SES-imagotag (“the Company”) has learned of the second part of Gotham City's publication released today, which contains nothing more than a continuation of false and deliberately misleading accusations.
As with the first publication, this new part, which contains several gross inaccuracies, is designed solely to enable the short seller to profit from any potential decline in SES-imagotag's share price. SES-imagotag will publish a similarly comprehensive and detailed refutation of this second publication in the coming days.
The Company confirms that it has formally notified the French Financial Markets Authority to inform it of the numerous breaches of its regulations committed by Gotham City and has also filed today a complaint with the French National Financial Prosecutor in particular for disseminating false and misleading information.
SES-imagotag and its teams thank all shareholders for their support in the face of this attempted share price destabilization and manipulation, and the Company remains fully focused on the implementation of the Vusion ‘27 strategic plan.
As already communicated on June 28, the Company expects 2023 to be another year of growth and improved profitability. The second quarter of 2023 set a historic record with consolidated revenue reaching the €200m mark for the first time. Overall, the first half of 2023 will also be a record for the company, with top-line growth of approx. +30% in line with annual guidance, and marked by multiple customer wins in the U.S.
The Company will share its 2023 H1 Sales on July 27, 2023, and its H1 2023 Audited Results on September 11, 2023.
