Mazars announced revenues of €1.8 billion in its 2018/2019 financial year (1 September 2018 – 31 August 2019), up 10.4% (excluding Forex impact of +0.2%) compared to the previous financial year. The increase in revenues was supported by a strong 9.0% organic growth, complemented by a positive external growth of +1.3%
“This is the highest level of organic growth recorded by Mazars since 2011/2012. This outstanding performance comes from a combination of the high level of expertise and strong commitment of our teams to deliver our clients with a seamless experience globally, as well as a true recognition of the benefits of Mazars’ uniquely integrated partnership model. Mazars is a trusted partner of choice for organisations of all kinds, not just listed companies,” said Hervé Hélias, CEO & Chairman of Mazars Group.
Alongside Mazars’ standout financial performance, 2019 also saw the signing of the Mazars North America Alliance in July. The Mazars North America Alliance is a milestone agreement between Mazars and five leading firms in the United States and Canada – BKD, Dixon Hughes Goodman, Moss Adams, Plante Moran (U.S.) and MNP (Canada). The Mazars North America Alliance is a game changer for Mazars, allowing the firm to achieve extensive coverage in North America, and to provide its international clients with access to an additional 16,000 professionals in the region. Mazars now has 40,400 professionals serving clients around the globe (24,400 professionals in Mazars’ integrated partnership), and 318 offices across 91 countries and territories.
Commenting on the firm’s growth strategy Hervé Hélias added, “Four years ago, we set an ambitious strategic plan called Next-20. Our expansion into China to reach critical size in this vast market and the development of a strong and competitive offer in North America ranked amongst our top priorities, alongside a smooth transition in our governance with a well-planned succession of Philippe Castagnac in his role as Chairman of the Group. Today, I am very proud to say that these objectives have been met. Our goal in 2020 is to reach 2 billion euros in revenues, and I feel confident that we will achieve this”.
