Bouygues SA is a French diversified industrial group, with its core business being focused on construction activities through its subsidiaries Bouygues Construction (Building and Civil works), Bouygues Immobilier (Property developer) and Colas (Roads). These three divisions accounted for 78% of FY17 revenues and 48.5% of EBITDA. The other main plank of the group's business portfolio is the Telecoms business (Bouygues Telecom), which generates 39.2% of the group's EBITDA (13.2% of consolidated sales). Bouygues also owns 29% of the engineering group Alstom. Despite operating in 80 countries, Bouygues is not well diversified geographically (France - 63.8% of 2017 sales).
