Arcadis FY Profit Down 35%; Cuts Dividend - Quick Facts

Dutch engineering and consultancy company Arcadis NV (ARCAY.PK) reported a 35 percent decrease in net income for full year 2016 on lower revenues.

Net income from operations was 91.0 million euros, down 34 percent from 137.1 million euros a year ago. Net income from operations per share fell to 1.08 euros from 1.66 euros in the prior year.

Gross revenues declined 3 percent to 3.33 billion euros from 3.42 billion euros, and net revenues decreased 5 percent to 2.47 billion euros last year. Organically, revenue declined 4 percent.

We will continue to focus on our clients to increase our backlog and revenues, reduce our cost base, improve project management, expand our Global Excellence Centers, while reducing working capital."
