Double-digit growth across all divisions in 2022/23
The Transport & Smart Cities division (36% of 2022/23 revenues) recorded sustained annual growth of +44%. This growth is the result of the return of passengers to urban transport in all geographical areas following the end of the Covid-19 health crisis, price increases passed on to customers to compensate for the inflation in production costs, and the successful integration of EDM Technology in the United States.
Digital mobile ticketing platforms and MaaS (Mobility as a Service) offerings continued to develop in 2022/23, generating new sources of recurring revenue, albeit at a slower pace than expected.
The Traceability & Brand Protection division (33% of 2022/23 revenues) achieved growth of +44% in 2022/23, marked by sustained activities in the aviation sector. The growth of other activities in IoT Press Release - 26 july 2023 – 6.00 pm - 2 - (Internet of Things) was slowed down by economic uncertainties and difficulties encountered in supply chains within the Retail sector.
The Payment division (17% of 2022/23 revenues) recorded growth of +14% in 2022/23. This solid growth is the result of good momentum in traditional sales of gift, loyalty and payment cards, as well as RFID modules for contactless payment and AmaTech licence revenues for contactless metal payment cards. The marketing of proprietary metal payment cards began in 2022/23 and will contribute more significantly to the division's sales in 2023/24.
