Publication of Q4 2015 revenues

Sustained growth dynamic confirmed in Q4 2015: +10.4%

2015 annual revenues up 10.7% to €1.945bn (€2bn pro forma)

Altran Group reported +10.4% growth in consolidated revenues to €520.5m in Q4
2015, versus €471.6m in Q4 2014. This performance implies organic[1]and
economic[2]growth of 3.1% and 3.0%, respectively, over the period.

implying an increase of 10.7% on the year-earlier level of €1.756bn, and
organic and economic growth performances of + 4.1% and + 3.7%, respectively.

Executive Officer Dominique Cerutti declared: "Altran's Q4 revenue
performance underscores the strong growth dynamic apparent
in our market and our capacity to capture this growth. As previously
mentioned, the situation in Germany (where recovery is underway) had a
notable impact on the Group's consolidated growth performance in 2015.
Nonetheless, Altran posted double-digit revenue growth over the period (+15%
at the consolidated level and +7.8%, organic, excluding Germany). With a pro
forma revenue base of €2bn, together with recent transformation
-contract wins, such as that signed with Nokia, which underlines the relevance
of Altran's new strategy, and an enlarged team of senior executives, the
Group is very well positioned to achieve the objectives set out in the
Altran 2020. Ignitionstrategic plan".

* Southern Europe: +14.5%
* Northern Europe: - 7.1%
