Trading update for the first half of 2020, including Covid-19 impact
Bunnik, the Netherlands, 2 July 2020 – The extraordinary circumstances caused by the Covid-19 crisis have a considerable impact on Royal BAM Group nv. In addition, the company’s performance in the first half year is impacted by continued losses at BAM International, the recently announced Cologne metro settlement and to a lesser extent by underperformance of the German construction and Dutch civil engineering business. Due to these developments, the company expects a first half year adjusted loss before tax of approximately €130 - €150 million. The Executive Committee has decided to start the process of winding down BAM International, active outside BAM’s European home markets, given the lack of a positive outlook.
