Competitive position of VINCI Energies

Revenue held steady at VINCI Energies thanks to acquisitions, confirming its resilience, which is based on its diverse expertise, broad geographical coverage and performance-boosting managerial model.
VINCI Energies’ year-end order books point to stable revenue in 2017 on a comparable structure basis. However, acquisitions, mainly outside France, could accelerate VINCI Energies’ expansion, since consolidation of the sector has still made relatively little progress. In this context, VINCI Energies’ strong ability to integrate new business units and involve them in its managerial momentum will foster sustainable growth.
VINCI Energies will also grow as a result of its ongoing efforts to expand its solutions and services, which are geared to its customers’ needs. This momentum, supported by the group’s agile networking culture, will go hand in hand with stepped-up synergies between VINCI Energies’ operating teams and experts and with its accelerated innovation policy involving partnerships with the many stakeholders that make up its ecosystem. The Inerbiz fund’s investments in innovative startups will help drive this process.
In the near term and to a greater extent in the long term, all VINCI Energies business sectors will benefit from the digital revolution, which will accelerate the transformation of infrastructure, industrial processes and buildings and affect both their equipment and the way it is used. The expansion of the Axians brand, dedicated to information and communication technologies, is part of the move to all-digital that will more broadly shape all VINCI Energies solutions and services. Meanwhile, the energy transition will make it necessary to reconfigure energy infrastructure and carry out broad-scale thermal renovation of buildings. All these shifts will call for massive investments that will generate long-term activity for VINCI Energies business units.
