"Despite the current recession in the construction sector and the uncertain political climate in Holland, which is reflected in our activities, particularly in housing construction, we performed as anticipated in the first six months of 2010", says CEO Gerard van de Aast.
"Most VolkerWessels companies succeeded in achieving results in line with expectations. While our companies operating in housing construction and railways face particularly difficult market conditions, there are also opportunities for our companies that build infrastructure, energy, water and communications networks. The spread of our activities means that we also perform relatively well in difficult times. We shall continue to focus on providing high quality, sustainable solutions for our clients. We expect slightly lower operating revenues in 2010 as a whole, with an EBITDA in line with 2009."
