“Net financial debt pre-IFRS 16 lease liabilities at June 30, 2020 amounted to €901 million, recording an increase of €429 million with respect to December 31, 2019 (€472 million), largely due to the fact that a number of projects acquired in 2019 had achieved fully operational status, and also to the slowdown of projects due to the effects of the pandemic and the postponement of some activities agreed upon with the clients. Net debt inclusive of IFRS 16 lease liabilities (€459 million) amounted to €1,360 million,” the company’s report reads.
