Thierry Gadou, SES-imagotag Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer commented: “Following the extremely promising start to the year, we have seen the strong momentum continue into Q2. First Half Sales are up +50.5% on the previous year and up +64.9% on a Rolling 12 Month basis. With the strong momentum set to continue into the Second Half, we are reaffirming our overall Guidance of +30% Revenue Growth for the Year. We are now firmly on the strong upwards growth trajectory in accordance with our VUSION 2022 ambition.”


Global Sales were up +50.5% in H1 compared with H1 2018 with Sales in Q2 up on both Q1 and the comparable period last year. The €69.1m of Sales recorded in Q2 was a new record, ahead of the previous record of €65.5m achieved in Q4, 2018. On a Rolling 12-month basis, Sales were +64.9% up at €228.9m. Following that strong First Half performance, the Group is now well on its way to achieving its declared objective of +30% Revenue Growth for FY2019. Performance was strong across the Board. First Half 2018 had been adversely impacted by the ramping-up in production facilities in Asia which entailed short-term restrictions on the Group’s capacity to fulfill customer orders. With the new facilities now fully on stream, SES-imagotag is confident that it now has the infrastructure in place to deliver on its long-term ambitions to accelerate growth in line with the VUSION 2022 plan which targets revenues of €800m by 2022.

Order entries
 (€m) 2019 2018 %
Q1 47.3 37.2 +27.1%
Q2 76.0 100.7 -24.5%
H1 123.3 137.9 -10.6%
12-Month Rolling 236.5 234.1 +1.0%

Q2 Order Intake at €76.0m was up +61% on the previous Quarter. It was the second-best quarter ever after Q2 2018 in terms of order entries. The €100.7m in Order Entries achieved in Q2, 2018 was mainly attributable to two large contracts. The overall long-term trend also remains positive, with Orders on a Rolling 12-month basis holding the very high levels achieved in 2018. The pipeline remains encouraging with a high proportion of pilots converting into sales. The number of pilots currently underway with a range of potential new clients, across Europe, North America and Asia, gives further support to SES-imagotag’s confidence in the outlook for FY2019.
