In 2013, the Aures Group recorded a 62 % growth in turnover to¤ 52.4 m.
This was the first year that the Aures Group has exceeded 50m Euros turnover, and this was a result of both organic growth and the acquisition of the J2 group of companies in January 2013.
The integration of the J2 companies into the Aures Group was successfully managed during 2013.
All the J2 companies grew strongly in 2013, led by the American subsidiary where turnover increased by more than 35%.
Turnover of each the existing Aures companies (France, UK and Germany) was higher in the second half year compared to the same period in 2012.
The anticipated recovery in the second half year in the turnover of the Aures companies reversed the downward trend of the first half year when the group's turnover was 7.8% below the level of 2012 on a pro-forma basis. At constant exchange rates, pro-forma turnover for the Aures companies for the full year 2013 was 3% higher than 2012.
Prospects for 2014 remain difficult to forecast. There is a high level of uncertainty as to when the financial crisis in France will come to an end.
Nevertheless, the enlarged size of the group and the successful merger of our subsidiaries in the United States and England gives the Group significant advantages that greatly improve Aures's competitive position in international markets.
The Group aims to take advantage of this enhanced position and is targeting growth in 2014.
