2011 ISSUE VOLUME UP 9.7% LIKE-FOR-LIKE

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.
