Philippe Vallée, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Gemalto grew well this quarter driven by a solid increase in the Identity, IoT & Cybersecurity segment that more than offset the anticipated revenue decrease in the Smartcards & Issuance segment.

During the quarter, commercial synergies with the newly acquired Identity Management business began to kick in and resulted in milestone wins in Governments. Gemalto also announced the launch of two ground-breaking laser-personalized innovations designed to significantly increase the security of passports and IDs. The Cybersecurity business grew well in Europe in anticipation of GDPR1 implementation and more broadly as organizations increase their focus on data privacy and data security. The IoT business posted an outstanding performance, as large deployments for connected health devices, smart payment and connected cars continue to reflect the growing adoption of IoT technology in industrial applications.

In parallel, Gemalto pursued its focus on profit margin in the Smartcards & Issuance segment adjusting its cost-base and business priorities to the market dynamics.

These evolutions, in line with our expectations, are a first step resulting from the strategic choices we have made for the Company. They provide us with a solid foundation to deliver on our 2018 objectives.

On March 27, Thales launched its offer for all Gemalto shares, an offer unanimously supported by Gemalto’s Board of Directors.”
1 General Data Protection Regulation

Basis of preparation of financial information

Segment information

The Identity, IoT & Cybersecurity segment comprises businesses associated with homeland security for governments (“Governments”), IoT connectivity for industrial applications (“IoT”) and cybersecurity for enterprises (“Cybersecurity”).

The Smartcards & Issuance segment comprises businesses mainly associated with removable SIM cards (“SIM”), payment cards (“Payment”) and their issuance services. The segment includes as well businesses associated to the digital transformation of smart cards (“Digital”) such as digital payment, digital banking, remote subscription management, embedded SIM/MIM and embedded secure elements. Patents business is also included in this segment.

Historical exchange rates and constant currency figures

The Company sells its products and services in a very large number of countries and is commonly remunerated in other currencies than the Euro. Fluctuations in these other currencies exchange rates against the Euro have in particular a translation impact on the reported Euro value of the Company revenues. Comparisons at constant exchange rates aim at eliminating the effect of currencies translation movements on the analysis of the Group revenue by translating prior-year revenues at the same average exchange rate as applied in the current year. Revenue variations are at constant exchange rates and include the impact of currencies variation hedging program, except where otherwise noted. All other figures in this press release are at historical exchange rates, except where otherwise noted.

Adjusted income statement and profit from operations (PFO) non-GAAP measure

The consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and with section 2:362(9) of the Netherlands Civil Code.

To better assess its past and future performance, the Company also prepares an adjusted income statement where the key metric used to evaluate the business and make operating decisions over the period 2010 to 2018 is the profit from operations (PFO).

PFO is a non-GAAP measure defined as IFRS operating profit adjusted for (i) the amortization and impairment of intangibles resulting from acquisitions, (ii) restructuring and acquisition-related expenses, (iii) all equity-based compensation charges and associated costs; and (iv) fair value adjustments upon business acquisitions. These items are further explained as follows:

  • Amortization, and impairment of intangibles resulting from acquisitions are defined as the amortization, and impairment expenses related to intangibles assets and goodwill recognized as part of the allocation of the excess purchase consideration over the share of net assets acquired.
  • Restructuring and acquisitions-related expenses are defined as (i) restructuring expenses which are the costs incurred in connection with a restructuring as defined in accordance with the provisions of IAS 37 (e.g. sale or termination of a business, closure of a plant,…), and consequent costs; (ii) reorganization expenses defined as the costs incurred in connection with headcount reductions, consolidation of manufacturing and offices sites, as well as the rationalization and harmonization of the product and service portfolio and the integration of IT systems, consequent to a business combination; and (iii) transaction costs (such as fees paid as part of an acquisition process).
  • Equity-based compensation charges are defined as (i) the discount granted to employees acquiring Gemalto shares under Gemalto Employee Stock Purchase plans; (ii) the amortization of the fair value of stock options and restricted share units granted by the Board of Directors to employees; and the related costs.
  • Fair value adjustments over net assets acquired are defined as the reversal, in the income statement, of the fair value adjustments recognized as a result of a business combination, as prescribed by IFRS3R. Those adjustments are mainly associated with (i) the amortization expense related to the step-up of the acquired work-in-progress and finished goods assumed at their realizable value and (ii) the amortization of the cancelled commercial margin related to deferred revenue balance acquired.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable IFRS measures and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS.

