Impact of Covid-19 on the 2020 financial year

Impact of Covid-19 on the 2020 financial year and 2020 Combined general Meeting

27 March 2020

The Vicat group today announces that its 2020 outlook presented on 14 February 2020 within the framework of its 2019 results publication now needs to be revised in the light of the potential impact of COVID-19 on the Group’s business.

The Group is committed above all to protecting the health of its employees, customers and suppliers.

Given the lack of visibility relating to the current environment, the volatility resulting from the situation and the potential impact of the stimulus plans already announced in a number of countries, the Group is not able at this stage to provide a precise assessment of how its markets and financial performance will develop over the full year in 2020.
