Sustainable EBITDA (without extraordinary effects) increased by 9.2% to €70.4m and the EBITDA margin was 14.4% better than expected.

Revenues were €489.3m, slightly down against the same period in 2015 due to negative exchange rates.

The group’s performance was supported by strong growth of the national economies and a positive outlook for the construction markets in Dach, Poland and also in France and the UK.

The management has confirmed its expectation to achieve a low double-digit increase in EBITDA in 2016.