In the adjusted income statement, Operating Expenses are defined as the sum of Research and Engineering expenses, Sales and Marketing expenses, General and Administrative expenses, and Other income (expense) net.

EBITDA is defined as PFO plus depreciation and amortization expenses, excluding the above amortization and impairment of intangibles resulting from acquisitions.

Net debt and net cash

Net debt is a non IFRS measure defined as total borrowings net of cash and cash equivalents. Net cash is a non IFRS measure defined as cash and cash equivalents net of total borrowings.

All figures presented in this press release are unaudited.

Segment information

Gemalto posted revenue of €650 million, increasing by +8% at constant exchange rates, flat at historical exchange rates from the same period of last year. Excluding the €35 million contribution from the Identity Management Business, Gemalto’s revenue grew +3% at constant exchange rates. The Company’s return to top line growth is supported by strong revenue increase in the Identity, IoT & Cybersecurity segment.

Identity, IoT & Cybersecurity








€ in millions


First quarter 2018


First quarter 2017


Change at constant

exchange rates











The identity, IoT & Cybersecurity segment’s revenue came in at €293 million, increasing +24% compared to the previous year. The backlog in this segment continued to increase driven by solid wins across the businesses.

In the first quarter, the Governments business posted very strong revenue growth compared with the same period of last year. The positive evolution was due to the contribution of the Identity Management Business and initial deliveries of its core solutions to Gemalto’s historical customers. In addition, a significant project using biometric technology was won in the banking sector. It will enable deployment of commercial biometric solutions on a large scale, increasing consumers’ protection in their day-to-day transactions. The increase in passport revenue was solid this quarter, driven by major customers in Europe and Asia while taking into account softer deliveries in the Middle East. Gemalto also announced the launch of two new laser-personalized innovations designed to further increase the security of official identity documents such as national ID cards and passports. The highly sophisticated enhancements are designed to counter forgery while remaining convenient for officials to verify document authenticity of legitimate card-holders. Overall, Gemalto is well positioned to seize the growing opportunities of this market.

The Cybersecurity business delivered a solid performance this quarter. This was driven by a growing number of deployments of encryption and key management software in Europe in anticipation of the May 2018 EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and more broadly as data privacy and data security continue to be a key focus for organizations in light of industry compliance standards such as the US health standard (HIPAA) or payment card standard (PCI-DSS).The software monetization sub-business also grew strongly supported by large projects in Europe and Asia. These developments largely offset the revenue decrease in the authentication sub-business line resulting from the ongoing shift in its product mix from hardware to software.

The IoT business posted an outstanding performance in the first quarter. The increase was driven by strong deliveries in Europe and Asia to large customers in a variety of key industrial sectors that extend Gemalto’s traditional strong foothold in the automotive market. In the field of connected health in particular, Gemalto’s products are playing a decisive role in enhanced medical workflow automation, better analytics for disease management and improved out-patient health monitoring. Security and scalability remain the key criteria for implementation of IoT applications, and new design wins recorded this quarter reflect Gemalto’s strong position across key industrial sectors and ability to cater to the sustained market demand.

Smartcards & Issuance








€ in millions


First quarter 2018


First quarter 2017


Change at constant

exchange rates











The Smartcards & Issuance segment posted revenue of €357 million, (2%) lower at constant exchange rates.

The payment business stabilized this quarter. Sales in Americas decreased by (5%) compared with (34%) in the first quarter of 2017, as the US EMV market continued to gradually normalize. Additionally, the CIS and Middle East regions posted strong performances on the back of large payment card deployments. The SIM business remained under pressure. SIM revenue declined this quarter as low profit-margin opportunities in South Asia were dismissed, in line with the stable profit margin objective set for this business. As part of the transition plan, Gemalto also decided this quarter to exit a specific low-end removable SIM market, cutting its dedicated resources and products for that market.

