During the first quarter of the new financial exercise, ABEO delivered a revenue of €57.9m, up 3.4% including 3.0% of organic growth compared to prior year. The integration of BigAirBag has generated a consolidation gain of 1.3% partially offset by an unfavourable currency impact of 0.9%.
The Sports division continued its growth trajectory, with a revenue up 13.1% (+11.2% like-for-like), mainly driven by the Gymnastics business in Europe and North America, this market benefiting from the new partnership with USA Gymnastics (USAG).
The Sportainment & Climbing division first quarter shows a revenue of €13.0m being the third best quarter post covid crisis in terms of volume, a noticeable decline of 8.1% versus prior year mainly due to a challenging baseline at +61% of growth.

Lastly, Changing Rooms division reported a revenue of €16.2m, stable over the period (-1.5%) and continued to benefit from strong demand in France and Germany.
