The Board of Directors of Orano, meeting yesterday under the chairmanship of Philippe Varin, approved the financial statements for the period ended June 30, 2018. When asked about the results, Philippe Knoche, Chief Executive Officer, stated:
“Orano’s first half results reflect the €1 billion in new orders, particularly in Asia, and a dramatic improvement in our net cash flow, despite a still-challenging market. This confirms both the confidence of our customers and the group’s economic recovery, which should be illustrated by the return to positive net cash flow this year. These results make us confident going forward: Orano has the technology and skills to be a major player in the nuclear industry and to help to provide competitive, safe, low-carbon electricity."
