In the fourth quarter of 2010, Ingenico (Euronext : FR0000125346 - NG) generated a notable strong dynamism in its major markets, particularly thanks to the ramp up of its new Telium product range, resulting into a like-for-like growth of approximately 14%(1) in Q4 2010.
This exceptional commercial performance of the quarter should enable Ingenico to exceed all result targets provided on October 27, 2010.
