ALL TARGETS FOR 2016 WERE met OR EXCEEDED (a) Stable like-for-like and at constant exchange rates (b) Including non-current charges of €273m at Bouygues Telecom, Colas, Bouygues Construction, TF1 and Bouygues Immobilier (c) Including non-current charges of €84m at TF1, €62m at Colas, €23m at Bouygues Construction, €13m at Bouygues Immobilier and non-current income of €20m at Bouygues Telecom (of which non-current charges of €84m related to the roll-out of network sharing and non-current income of €104m related to a capital gain on the sale of towers) (d) Including a net capital gain of €189m on the sale of stakes in the highway concession companies Adelac (A41) and Atlandes (A63) (e) See reconciliation on page 10 (f) Net debt comprises an aggregate of cash and cash equivalents, overdrafts and short-term bank borrowings, non-current and current debt, and financial instruments The Group continued to improve its profitability in 2016 In line with the first nine months, the Group saw sharp growth in its full-year results, driven by Bouygues Telecom and the construction businesses. Current operating profit was 19% higher than in 2015 at €1.1 billion, with sales down 2% (stable like-for-like and at constant exchange rates). Consequently, the current operating margin rose 0.6 points year-on-year to 3.5%. Operating profit reached €947 million, up 42%, after non-current charges of €174 million (non-current charges of €287 million in all business segments, and non-current income of €113 million, essentially related to the sale of towers by Bouygues Telecom). Net profit attributable to the Group was €732 million, including the sale of stakes in the highway concession companies Adelac (A41 highway) and Atlandes (A63 highway). Restated for exceptional items (non-current charges and disposals), net profit attributable to the Group was up 29% at €632 million. All the Group's sectors of activity contributed to this achievement by meeting or exceeding their targets. Financial structure provides the Group scope for development Net debt was at €1.9 billion at end-December 2016, €695 million lower than at the end of 2015. Net gearing was 20%, a year-on-year improvement of 8 points. This decrease reflects sharp growth in the Group's cash flow, up 21% year-on-year to €2.5 billion at end-2016, the proceeds of the Alstom public share buy-back offer, asset disposals and very tight management of the working capital requirement by all the Group's business segments. Over the last few years and in all its business segments, Bouygues group has adapted its strategy and organization to changes in its markets and strengthened a culture of flexibility and efficiency that is crucial in a constantly evolving environment. As a result, the Group is well positioned to seize new opportunities. Bouygues expects to continue to improve its profitability in 2017, driven by all the business segments. (a) Free cash flow = cash flow - cost of net debt - income tax expense - net capital expenditure. It is calculated before changes in WCR The order book in the construction businesses reached a record level of €30.2 billion at end-December 2016, up 4% year-on-year (up 6% at constant exchange rates). In France, fourth-quarter figures confirmed that the construction market stabilized in 2016. The order book at end-December 2016 was up 7% year-on-year at €14.2 billion. Order intake at Bouygues Construction rose 17% in 2016 versus 2015 and included a number of major contracts such as the Port of Calais extension, Tour Alto in La Défense and the roll-out of FTTH (Fiber To The Home) networks in the Nord and Pas-de-Calais departments of northern France. Positive momentum in residential property reservations at Bouygues Immobilier continued in the fourth quarter, driven by historically low interest rates, the Pinel tax incentive and an extension of the zero-interest loan program. Property reservations were 19% higher over the full year than in 2015. The order book at Colas at end-December 2016 was up 7% year-on-year after declining for three consecutive years. On international markets, the Group continued its policy of targeted growth and saw the order book at end-2016 increase to €16.0 billion, up 2% year-on-year (up 6% at constant exchange rates). This figure included significant orders booked in the fourth quarter of 2016, such as Hinkley Point in the UK, worth €1.7 billion, and Line 3 of the Cairo metro in Egypt, worth €190 million. International orders accounted for 58% of the order book at Bouygues Construction and Colas at end-December 2016. Sales in the construction businesses were €25.0 billion in 2016, down 4% year-on-year. They were negatively impacted by an exchange rate effect of €364 million and a scope effect of €283 million following Colas' sale of its bitumen storage