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

Total revenue corresponds to the sum of operating revenue (derived from the sale of programs and services) and financial revenue (derived from investing available cash). In 2011, it amounted to €1.0 billion, an increase of 9.7% like-for-like.

2011 OPERATING REVENUE UP 9.2% LIKE-FOR-LIKE

Operating revenue for 2011 totaled €940 million, representing a like-for-like gain of 9.2%. On a reported basis, the increase was 6.2% after taking into account:

  • The 2.3% negative effect of changes in consolidation scope, corresponding to the divestment during the period of Davidson Trahaire in Australia and other non-strategic businesses.
  • The 0.7% negative net currency effect, including a positive 0.1% due to the Brazilian real and a negative 0.3% due to the Venezuelan bolivar.

Operating revenue organic growth was in line with the growth in issue volume, reflecting stable fee rates.
