Philippe Lazare, Ingenico's CEO, commented: "In 2008, we delivered continued growth and a solid adjusted operating margin of 12.5%, delivering financial performance as expected. 2008 was a year of transformation for Ingenico. First, we consolidated our leadership with the successful integration of Sagem Monetel and Landi. Secondly, we launched new innovative products well received by our customers and prospects. Finally, we launched our new business approach on "beyond payment" services.
