In recent months, we have started to see the first signs of recovery in a very weak market which has up to now been dominated by uncertainty. These include the gradual reactivation of projects which have been at a standstill as a result of the international climate, limiting our progress but not our advances in the field of the design and manufacturing of tubular solutions with high added value, reaching record sales figures year after year in Premium products.  
Over the forthcoming months, we trust that the forecasts surrounding the energy sector will be fulfilled, shaping our business project and valuing the work of our teams in order to prepare the company for the new rules of the game. In recent months, we have been announcing a change in the way of conceiving the business in a market which has changed, like us.
We foresee the near future with relative tranquility. The prospects for the oil sector look promising, correcting the imbalance accumulated over the past years. Likewise, increases in the demand for electricity and gas are expected in a context of recovery that appears to be across the board.
With it, we hope that 2018 will be the year in which the tendency changes, enabling us to show our capacity to face the most demanding challenges on the market, accompanying our customers with an innovative vision and service vocation. Because our resolution for the year is to help theirs come true.
