Ton Hillen, CEO Heijmans:
"2017 was a transitional year, in which, with our strategy 'Focus, Discipline, Excellence', we have laid a sound foundation for further recovery. We have realised this by adjustments to the management of the organisation, the sale of business units, a more selective acquisition policy and reassessment of the tender and project portfolio. A number of projects with a considerable downward impact on the results were brought under control which has strongly reduced our risk profile. I am satisfied with the huge turnaround at Infra, from severely loss-making in previous years to a profitable operation in the year under review, and with our good position in the strongly growing housing market. We closed 2017 with a positive operating result which forms the basis to once again look to the future. In 2018, Heijmans will continue to work on continuous improvements in order to maintain the pace of our recovery. Based on today's figures and a well-stocked order book we are looking forward to 2018 with confidence."
