Philippe Lazare, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Ingenico, commented: "The outstanding results achieved by Ingenico validate our strategy with very strong growth across all regions and business segments in the first half. In Payment Terminals, we have been leveraging the high growth in emerging countries and a changing competitive landscape. In Transaction Services, as we forecast, growth in all segments has supported our shift towards transactions and services. We have also consolidated our margins at a high level even as we invest heavily in markets and businesses that hold real long‐term promise for us, particularly in the United States. Despite the current macroeconomic environment, based on our performance in the first half, we can confirm our guidance for 2012 - higher revenue growth and profitability than in 2011.
