Paris, 18 July 2019 - ATEME (ISIN: FR0011992700), announces revenues of €30.1m for the half year to 30 June 2019, up by 29% on a reported basis and by 24% at constant currency.

Second Quarter revenues amounted to €16.5m, up by 21% reported.

On a geographic basis, all four regions contributed to growth in the First Half:

  • EMEA revenues rose by 13% year-on-year to €9,916K;
  • The USA/Canada region recorded revenues of €10,691K, up by 26% (18% at constant currency). Revenues are set to grow further thanks to the successful roll-out of multiyear engagements with key customers;
  • Latin America and Asia Pacific delivered revenue growth of 76% and 41% respectively (66 % and 34% at constant currency). The combined revenues of €9,473K of these two regions are now approaching the level of EMEA and North America.

Looking ahead

While our product mix between hard and software sales has improved compared to the first half of 2018, the proportion of third party products, notably servers sold along with our TITAN software, remains material, thereby limiting the improvement in gross margin for the period.

At the same time, we continue to execute on our investment plan, implying that the operating margin is expected in negative territory in the First Half of 2019.

We remain focused on the execution of our growth strategy notably:

  • Developing partnerships with our flagship customers though multi-year engagements. This strategy is starting to deliver, with several contracts expected to close during the Second Half, securing our growth trajectory for 2020 and beyond;
  • Expanding to our customer base to pure OTT players, on top of our traditional base of service and content providers already deploying TITAN for both traditional and OTT delivery;
  • Launching product innovations to expand our total addressable market, with the upcoming announcement of a new generation playout solution at IBC Amsterdam in September.

ATEME Chairman and Chief Executive, Michel Artières, said: “First Half revenues were in line with our objective of 20% year on year growth. We are gratified to deliver this performance while securing more multi-year contracts. Looking ahead, the consolidation of this growing backlog, as well as a solid pipeline, make us confident in our ability to deliver a strong rebound in margins and return to profitability during the second half and for the year as a whole."
