Thales to Be Included in CAC40 Index

Sponsored by Businesswire

The increase in EBIT margin between 2013 and 2018 reflects the Group’s
constant efforts to improve operational performance. The Group is
pursuing its transformation through the Ambition 10 strategic plan and
related performance initiatives.

This improved profitability is also a reflection of the outstanding
engagement of the employees of a global technology leader with
innovation and R&D written into its genetic code: including Gemalto, R&D
investments now exceed €3 bn, of which €1 bn is self-funded.
