ORDINA CEO STÉPAN BREEDVELD ABOUT THE RESULTS
"The year 2015 was a disappointing year in which Ordina had to adapt rapidly
to drastically changing market conditions. We closed the year with a loss,
largely due to the sharp decline in revenues from the public sector in the
Netherlands. In the fourth quarter, this decline abated on the back of our
increased focus on key accounts. Thanks to tight monitoring of working
capital, we once again closed the year free of debt. Ordina performed well in
Belgium and Luxembourg with growth in both revenue and profitability.

Our tightened strategy now includes both the adjustments of the Executive
Committee, growth initiatives and savings, as well as investments in Young
Professionals and innovation. The measures we have taken are aimed at moving
from decline to structural revenue growth. The cost-savings programme of EUR
15 million annually is on track and the cost savings will be completed as of
Q4 2016.

One of the success stories of our innovation drive was the third edition of
the Ordina Open Innovation Days. More than 500 participants from the
Netherlands and Belgium/Luxembourg showed a great deal of interest in
Ordina's new propositions. At clients' request, we now also organise a
special edition of the Innovation Days in the north of the Netherlands, with
a focus on the developments and clients in that region."
