Sustained Growth In Issue Volume And Revenue In Edenred First-half 2012

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 the first half of 2012, it amounted to  €511 million, an increase of 7.3% like-for-like over the prior-year period.

First-Half Operating Revenue Up 7.3% Like-For-Like

First-half 2012 operating revenue totaled €465  million, representing an increase of 7.3% like-for-like. On a reported basis, the increase was 1.9% after taking into account:

  • The 4.3% negative effect of changes in scope of consolidation, corresponding to the divestment of non-core businesses in 2011 (notably Davidson Trahaire in Australia and WorkPlace Benefits) and the decision to stop issuing BtoC gift vouchers in France as from January 1, 2012.
  • The 1.1% negative net currency effect, due mainly to the Brazilian real.

  • Operating revenue without issue volume amounted to €64 million, a slight decline for the period (down 2.1% like-for-like ). This revenue is primarily generated by corporate marketing and incentive consulting services, which are less recurring and generate lower margins than the other solutions. The second quarter was in particular impacted by the termination of non-recurring contracts in Germany recorded in second-quarter 2011.
