Audited revenues are up 11.9% (including 8% in organic growth vs. a 2.5% increase for the market). NEURONES has increased its market share, mainly with the signature of three major big data agreements in finance.

The increase in operating profit (up 14.6%) and net profit of which group share (up 18.3%) is even more notable than the increase in revenues.

After a year punctuated by four small acquisitions (130 people), and with (industrial) investments returning to a standard level, net cash and cash equivalents (€138.6m) continue to grow.

Having exceeded 5,000 employees, NEURONES is no longer eligible for PEA PME.

As usual, forecasts for the current year will be posted along with the Group's 1st quarter revenues. They will benefit from the momentum gathered in 2016.

With over 5,000 experts, the NEURONES group specializes in Consulting (Management, Organization and Digital) and IT Services (Infrastructures and Applications). It supports its clients in their change-management projects and in the upgrading and management of their Information Systems.
