First Half 2015
An encouraging half year, despite its challenges
Revenue: €832.9 million, +10.2%
Organic growth: -0.4%
Paris, 22 July 2015 – For the first half of 2015, Ipsos revenue stands at €832.9, up 10.2% compared to the same period in 2014. This increase is mainly due to changes in currency exchange rates, which explain on their own the increase in activity, expressed in euros. Changes in the scope of activity have had an egligible effect.
In terms of total revenue however, Ipsos' activity – at constant scope and exchange rates – slipped in the second quarter, and by 0.4% over the entire period. The volume of gross profit, however, calculated by subtracting all external costs related to the execution of contracts from the revenue, and which represents a key indicator of the company's operational performance, has remained virtually stable.
