where bam (-2.5%) are regularly involved in large projects, and the results are remarkable Heijmans (-3.4%) little error. Although turnover remained stable at 1.75 billion euros last year, EBITDA increased by at least 25%. In short, margins are on the rise.
Although material costs have risen sharply, this has been offset by rising housing prices. Thus, the real estate division is currently the most profitable activity of Heijmans.
Another difference with BAM is Heijmans’ strong capital position. While BAM’s solvency ratio remains at 14.5%, Heijmans has achieved a score of 30%. The latter can provide for its shareholders and do so. The originator proposes a dividend of 0.88 euros per share.
