Paris, November 9, 2017 - ATEME (ISIN: FR0011992700), the emerging leader in video delivery infrastructure, generated revenues of €11.1 million for the Third Quarter of 2017, up by 8.4% at constant exchange rates and by 4.5% on a reported basis. This deceleration relative to the first two quarters is related to the timing of a few large orders.
Revenues for the First Nine Months stood at €32.0 million, up by 25.1% on a reported basis and by 25.2% at constant exchange rates, driven notably by a robust performance in Latin America.
Revenues in the EMEA region, representing 36.5% of the group total, were virtually stable;
Revenues rose by 24% in the USA/Canada and by 28% in Asia Pacific;
Revenues in Latin America increased by 171%, thereby contributing to half of the total revenues growth year to date.
The software transition in our industry, which is transferring a portion of the addressable market to standard datacenter server manufacturers, is accelerating. As one of the earliest adopters of a software-based strategy, ATEME is one of the winners from this accelerated transition. This trend has an impact on ATEME's revenue profile since it leads to a decrease in the resale of servers, but an increase in higher-margin software revenues.
We expect revenue growth of just over 20% for the current year, and in consequence, our previous target of 30% CAGR for the period 2017-18 appears more challenging. On the other hand, the acceleration in the shift in product mix described above will have a positive impact on ATEME's margins.
Michel Artières, CEO and President of ATEME, says:
"The ongoing deployment of ATEME solutions by key content and service providers who have adopted ATEME software technology as their standard during the past two years will continue to underpin revenue growth. The commercial momentum is strong, with strong prospects with Tier 1 clients in every region, and in consequence the group expects to deliver a strong Q4. ATEME offers a differentiated software solution which is recognized by the World's largest operators. ATEME is clearly outperforming the market and we are confident in our ability to keep winning market share.”
