Quarterly evolution of revenues - Base 100

“In a market where prices are imposed upon everyone, BOURBON is focusing on what it can control: safety, fleet availability, cost control and cash preservation by a proactive policy to stack vessels if necessary” says Christian Lefèvre, Chief Executive Officer of BOURBON.The group is impacted by the market decline with less intensity and time lag. BOURBON is putting everything in place to be the first one ready for the resumption of activity when it will happen, reducing costs and anticipating the evolution of the clients’ needs vis-à-vis vessels with, as a new paradigm, the digital revolution.”
