General presentation of Vinci :

The French group Vinci is none other than the world leader in construction, concessions and related services. However, its turnover is mainly generated by the design and construction of works in the building, civil engineering and hydraulic sectors with Vinci Construction. These activities account for 32.3% of the group's sales.

This is followed by the design, construction and maintenance of energy and telecoms infrastructures, and the construction, renovation and maintenance of transport infrastructures, which account for 28.6% of sales with Vinci Energie. Delegated infrastructure management generates 16.4% of revenue. Finally, the remaining 2.5% of sales came from property development activities.

Vinci achieves more than 59.6% of its turnover in France but also reaches the whole of Europe, Africa, North America and a few other countries.


To know the competition of the Vinci action :

The French group Vinci has specific activities in the construction and property engineering sector. In this sense, it faces little competition. However, as the market in this sector is small, these direct competitors are a real threat and are also among the large companies listed on the stock exchange. Vinci does not compete directly with the smaller companies in this sector since the projects in which it is involved are large scale and require precise means and expertise. We therefore invite you to discover these competitors here. It is therefore essential to monitor the activities of these two major groups that are direct and main competitors of the Vinci Group and in particular their responses to public tenders in this market. In fact, an increase in one of these three actions often leads to a decrease in the other two and vice versa due to the competition phenomenon.


The strategic alliances set up by the Vinci group :

The Vinci Group, through its various subsidiaries, has developed various partnerships with French and international companies over the years in order to maintain its place among the leaders in this field of activity.

Stock market data

In addition to the information you have read above, such as the activities and history of the Vinci group, it is also interesting to know some more general stock market information that you will find below, which will help you to better understand the listing of this stock:


What are the assets and advantages of the Vinci share as a stock market asset?

Vinci's first asset is of course its positioning on the international market. Indeed, the group is currently and has been for several years the world leader in the building and public works sector. It stands out in particular in the motorway and airport concession segments. It should also be noted that Vinci is marked by a very strong presence outside France, with more than 41% of its sales outside France, which is relatively rare for a French company.

The Vinci company also benefits from a reassuring long-term strategy, highlighting the complementary nature of its activities. Indeed, there is a strong complementarity between the concession activities with the Vinci Autoroutes and Vinci Aéroports subsidiaries, which together account for more than 18% of the company's sales, and the contracting activities with the Vinci Energies, Eurovia and Vinci Construction subsidiaries, which generate the remaining 82% of the company's overall sales.

It is also relatively easy for investors and shareholders to have good visibility on the future results of the Vinci company. Indeed, the company usually communicates its order book with a horizon of one year of revenue, which allows correct and precise anticipations of the evolution of sales and profits.

The Vinci group also shows a very interesting capacity for growth and development. Indeed, the company often makes acquisitions, particularly of airport concessions that enable it to increase its market share in a sector that is known to generate high margins. Thanks to this judicious acquisition strategy, Vinci is today the fifth largest international player in this sector with more than 100 million passengers a year thanks to its subsidiary Vinci Airport.

In the coming years, Vinci should also benefit from the renewal of French motorway concession contracts. The investors appreciated the fact that the company was able to negotiate advantageous financial conditions for these renewals despite negative expectations.

Vinci also won the tender for the Grand Paris project, which is about to start and should enable the company to generate significant profits in France in the coming years. This offers additional visibility to investors.

Finally, in a difficult economic context for European companies, Vinci has succeeded in significantly reducing its debt. As a result, it has been awarded an A rating by the rating agencies in 2016 and offers a high return for investors.
