for 2016

Implenia made good use of the healthy market environment in 2016 and posted strong results for the year. EBITDA and EBIT reached new record levels. Margins were much bigger than in 2015, putting Implenia well on course to meet its announced EBIT target of CHF 140 million. The improvement in earnings was purely organic, and was due in particular to the excellent performance of our Swiss business. A successful turnaround at Business Unit Buildings had a lot do to with this. The order backlog at group level matched the previous year’s record level. Added to Implenia’s strong market position, the greater power acquired by purchasing Bilfinger Construction, and the continuing robustness of the markets, this allows the Group to feel confident about business in 2017.
