SPIE turns to sustainable development
A strong rebound in the second half of 2020
The time has come for SPIE to take stock of its results for the year 2020. The report points to a strong rebound in the second half of 2020.
Indeed, the tightening of health protection measures has not prevented the giant from imposing itself on the market. It also announces an organic decline in production limited to -1.4%. As a result, the Group notes a decline in EBITA margin limited to -20 basis points in the second half of 2020.
Highly resilient throughout the health crisis
