Our strategy

“2020 was an unprecedented year, in which we carried out immediate actions to protect our employees and partners while continuing to serve our customers effectively. Throughout 2020, AKKA worked hard to accelerate its transformation while strengthening its fundamentals to be better positioned than ever and emerge from the crisis with its agility restored.

We have accelerated our business repositioning with multiple initiatives to leverage our core business, diversifying our capabilities in digital across all our sectors, and in R&D with AKKA Research. On the strength of our work on getting our organisations leaner and tightly managing our cost base with a relentless focus on cash management, we are already bearing the first fruits. The profit of each and every one of our business units is back in the positive territory, while the revenue growth in Q3 and in Q4 confirm the gradual recovery of the activity.

 Looking ahead, we are also prepared for the next cycle as AKKA has also taken adequate measures to strengthen its balance sheet alongside our new strategic investor. We expect the gradual and moderate upturn to continue in H1 2021 and to accelerate in H2 2021 with good momentum in our digital activities and in most of our sectors. Our solid business fundamentals coupled with our wealth of know-how and skills, firmly positions us to capitalize on the recovery in global demand that is sure to materialize.”
