Edenred: Solid Increases In 2011 Issue Volume And Revenue, Both Up 9.7%

PARIS, January 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Sustained 9.7% growth in issue volume in 2011 to €15.2 billion, continuing the trend established in 2010 and in line with the Group's medium-term annual growth target of 6% to 14%, reflecting strong momentum in Latin America and modest growth in Europe.
  • Solid 9.7% rise in 2011 revenue to €1.0 billion, with:

    - Operating revenue up 9.2%, mirroring the increase in issue volume and attesting to the sales teams' dynamic performances. - Financial revenue up by a strong 15.2%, helped by higher interest rates.

  • 2011 EBIT target confirmed at €340 million to €360 million.

All growth rates are on a like-for-like basis

Issue volume for 2011 amounted to €15.2 billion, up 9.7% like-for-like. The reported increase was 9.5%, including the 0.8% positive effect of changes in consolidation scope and the 1.0% negative currency effect for the year.

Overall growth for the year reflected:

  • A modest increase in Europe (2.1% excluding the loss of the Consip contract in Italy) in an environment shaped by stable numbers of people in work.
  • Sharp 20.1% growth in Latin America , attributable to dynamic performances by the sales teams in a favorable economic environment.

Fourth-quarter trends were similar, with gains of 1.7% [2] in Europe and 19.1% in Latin America. Note that after the exceptional results obtained in the fourth quarter of 2010, Christmas sales in Mexico ("Navideños") represented an equivalent volume this year.