The Digital business recorded slightly lower revenue year-on-year as growth in mobile services were more than offset by a decrease in payment services. Connectivity solutions deployments increased in key sectors of the IoT market while the need for On Demand Connectivity (ODC) services is now gradually spreading to all regions and mobile network operators. In particular, Gemalto announced a partnership with Korea Telecom to provide its ODC solution and embedded SIM (eSIM) to automobile manufacturers enabling in-vehicle connected services. The revenue reduction in payment services partly resulted from the discontinuation of a business as part of the transition plan.

Thales combination

In December 2017 Thales and Gemalto reached an agreement on a recommended all-cash offer for all issued and outstanding ordinary shares of Gemalto. This offer was launched on March 27, 2018. We are working together with Thales towards achieving the regulatory and antitrust approvals required to complete the transaction. The transaction is expected to close shortly after Thales has secured all customary regulatory approvals and clearances, which is envisaged for the second half of 2018. More information on the Thales offer and the integration can be found on our website at Public Offer by Thales

2018 full year outlook confirmed

  • Double digit revenue growth expected in the Identity, IoT & Cybersecurity segment
  • Stable PFO margin expected in the Smartcards & Issuance segment

Rimini Street推出全新解決方案,進一步延長作為創新基礎的企業軟體的使用壽命並擴展其價值


拉斯維加斯--(美國商業資訊)--全球企業軟體產品和服務提供者、甲骨文和SAP產品領先的協力廠商支援服務提供者Rimini Street, Inc. (Nasdaq: RMNI)今日宣布推出旨在提升企業組織競爭優勢的一系列解決方案中的首款產品,對於這些企業組織而言,其成熟且有價值的企業軟體投資可構成創新基礎。Rimini Street的全新解決方案可幫助企業組織以具有成本效益的方式快速地賦予其當前的企業軟體最新的、現代化的所期特性和功能,為他們規劃適用於未來的、因應未知技術變化的技術平臺,以及確保其系統免受日新月異的威脅環境的影響。Rimini Street新推出的解決方案使企業能夠利用其現有系統作為創新的混合IT策略的堅實基礎。

此新聞稿包含多媒體內容。完整新聞稿可在以下網址查閱: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20180424006173/en/


隨著企業組織在現有的任務關鍵型企業軟體系統中投入了大量的資金、人力和時間,他們希望盡可能提高投資報酬率並延長這些投資的生命週期,同時將新的投資重點放在能夠快速推動成長和競爭優勢的創新方面。Rimini Street的可擴展解決方案旨在為現有成熟的企業軟體系統提供具有成本效益且易於部署的功能和技術能力,以幫助企業實現上述目標,進而讓資訊長們能夠快速推動並利用創新,而無需進行成本高昂的停機升級、成本無法負擔的更換,或者可能需要等待供應商數年才能提供目前所需的功能。

Rimini Street新推出的可擴展解決方案系列還能為企業組織的混合IT策略奠定基礎,這種策略旨在將現有成熟的內部部署的記錄系統與可能包含雲端構架創新技術的參與系統相結合。所述創新可透過改用Rimini Street屢獲殊榮的支援服務計畫所節省的資金予以實現。

Rimini Street全新推出的可擴展解決方案系列中的首批產品包括:

  • Rimini Street Mobility – 使用戶能夠在幾天內快速建立並傳遞行動應用程式,從而以最快的速度實現價值並且不會造成業務中斷。所有現有的流程、客製和邏輯均完全可用,因此無需進行軟體版本移轉或升級。


  • Rimini Street Analytics – 憑藉具有成本效益、可快速部署和易於實作的自助式商業智慧平臺,讓用戶能夠在整個企業內更快地做出更明智的決策。用戶可連接並分析多來源資料,以即時建立自己的自訂報告和儀表板。
  • Rimini Street Advanced Database Security – 這種下一代安全解決方案可在資料庫漏洞攻擊目標之前識別並攔截試圖利用這些漏洞的行為,且無需對資料庫程式碼進行任何更改。Rimini Street的Advanced Database Security已於2017年推出。

