ESI Group: 2015 Annual Results

Continued growth and significant improvement in profitability

  • Significant improvement in current operating profit
  • Further investment efforts and integration of acquisitions
  • Realization of the strategic vision

PARIS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 12, 2016 — ESI Group (Paris: ESI):

Alain de Rouvray, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ESI Group, comments: “The dynamics in the adoption of ESI Group's Virtual Prototyping solutions by industrial leaders was fully confirmed in 2015. This trend was amplified by the rise of the smart digital factory that is revolutionizing the innovation process and shortening delays in product manufacturing. The buoyant development of high value-added innovative engineering studies confirms ESI’s global role as a major player in this transformation. Our acquisition policy, in essential technological domains, has allowed us to expand the Group’s strategic positioning in the full manufacturing and performance value chain of industrial products. In 2015, our profitability significantly increased despite the costs of acquisitions integration. Moreover our integral virtual prototyping offer is now considerably enriched thanks to multi-physics inputs such as systems modeling that animates 3D components, continuous connection to the real world through the Internet of Things (IoT), and integrated machine learning leading to autonomous driving. In the near term, combining sales growth and the deployment of these exciting and expected synergies from our newly-acquired solutions, we anticipate a further improvement in our economic performance while strengthening our strategic partnerships.”
