Net income from operations rose 1% to € 18.5 million. This is excluding the gain of € 7.4 million from the sale of the 50% share in ARCADIS AQUMEN Facility Management (AAFM).

On balance, gross revenues declined 4% to € 492 million. The organic growth came from the U.S. environmental market, South America and Asia. In Europe government austerity programs resulted in a decline of activities and margin pressure.

ARCADIS subsidiary RTKL wins design for large Shanghai medical complex 

361,000 m2 medical center will be largest single-phase hospital development in China
ARCADIS (EURONEXT: ARCAD), the international design, consulting, engineering and management services company, announced that its subsidiary RTKL has been selected to design the Shanghai Changzheng New Pudong Hospital. This will be the largest new hospital built in one phase in China. The 2,200-bed facility will comprise 361,000 m2  (3.9 million SF) with an estimated construction cost of RMB 2.82 billion (US $413 million). Construction is scheduled to begin later this year.
"This is a significant win for us," said ARCADIS CEO Harrie Noy. "It not only strengthens our presence in China but confirms the trend toward the globalization of healthcare, which offers broader opportunities for ARCADIS.  There is a premium on knowledgeable healthcare design in countries that have a growing consumer demand for quality service and sustainable environments. ARCADIS is responding to that demand."
RTKL was selected through an international design competition in which more than 30 architecture firms participated. According to Xingdong Zheng, the hospital's president, "RTKL's design was an exceptional response to our goal of creating a modern academic hospital that will be internationally recognized for excellence in patient care, research, and teaching. The design supports patient-centered service as well as our desire for an environmentally friendly medical center." 

ARCADIS shows excellent performance despite crisis
• Net income from operations up 6% to € 74.3 million; per share to € 1.18
• Proposed dividend € 0.45 per share, same as last year 
• Gross revenues increased 3% to € 1.8 billion, organic decline was 6% resulting from crisis
• Malcolm Pirnie contributes well and offers numerous synergy opportunities
• Margin at 10.2% above target level of 10% thanks to cost saving measures
• Growth infrastructure softens, recovery begins in environment, buildings bottoming out 
March 8, 2010 – ARCADIS (EURONEXT: ARCAD), the international design, consulting, engineering and management services company, in 2009 again showed an excellent performance despite the crisis. Net income from operations rose 6% to € 74.3 million. Per share this is € 1.18 against € 1.16 in 2008. Gross revenues rose 3% to € 1.8 billion, partly due to the merger with Malcolm Pirnie. Although gross revenues declined organically by 6%, the margin was maintained above the target of 10%. Government investments kept the infrastructure market at a good level, with growth softening due to pressure in municipal markets. In the environmental market the margin target was reached despite an organic revenue decline caused by reduced private client spending. The crisis was felt most in the buildings market, especially commercial properties, resulting in a strong revenue decline and lower margins. Order intake in the second half of the year indicates a gradual recovery in the environmental market and a bottoming out in buildings. Effective working capital management pushed cash flow from operating activities up to € 152 million.
It is proposed to keep the cash dividend unchanged at € 0.45 per share. This represents a pay-out of 40% of net income from operations with 10% more shares outstanding. 
Through the merger in early July 2009 with Malcolm Pirnie (1,700 employees, gross revenue $392 million), active in water and environment, a top 10 position was reached in the United States and in the global water market. At year-end 2009, Bohemiaplan was acquired (70 employees, gross revenue € 3.5 million) strengthening infrastructure in the Czech Republic. 

ARCADIS improves income at slightly lower revenues 
• Net income from operations increases 5% in second quarter, in first half year by 3%
• Slight decline in gross revenues in second quarter despite positive currency effect
• Organic growth in infrastructure partially offsets decline in environment and buildings 
• Margin maintained at a good level; cash flow is high
• Merger with Malcolm Pirnie creates a top position in the international water market
• Recession may lead to a slight decline in net income from operations for full year 2009 
ARCADIS (EURONEXT: ARCAD), the international consulting, design, planning, engineering, and management services company in the second quarter of 2009 improved its net income from operations by 5% to      € 17.1 million. This good result was achieved because of strong margin performance, despite slightly lower revenues. Gross revenues declined 3% to € 415 million, with a positive currency effect of 4% due to a stronger U.S. dollar. 
In the first half year of 2009, gross revenues increased 1% to € 833 million, helped by a positive currency effect of 4%. The recession mainly impacted the business lines buildings and environment, where revenues declined organically. This was partially offset by organic growth in infrastructure of 10%. On balance, the organic decline in net revenues was limited to 3%. Net income from operations rose 3% to € 32.6 million, despite restructuring charges of more than € 5 million, which were taken to adjust the organization to the decline in demand. At 9.8%, the margin was almost at the same level as last year. As a result of solid working capital management, cash flow was high. 
In early July, the merger with Malcolm Pirnie was closed, a leading U.S.-based consulting and engineering company in the water and environmental markets with more than 1700 employees and gross revenues of $392 million. This gives ARCADIS a leading position in the rapidly growing global water market while we enter the top 10 in our industry in the U.S. with a more balanced services and clients portfolio. 
CEO Harrie Noy said: "We anticipated early on the increasingly difficult market conditions by adjusting our capacity, implementing strict cost controls and focusing on clients. As a result our margin was maintained at a good level and revenue decline was limited. The infrastructure market appears best poised against the recession due to government investments. The environmental market declined as industrial clients limit spending, but here we are expanding our market share. The buildings market is under strong pressure with challenging market conditions, particularly in England. The merger with Malcolm Pirnie is a major strategic step for ARCADIS from which we expect significant business and operational synergies."
