Chairman’s Message

As we enter 2022, we are proud to see the strength of the Group, not only in terms of the quality of services and products offered, but also in terms of figures.

Indeed, 2021 saw organic growth of over 20%, which we are budgeting for 2022 at 15%.

In 2022, and for the next three years, we will continue our investment strategy:

  • Investment in people, i.e. training, development and promotion of our staff,
    Investment in our products and services in terms of R&D,
    Investment in small acquisitions to complement our offerings or our positioning.

The beginning of 2022 was marked by:

  • The disposal of our GRC activities, in agreement with the management teams, which strengthened our net cash position and therefore our investment capacity,
  • The acquisition of Ping Network Solutions, which consolidates our presence in the UK.

The 2025 business plan initially presented remains unchanged given the lead we have taken into 2021.

We will increase the number of initiatives to develop our talents.

This year we will continue to develop our CSR initiatives by including employees who want to be involved.

We renew our full confidence in our employees, customers and investors, and will continue to grow for the benefit of all of them.
