Radiall recorded sales of €76.6 million for the third quarter of its 2016 financial year, an increase of 10.1% compared with the third quarter of the previous financial year. On a like-for-like basis, sales for the period grew to the same extent as in 2015. Growth over the third quarter benefited in particular from an excellent Telecoms business and a favourable base effect.
Sales for the first nine months of 2016 totalled €232.1 million, an increase of 7.0% compared with the same period of 2015. On a like-for-like basis, sales grew by 5.4%.
All business segments have posted growth since the start of the year with the exception of Space, with Telecoms posting the most significant growth. The Industrial sector, which benefited from the consolidation over nine months of the Van-System business compared with two months in 2015, achieved significant growth. Civil Aeronautics, the Group’s main activity, was as robust as ever and the Defence segment remained on a positive trend.
Bolstered by the healthy sales trend outside France, Radiall maintained its strong international presence, which represented 88.0% of sales at the end of September 2016.
