The Board of Directors of Capgemini SE, chaired by Paul Hermelin, convened to review and authorize the issue of the accounts of Capgemini Group for the 1st half of 2018.
For Paul Hermelin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Capgemini Group: “Our performance during the first half of the year was marked by a very dynamic 8% growth at constant exchange rates and a further increase in our operating margin of +20 basis points, bringing us ever closer to our stated mid-term ambitions. The sector and geographic trends observed in the first quarter were borne out, with strong demand in North America and Europe, and more specifically in the Consumer Products and Retail, Manufacturing and Financial Services sectors.
Our Digital and Cloud portfolio, which now generates 45% of our revenues, is at the heart of our service offering and is successfully meeting the demands of large corporate customers. In addition, we continue to invest in innovation across our entire service portfolio and especially in artificial intelligence.
Our ability to manage complex programs calling on our wide range of expertise is recognized by the most demanding clients, as reflected in the high quality of our recent wins.
With these results, we raise our full-year revenue growth outlook and confirm our targets for operating margin and organic free cash flow.”
