   * Based on a comparable scope of consolidation and constant exchange rates.

Assystem's consolidated revenue rose by 12.4% in 2018, breaking down as 6.8% in like-for-like growth, a 7.1% increase due to changes in the scope of consolidation and a 1.5% negative currency effect.

Revenue growth for the fourth quarter came in at 18.9% (13.0% in like-for-like growth, a 6.9% favourable impact from changes in the scope of consolidation and a 1.0% negative currency effect), continuing the steep upward trajectory seen in the third quarter. As expected, overall like-for-like revenue growth for the second half of 2018 was very robust (representing 12.9% compared with second-half 2017).

ENERGY & INFRASTRUCTURE

Revenue generated by the Energy & Infrastructure division advanced 14.7% to €391.3 million in 2018. Like-for-like growth was 7.5%, changes in the scope of consolidation had a positive 8.3% impact and the currency effect was a negative 1.1%. In the fourth quarter, the division's revenue was up 21.7% (15.2% in like-for-like growth, a positive 7.9% from changes in the scope of consolidation and a 1.4% negative currency effect).

Revenue from Nuclear activities jumped 22.1% to €251.0 million, with 17.2% like-for-like growth, a 6.3% positive impact from changes in the scope of consolidation and a 1.4% negative currency effect. In the fourth quarter, growth came to 24.7% (21.1% like for like, 5.4% from changes in the scope of consolidation and a 1.8% negative currency effect), led by business in France, the Middle East and Turkey.

At €140.3 million, Energy Transition & Infrastructures (ET&I) revenue rose 3.3% year on year (reflecting a 7.5% like-for-like decline, an 11.4% favourable impact from changes in the scope of consolidation and a negative 0.6% currency effect). In the fourth quarter, overall growth was 16.8%, with a like-for-like increase of 4.7%. For the second half of 2018, ET&I's revenue was up 4.2% on second-half 2017 like-for-like, marking a clear upswing compared with the first half of 2018. This period-on-period improvement notably stemmed from Radicon's Building Infrastructure activities and the Life Sciences business.
STAFFING

Revenue for the Staffing division totalled €44.2 million in 2018, representing a 2.4% year-on-year increase at constant exchange rates. The division's Industry activities contributed half of its 2018 revenue figure, with their growth offsetting the downturn for Oil & Gas activities. The currency effect on Staffing's reported revenue was a negative 4.5% for the year as the majority of its revenue is generated in US dollars and currencies pegged to the US dollar. In the fourth quarter, revenue rose 2.5%, including a positive currency effect due to the upswing in the USD/EUR exchange rate in the latter part of 2018.

HEADCOUNT

Assystem had 5,608 employees at 31 December 2018, compared with 4,833 at end-December 2017.

EXPLEO GROUP

Expleo Group (formerly Assystem Technologies Groupe) - in which Assystem holds a 38.2% stake - posted revenue of €1,042.5 million for 2018, versus €673.6 million in 2017. This represents total year-on-year growth of 54.8%, breaking down as 7.7% in like-for-like growth, a 47.5% positive impact from changes in the scope of consolidation (chiefly due to the consolidation of SQS's revenue since February 2018) and a -0.5% negative currency effect.
