The Board of Directors of Prysmian S.p.A. has approved the Group's consolidated results for the first half of 2014.
"The results of the first half of 2014 include the financial impact of the problems encountered in the execution of the Western Link project and the effects of exchange rate trends" explains CEO Valerio Battista. "Excluding these two major factors, it is important to note the recovery in volumes and slight improvement in profitability since the start of the year, albeit less visible than in the first quarter. With regard to the Western Link project, I am pleased to report that the extensive and rigorous testing performed to ensure the perfect execution of such an important project has been successfully completed on the submarine cables and now allows us to have a realistic view of the overall impact on the project’s profitability. The power transmission business has continued to grow and, thanks to intensive tendering and continuous customer confidence, our Group's order book has reached a record €3 billion."
