Grontmij N.V., a listed consulting & engineering company with strong European presence, announced its results for the first quarter of 2015. Despite modest signs of recovery across Europe, Grontmij’s markets remain fragile particularly in the Netherlands. The year started out weak, especially in January and February, with an organic decline in the first quarter on total revenue of 1.7%. EBITA excluding exceptional items in Q1 2015 of € 3.4 million (Q1 2014: € 7.0 million) was impacted by lower results in the Netherlands and Denmark. On 31 March 2015 Grontmij completed the divestment of Parera, one of its French subsidiaries. Grontmij continues the divestment process of its remaining French operations, and intends to complete the French divestment process in 2015.
