Stefano Cao, Saipem CEO, commented:
“Despite the persistence of a challenging market context, Saipem’s performance in the first nine months of 2017 was solid from both an operational and management point of view, enabling the company to confirm the guidance for 2017. The third quarter saw a downward trend in net debt, a good performance in terms of contract awards in line with the expectations announced with the half-year results, and the full achievement of objectives set by the new Fit for the Future Programme. The presentation of the new name and logo of our conceptual engineering division, “XSIGHT by Saipem”, means that the new company organisation has become fully operational, setting clear targets for improving efficiency and effectiveness”.
