Our previous report, published last year, called on leading entities to take a cautious approach in 2016, in particular because of the state of order books at the end of 2015.
This caution has been confirmed by a year that saw the consolidation of business by leading construction companies: a decrease in activity and a slight margin improvement, reflecting a refocus on core business activities and greater selectivity.
Our newly launched mobile news app, MazarsLive!, connects users to the most important news from inside Mazars as well as insights into the hottest topics shaping today’s business world.

At Mazars, more than ever, we believe that businesses can thrive only by creating shared value for all their stakeholders. Publishing our 2017 Yearbook is a way to take stock of what we have achieved this past year.
As a part of our 2016-2017 Annual Report, it also aims at providing a clear and global image of who we are and how we prepare the future. From open innovation to stewardship, from the future of the audit profession to our teams' perspective on the future, we have chosen to shed light from various angles on the notion of transformation.
At the end of February 2018, all the major European banks published information on the impact of the implementation of the new standard IFRS 9. IFRS 9 introduces numerous changes (classification, impairment, hedging, etc.). Their impacts at the transition date vary widely from one bank to another. They are negative in most cases, but for some banks are virtually nil or even positive. The indicators used are also variable: though the impact on the CET1 ratio is a firm common indicator, the level of further detail reported varies significantly from one institution to another.