Constellation Research首席分析師兼執行長R ‘Ray’ Wang表示:「當今IT產業的客戶希望透過當前的企業軟體平臺實現更大的價值,並長期尋求能夠幫助他們實現平臺現代化的方案,從而無需進行昂貴且無休止的升級。而且,領先企業也在尋求敏捷性和競爭優勢,以實現企業目標。這項全新標準的軟體支援服務有助於他們實現這些目標,並讓客戶能夠利用其企業軟體投資,並獲得最高的投資報酬率。」



Rimini Street Mobility透過提供業界最佳的行動框架來因應這些挑戰,該框架旨在幫助終端使用者快速、輕鬆地建立自己的行動功能。Rimini Street Mobility可降低通行企業應用程式所需的成本,並可將開發和交付新應用程式所需的時間從數月縮短至數日,從而為組織帶來速效方案。


越來越多的組織開始轉由分析軟體來支援其部門終端使用者的需求,讓他們能夠輕而易舉地即時獲得可行的資料情報。這些組織的使用者需要的是易用性、與所有設備相容,以及簡化報告資料的能力。但是,企業軟體供應商目前可提供的方案可能需要較高的授權費用,部署費時,而且通常僅限於單一資料來源。Rimini Street Analytics讓組織及其最終使用者能夠以具有成本效益的方式採購,快速安裝,以及快速取得商業情報解決方案,讓他們能夠從多個資料來源提取資料,包括企業應用程式、資料庫或雲端解決方案。

Rimini Street Advanced Database Security

Rimini Street Advanced Database Security也是可擴展解決方案組合的組成部分。該產品於2017年推出,是保護資料庫免受已知和未知漏洞攻擊的下一代資料庫安全解決方案,而且歸功於現代虛擬修補的使用,比傳統供應商的安全修補速度更快、價格更低,可用於與Rimini Street簽訂支援服務合約的甲骨文、SAP、IBM和Microsoft資料庫。該解決方案可在資料庫受到攻擊之前阻止攻擊嘗試,無需進行回歸測試,也不會影響生產系統。

Rimini Street計畫隨著時間的演變持續推展其可擴展解決方案的範圍和廣度。此外,該公司還提供深層次的技術服務組合,透過解決互通性問題,以及避免硬體、作業系統、資料庫、中介軟體和瀏覽器的不必要升級,讓客戶能夠進一步針對未來規劃現有系統。

Color Spot資訊長Eric Robinson表示:「八年多的時間裡,Rimini Street一直是值得我們信賴的企業軟體支援供應商,在此期間,我們不僅為自己的核心平臺贏得回應超快的優質支援服務,而且每年還為我們的維護總成本節省了大量預算。但是,Rimini Street並不滿足於只是解決故障/修復問題。他們增加了新的維度,提供可快速擴展我們ERP所需的行動性和分析功能的解決方案,而且全都不需要進行昂貴的升級。我們期待在探尋這些新功能的同時,繼續實現業務現代化並贏得競爭優勢。」

Rimini Street執行長Seth A. Ravin表示:「客戶一直在尋找簡單、經濟實惠、簡化且能夠在企業應用程式組合中安全執行的解決方案,而且無需升級或更換當前投入的企業軟體,即可獲得新的現代應用程式功能和技術方面的好處。而我們的解決方案可確保讓企業現有的應用程式實現現代化,其技術能夠免受未來變化的影響,其系統由創新的安全解決方案提供保護。現有的企業軟體投資可作為混合IT策略的基礎多年,這種策略透過『以擴展促進創新』提供競爭優勢——所有這一切都能得到Rimini Street屢獲殊榮的支援服務計畫的支援。」


Rimini Street為所有的可擴展解決方案提供極具吸引力的組合價格和年度訂購價格。Rimini Street Mobility、Rimini Street Analytics和Rimini Street Advanced Database Security均即日起供應。
