- Revenue up sharply to €6.542bn (+10.0% compared with September 2011, +8.5% like for like)
Luc Oursel, Chief Executive Officer, offered the following comments on the Group’s performance over the first nine months of 2012:
“The recognition of AREVA’s offering quality enables us to achieve a record level of 47 billion euros in backlog as of the end of September. The sharp increase in order intake over the first nine months of the year illustrates the Group’s ability to meet the needs of customers around the world for their installed base of nuclear reactors.
The strong increase in revenue over the period is driven by recurring business in nuclear energy on the one hand and business growth in renewable energies on the other hand.
These items once again confirm the progress we have made in deploying our Action 2016 strategic plan.”
