Revenues for the 2016 were down, amounting to €9.98 billion (€2,1 billion in the fourth quarter), versus €11.5 billion in 2015.

Saipem has kept its guidance for 2017, with revenues estimated at approximately €10 billion, and net profit of more than €200 million.

For the full year, Saipem secured new contracts amounting to €8.4 billion, of which €1.7 billion in Q4 (€6.5 billion for the twelve months of 2015).
