|In M€ - IFRS||2015||2014||Variation|
|Total 1st half||271,9||239,1||13,7%|
Over the first six months of 2015, Montupet Group turnover came to 271.9 M€, up by 13.7% (+6.0% at constant metal and exchange rates).
In the second quarter of 2015, the Group's growth accelerated significantly, as expected, to reach +19.8% (+10.2% at constant metal and exchange rates). That is more than twice the growth in the first quarter. Without the turnover generated by the resale of tooling, which had been carried over from the first quarter to the second, the growth for the quarter comes to +15.9%.
Turnover by region :
|In M€ - IFRS||Up to June 30, 2015||Up to June 30, 2014||Variation|
|United Kingdom (sub-group)||68.3||63.6||7.4%|
Apart from favourable exchange rates, the Q2/2015 performance stems primarily from the Mexican plant, showing an increase of turnover of 101.2% thanks to the rapid ramp-up of GM programmes, as had been expected.
The Bulgarian site, for its part, continues to experience strong dynamic growth with turnover up by 28.6% over the quarter (+21.5% at constant metal and exchange rates).
On the heels of a solid first half and taking account of non cost-related items that continue to have a favourable effect, the Group confirms that it expects growth in activity and profit margins for the current year.
Furthermore, Montupet is engaged in a permanent process of improvement of the competitiveness of its sites. The rollout of the Group's productivity plans continues, with the active participation of all personnel, and with the aim of achieving the optimal distribution of loading between the Group's production sites.
By 2019, Montupet will have continued to consolidate its growth, thanks to its technological superiority, in an environment where the cylinder head will have become the key component in attaining the performance of new generation engines, meeting ever more demanding specifications.
