AMSTERDAM, Sept 1, 2017 - ( JCN Newswire ) - Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 - GTO), the world leader in digital security today announces its results for the first semester 2017.
- Revenue of EUR 1.4 billion, lower by (8%) at constant exchange rates and (7%) at historical exchange rates
- Government Programs and Machine-to-Machine acceleration in the second quarter after a slow start
- Acquisition of 3M's Identity Management Business well received by customers
- Profit from operations at EUR 93 million, with EUR 50 million of free cash flow
- EUR 425 million goodwill impairment charge as a result of deteriorated prospects for the removable SIM market
Philippe Vallee, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "In the second quarter, Gemalto's year-on-year base of comparison in the US Payment business was at its most challenging level, reflecting the on-going adjustments in US EMV demand. In addition the removable SIM business deteriorated faster than we expected. As a result, the Company's first semester results were disappointing. Looking ahead, Gemalto expects to generate year-on-year stable revenue in the second semester supported by an acceleration in its Enterprise, Government Programs and Machine-to-Machine businesses leading to the outlook announced in July. The priorities that I have set for the teams are to rapidly integrate the newly acquired Identity Management Business, successfully execute the first actions of the transition plan and focus our investments on offers that are key to our clients' digital transformation."
