PARIS, Oct 24 (Reuters) - French construction and engineering group Vinci posted a 6.6 percent rise in third-quarter sales on Tuesday, helped by robust activity in concessions and a recovering French construction market.
Europe’s biggest construction and concessions company kept forecasts that revenue and earnings would rise this year.
Total revenue reached 10.670 billion euros ($12.56 billion)in the quarter, above median estimates of 10.461 billion euros in an Inquiry Financial poll for Reuters.
Excluding currency fluctuations and acquisitions or disposals, revenue rose 6 percent year-on-year, Vinci said.
