Amsterdam, August 31, 2018 at 12:00 AM – Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 – GTO), the world leader in digital security today announces its results for the first semester 2018.
Philippe Vallée, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Gemalto first semester results reflect the teams’ strong focus on implementing the Company’s strategic priorities.
The Company’s revenue grew organically +2%, driven by its three growing businesses in the Identity, IoT & Cybersecurity segment and as the US EMV market demand normalizes. The IoT business continued to leverage strong demand for Gemalto solutions in industrial sectors. We see good momentum in Cybersecurity, emphasizing the growing role of Gemalto’s technology in securing cloud services. In addition, the Governments business won its largest ever passport contract in the UK with Her Majesty’s Passport Office, highlighting Gemalto’s strong offering in helping governments better protect their citizens. In Smartcards & Issuance, we continue to drive the segment’s digital transformation as strong pricing discipline in removable SIM and payment cards led to a stabilizing of profit margin. We also delivered on significant milestones of our transition plan and will see their benefits in the coming quarters.
With similar trends expected in our markets in the second part of the year, our strategic priorities remain unchanged. We will continue to focus on growth opportunities in the Identity, IoT & Cybersecurity segment, leading the digital transformation and rightsizing our operations in the Smartcards & Issuance segment toward achieving our 2018 outlook.”
