• Revenue at €651 million, lower by (6%) at historical exchange rates and (8%) at constant exchange rates
• Slow start for Enterprise, Machine-to-Machine and Government Programs with acceleration expected in the second semester
• In response to recent market developments, the Company has launched a transition plan expected to contribute over €50 million to profit from operations annually
• Update of 2017 outlook after the previously announced action plan review
Amsterdam, April 28, 2017 at 12:00am – Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 – GTO), the world leader in digital security today announces its revenue for the first quarter of 2017.
Philippe Vallée, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “The first quarter revenue reflects the significant volatility in our Payment business in line with the unique pattern of EMV migration in the world’s largest EMV market, the United States. In addition, the removable SIM business continues to decline while the ecosystem prepares for the next generation of devices. Consequently, Gemalto has launched a transition plan aimed at adjusting its Payment operations and Mobile business to reduced demand. For Enterprise, Government Programs and Machine-to-Machine businesses, Gemalto expects an acceleration in the second part of the year supported by solid backlogs and continues to invest in these businesses in line with their long term trends. The acquisition of the 3M Identity Management Business is on-track with all approvals received.”
