The current operating margin was 14.3%, up from 13.1% in first half 2016, driven mainly by Tessi documents services but also by strong performances from the Group's other two business lines:

  • Tessi documents services posted turnover of €184.4 million and current operating income of €25.2 million, up 14.8% from H1 2016, mainly driven by one-off campaigns (support for customer social security returns under the French DSN procedure) and the start-up of contracts signed in 2016 and 2017.
  • Tessi customer marketing posted turnover of €14.1 million and current operating income up 1.6% to €0.8 million.
  • CPoR Devises reported turnover of €20.9 million, down €3.4 million, and current operating income up 41.8% to €5.5 million.

After non-recurring operating expenses of €1.4 million, mainly related to the consequences of the operational and legal restructuring carried out in the wake of the Pixel transaction, operating income came to €30.1 million, up 12.3% from first half 2016.

After a net financial expense of €3.1 million, corporate income tax of €10.9 million and €0.9 million in minority interests, consolidated net income Group share came to €15.1 million.
