This upward trend in Oragroup’s first quarter net income is also observed in intermediation activities (+ 35%), commissions (+ 2%). “Despite the difficult context linked to the Covid-19 pandemic, I am delighted that Oragroup’s teams are continuing their efforts to achieve a satisfactory result in the strict discipline of costs and increasingly fine and rigorous management of risks », Says the general manager.
