The Board of Directors of FINCANTIERI S.p.A. ("Fincantieri" or the "Company"), chaired by Giampiero Massolo, has examined and approved the interim financial information at March 31, 2019 .
During the Board meeting Giuseppe Bono, Fincantieri's Chief Executive Officer, said: “The results of the first quarter 2019 strengthen our role as a leader company, capable of quickly transforming the soft backlog into firm orders. This strength gives us a key role in the Country, thanks to the long term contribution that we are able to provide, as testified by the growing trust shown by our clients. The orders for the 11 cruise vessels signed in these three months translate into almost 27 billion euro generated to the benefit of the territories where we are located: this figure speaks for itself.
I would also like to recall the strategic initiatives that we are carrying on with determination, both in the naval business area and in the development of an in-house center of excellence in engineering and information technology services. Furthermore, we are keeping up with our diversification efforts consistently with our engineering capabilities: I’d like to mention the cooperation agreement that we signed with Eni, CDP and Terna, featuring highly innovative content and particularly important from an industrial standpoint”.
Bono concluded: “This is the first glimpse of a challenging year ahead of us, which will allow us to show our excellent production and system integration capabilities”.
