Interview with Cécile Bélanger – Vice-President Evolis – April 2014

Evolis posted sales of €13m in the first quarter, up 4% at a constant exchange rate. What were the drivers of this growth?

 

The Q1 sales increase built on the performance achieved in the 2013 financial year, marked by strategic investments and unremitting efforts to trim operating costs.
During the first quarter, the Americas recovered a certain impetus with 20% sales growth on the first quarter of 2013. As expected, this zone began to benefit from the results of the investments made in 2013. The Projects business turned in an excellent performance, primarily in North America, helped by growing interest in more intelligent, safer and decentralised print solutions.
The zone formed by Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) also recorded growth (7.6%), in contrast with the Asia-Pacific zone, down from a buoyant Q1-2013, mainly due to postponement of Projects business.

 

Do the Group's sound financial structure and diversified business lines foreshadow good prospects for 2014?

 

In view of the projects underway at all business lines, ongoing cost optimisation efforts and Evolis' strong international position, organic growth of sales is expected to reach 5 to 10% for the year. With the acquisition of cardPresso, a publisher of card customisation software, the Group will be able to take advantage of new software products in its overall print systems offer in the second quarter of 2014.
