ESI Group: Buoyant increase in revenue in Q1 2012/13

Financial years to January 31 (unaudited)

* Revenue excludes purchase/resale operations of €0.7 million. Revenue includes activity recorded by IC.IDO, consolidated per August 24th 2011, and Efield, consolidated per December 9th 2011

Reminder: the seasonal nature of ESI Group's Licenses sales usually results in a larger proportion of full-year revenue being recorded over the fourth quarter of the year. The first-quarter change is therefore not representative.

Revenues for the first quarter of the current financial year totalled €21.2 million, up +22.4% in actual terms (+18.5% at constant exchange rates) and +17.3% organically, compared to the first quarter of the previous year. There was significant growth in BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China), which represented 13% of orders over the quarter versus 11% over the first quarter of 2011/12. 42% of first-quarter activity was recorded in Asia, 18% in the Americas and 40% in Europe.

Licenses revenues totalled €14.4 million, up +23.9% in actual terms (+20.0% at constant exchange rates), and +19.2% organically. The high level of repeat business further increased, reaching 95.9% of Licenses revenues versus 81% for the first quarter of 2011/12. Licenses New Business jumped +24.6% thanks to the arrival of new clients and to sales of new products to existing clients, particularly in Europe and Asia.

In line with the trend observed over previous quarters, Services activity continued to grow at a fast pace, increasing by +19.4% in actual terms (+15.5% at constant exchange rates) and +13.3% organically. Services activity amounted to €6.8 million and accounted for 32% of total quarterly business, compared to 33% the previous year.
