The foreign exchange impact is mainly due to variations in the value of the South African Rand and GBP.
Prismaflex International Q1 figures are again positive with total sales up 7.9% at €13.68 million (+9.5% organic growth).
Excluding Home Décor, Printing activity stands at €6.46 million compared with €6.75 million in N-1, due essentially to the currency effect (UK and South Africa).
Home Décor activity is buoyant, up 29.8% at €1.43 million against €1.11 million for the same period the previous year.
Hardware sales are also up 20.1% at €5.78 million versus €4.82 million for the same period in N-1. Q1 street furniture sales stand at €2.06 million and LED display sales at €2.0 million.
On June 30, 2018, order backlog, essentially for hardware, remains high at €9.52 million including a major order for LED displays from a German client. A number of other significant orders are at the negotiation stage and should be finalised shortly.
In 2018-2019, the Group reiterates it will benefit from the dynamic commercial action put in place on the American LED display market with Anthem Displays LLC.
