2020 Outlook

On February 20, 2020, the Group presented its outlook for 2020 when it published its full year results for 2019.

The outlook will be affected by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the Group's business segments. This impact cannot be quantified at the moment as it will depend on a number of factors, including the extent and duration of the pandemic, the prevention and support measures adopted by the governments concerned, the eligibility of employees for partial unemployment, the length of time that construction projects remain shut down, the availability of project owners, project managers, suppliers, service providers and subcontractors, as well as the scope and timing of any economic recovery plans targeted at infrastructure.

Due to these uncertainties, the Colas Group is suspending its targets until the situation is clearer.
