Page Background

Created in 1980, Ingenico Group is now

the global leader in payment acceptance

thanks to its capacity to innovate and to

adapt all throughout its history. The year

2016 offers further proof of this: we

presented our 2020 strategic plan, clearly

affirming our ambition to become the

global leader in omnichannel payment

acceptance; we expanded and renewed

our offer, from terminals to payment

services, to support this strategic aim;

and we achieved robust results, in

line with our expectations, despite the

challenges faced on the Brazilian and

U.S. markets. Lastly, we prepared for the

future by pioneering new innovations

and by rethinking our organization to

make it resolutely customer-centric.

In 2016, our revenue totaled €2,312

million, an 8% increase on a like-for-like

basis. Our EBITDA margin was 20.6%, in a

year marked by significant investments

to launch our new terminal ranges and

associated services and to continue

the transformation of our transaction

platforms.

All regions posted excellent results,

with the exception of the Brazilian and

U.S. markets. In Europe-Africa, the pace

of growth reached 14%, thanks to our

excellent market coverage in this region

and our ability to seize opportunities

created by new technological and

regulatory developments. Asia Pacific

& Middle East recorded the strongest

regional growth, rising 25% on the

back of robust growth in China. The

other countries now represent half of

this region’s revenue. The ePayments

division grew at a significantly faster

pace at end-2016, up 11% year-on-year,

mainly owing to the success of our offer

with international merchants such as

AliExpress and

Booking.com

, as well as

the record performances of our platforms

in terms of both transaction volumes and

availability rates.

In recent years we have capitalized on

a strong growth cycle to expand our

portfolio of business activities and grow

our commercial network. Ingenico’s

profile in its sector is now unique: we

are the key player in omnichannel

payment. To reaffirm our leadership year

in and year out, we continue to invest in

innovation, particularly through Ingenico

Labs. Thanks to our new organization,

both of our global business units will

respond even better to the distinct and

specific needs of our two main types

of customers: banks and acquirers on

the one hand, and physical and online

retailers on the other.

I have full confidence in the commitment

of our management and all our

employees to pursue the Group’s growth

path in 2017 and beyond.

Philippe Lazare,

Chairman and CEO

A STRONG GROUP

WITH A UNIQUE PROFILE:

THE KEY PLAYER IN

OMNICHANNEL PAYMENT.
