• Datalogic in 2014:
- Revenues forecast between €600-620 million, 2011-2014 CAGR over 13%
Bologna, 27th September 2012 – The Board of Directors of Datalogic S.p.A. (Borsa Italiana S.p.A.: DAL), a company listed on the Star segment of Italy’s electronic stock market (MTA) organised and managed by Borsa Italiana SpA (“Datalogic”), a global leader in Automatic Identification and total solutions provider of bar code readers, data collection mobile computers and vision systems, today approved the Group’s 2012-2014 Business Plan.
The 2012-2014 Business Plan is a rolling plan that confirms the growth drivers of the plan approved in June 2011 and extends the time horizon to 2014. The Plan is based on strengthening the Group’s competitiveness on its reference markets – Automatic Data Capture (ADC) and Industrial Automation (IA) – as well as growth in emerging countries and an ongoing improvement in industrial efficiency and productivity. It takes into account the change in the economic environment, for which the main independent research companies within the sector forecast a slowdown in market growth in 2012 and a recovery from next year.
The main operating and financial targets for 2014 are summarised in the table below:
Mauro Sacchetto, CEO of Datalogic Group, commented: “Datalogic has approved its third consecutive business plan, setting higher growth targets for the next two years, both in terms of revenues and margins, a clear indication that it is a leading company able to look confidently to the future. Datalogic is today a different group to what it was in the past, with a business allocated according to reference market rather than product, with a new global supply chain that has integrated all operation processes, and with new operating structures. What has remained unchanged is Datalogic’s desire to innovate and grow in markets all over the world at a faster pace than its main competitors, maximising the efficiency of all its internal processes”.