and sales activities in Asia to its Thai subsidiary Tipco Asphalt and the discontinuation of its refining activity in France. Like-for-like and at constant exchange rates, sales were down slightly by 1%. Current operating profit was €879 million in 2016, up €48 million year-on-year, and the current operating margin improved 0.3 points to 3.5%. Operating profit was €781 million after non-current charges of €98 million, mainly related to the discontinuation of activity of Colas' Dunkirk refinery and the implementation of new organizations at Bouygues Construction and Bouygues Immobilier. Net profit attributable to the Group was €754 million, €175 million more than in 2015. It included capital gains on the sale of stakes in the highway concession companies Adelac (A41) and Atlandes (A63). TF1 reported sales of €2,063 million in 2016, up 3% from 2015. It benefitted from the integration of Newen Studios, consolidated since 1 January 2016, while advertising sales were down slightly, by 2%, in the absence of any significant upturn in the TV advertising market. Current operating profit was €129 million, down €29 million year-on-year, and reflected the cost of screening the Euro 2016. The 2015 figure included a positive impact of €34 million related to the deconsolidation of Eurosport France. Operating profit was €45 million. It included non-current charges of €84 million related to the transformation costs and the effects of LCI's migration to freeview, as well as the impacts of both Newen Studios and the decree on French drama. Bouygues Telecom's good 2016 commercial and financial results confirm its strategic choices. The number of mobile customers continued to grow, rising by 1,105,000 over the full year and by 335,000 in the fourth quarter, for a total of 13 million customers at end-2016. Net growth in plan customers excluding MtoMa accelerated in the fourth quarter, with 228,000 new adds. With an additional 1,096,000 new mobile customers excluding MtoM since the end of 2014, Bouygues Telecom was one year ahead of schedule in achieving its objective of gaining 1 million new mobile customers excluding MtoM since end-2014. 4G penetration within Bouygues Telecom's customer base continued and now accounts for 65% of mobile customers excluding MtoM, reaching 6.9 million usersb at end-December 2016. The spread of 4G was accompanied by a sharp increase in mobile data usage, with the average monthly consumptionc by 4G retail customers at 4.2GB in December 2016, versus 2.5GB in December 2015. Bouygues Telecom continued to grow steadily in the fixed broadband market, gaining 313,000 new customers in 2016, including 98,000 in the fourth quarter, for a total of 3.1 million customers at end-December 2016. As a result, Bouygues Telecom is well positioned to meet its target of 1 million additional fixed broadband customers at end-2017 versus end-2014. FTTHd accounted for 26% of net annual growth in 2016, with 81,000 new adds for a total of 121,000 customers at end-2016. Bouygues Telecom had 482,000 very-high-speede customers at end-December 2016. Bouygues Telecom reported sales of €4,761 million, up 6% from 2015. Sales from network increased for the sixth successive quarter, rising 6% year-on-year to €4,055 million. Sales from mobile network returned to growth, increasing 5% in 2016 versus 2015, after declining 5% in 2015 versus 2014. They benefited from both a larger customer base and stabilization of mobile ARPUf. EBITDA rose €164 million to €916 million. The EBITDA margin rose to 23%, 3 points more than in 2015. Current operating profit was €149 million, a year-on-year improvement of €160 million. Operating profit was €169 million after non-current charges of €84 million, essentially related to the roll-out of network sharing with the SFR group, and a capital gain of €104 million on the sale of towers to Cellnex. Bouygues Telecom invested €1 billion gross in mobile and fixed broadband infrastructure (equivalent to €802 million net of disposals) in 2016. In 2017, it is planning to invest €1.2 billion gross, partly to maintain its leadership in 4G over the long term and prepare for the arrival of 5G, and partly to ramp up the roll-out of its FTTH network. In the mobile segment, Bouygues Telecom is continuing its network densification program with an objective of 92% 4G coverage in 2017 and 99% in 2018. In dense areas, it plans to add 50% more sites in the next four years. Bouygues Telecom is also preparing for the arrival of 5G: it successfully tested ultra high speed mobile in 2016 and will ramp up Fiber To The Antenna (FTTA) deployment in 2017. In the fixed broadband segment, Bouygues Telecom addresses growing household demand for very-high-speed broadband with 9 million premises securedg at end-December 2016 and a target of 19 million in 2019.
