The first half of this year has been both challenging and encouraging for DNV GL. Weaker developments in some of our main markets resulted in negative currency-adjusted growth, but our financial position remains strong. We continued to strengthen our ability to help customers improve their business performance in a safe, efficient and responsible manner. The following figures are from the 2015 half year financial report.
The merger integration post-September 2013 has progressed according to plan and is successfully nearing completion, creating synergies of scope, scale and skills. This will further strengthen our leading position in the industries we serve and enable us to better serve our customers during difficult times.
