Cyprus CEOs See Increase in Their Revenues

CEOs in Cyprus are more confidentabout their company’s prospects for revenue growth, according to the local findings of PwC’s 19th Annual Global CEO Survey titled “Redefining business success”.

Eighty business leaders of some of the largest organisations in Cyprusparticipated in the 5th consecutive local survey while the global survey sample consisted of a total of 1,409 CEOs in 83 countries. 

According to the local survey, even though CEOs in Cyprus share the concerns of their counterparts as regards the outlookof the global economy, the vast majority remain confidentabout their own company’s prospects for revenue growth over the next 12 months.

More specifically, 20% said they were very confident and 65% somewhatconfident, compared with 14% of the CEOs who said they are not confident. As regards the global economic growth, 49% of CEOs in Cyprus expect that it will remain the samewhile 19% anticipate that it will decline, in contrast to 33% who believe that it will improve over the next 12 months.

On a global level, CEOs are less optimistic about the future ofthe global economy compared to2015. The same applies to prospects for revenue growth, with just 35% saying they are very confident, as opposed to last year’s 39%. 

Another key factor is that 53% of Cyprus CEOs see opportunities for growth whereas CEOs globally with a percentage of 66% seemore threats than opportunities than 3 years ago.

When it comes to the threats, 76% of Cyprus CEOs are concerned about the geopolitical uncertaintyin the region, while 70% are equally concerned about the Eurozone debt crisis. The state’s response to fiscal deficit and debt burden is also a source of concern for 69% of participants in Cyprus, while an equal number of participants are concerned about the over-regulation affecting their field of activity. Furthermore, 65% of CEOs consider bribery and corruption a major threat to their companies’ future, when the corresponding figure inthe Eurozone is just 38%.

Commenting on the local survey findings, CEO of PwC, Evgenios Evgeniou said: “The confidence expressed by CEOs comes at a time ofpositive developments for the Cyprus economy, such as the return to growth, the upgrading of Cyprus’ credit ratings and the exit from the three-year bailout program, as well as the progress in doing business recorded in international reports. Even thoughthere is still a lot to be donethe survey findings affirm that our country is entering a new era. The aim of viable growth, both for the businesses that are the backbone of economic activity in Cyprus and the economy as a whole, is today more feasible and realistic than ever.”

The local findings of the 19th Annual Global CEO Survey were presented by Philippos Soseilos, Human Capital Partner, PwC Cyprus, at an event held on Tuesday, 8 March 2016. Taking part in the panel discussion that followed were John Patrick Hourican, Group Chief Executive Officer, Bank of Cyprus, Dr. Andreas Pittas, Executive Chairman, Medochemie Ltd and Constantinos Petrides, Under- Secretary to the President who has also given an extensive interview in the context of the survey.

The findings are available on the PwC website: www.pwcceosurvey.com.cy
