Summer has arrived in Europe, even in Holland, and looking back to 2014 we really made good progress in our challenging business. The year 2014 has been a year of positive achievements across both divisions. The performance of the LPR division was above expectations. The EPS division showed a good performance in top line results, however was facing operational challenges in the first half of the year, next to challenges related to the ICT project. The outlook for 2015 is positive.
Next to our daily work many of you took up the invitation to cooperate as a team on various projects like Loop, Leadership, SharePoint, your knowledge and expertise to optimize our expertise in the pooling business. All these efforts result in a stronger leadership of Euro Pool Group.
I am happy to share some updates on specific projects who serve the interests of both EPS and LPR.
