What does Arcadis do?
Arcadis offers advice on infrastructure, water, environment and buildings, among other things. They are also active in the design and management of various projects. Arcadis supports both companies and governments in more than 70 different countries.
A quarter of the revenue comes from the environment and another quarter from infrastructure. 15% of revenue comes from water and the remaining 35% comes from buildings. Most of the revenue comes from Europe. This is followed by a large share of revenue originating from North and South America.
Arcadis is a fairly cyclical stock: when the economy is doing well, more construction work is done. When there is an economic crisis, you see that the company results deteriorate. Therefore, it is advisable to analyse the economic situation well before you buy Arcadis shares.
Across the board, Arcadis is not an exciting stock. Even in the economic crisis of 2008, the company managed to make a profit of EUR 57 million. In the period from 2005 to 2014, the company managed to make a constant profit. Since 2015, this trend has reversed and the company has recorded several losses.
These losses were mainly due to goodwill amortization. The problems in the Middle East forced Arcadis to be more selective. They have done this to reduce the risk within the portfolio. In safer regions, such as the UK, turnover is growing.
More than 100 years ago, in 1888, the Nederlandsche Heidemaatschappij was founded. At the time, it was still an association. This association had various advisory tasks. For example, they gave advice on reclaiming uncultivated land and on constructing and maintaining forests. They were also responsible for advising on the construction and maintenance of irrigation works and soil improvement works.
In the beginning, even well after the Second World War, by far the most clients were private individuals. An example of a well-known client was King Willem III. Afterwards, schools, water boards, provincial offices and municipalities also became clients.
In 1963, they were granted the designation Royal, which meant that from then on, they were called the Koninklijke Nederlandsche Heidemaatschappij (Royal Dutch Heath Society). Later, in 1997, after the takeover of NS engineering firm Articon, the name was changed to Arcadis. This name is derived from Arcadia, which, according to Greek mythology, is the most pleasant place on earth to live.
Arcadis currently operates in more than 70 countries and has nearly 19,000 employees worldwide.
