The revenue of Nedap for the year 2012, at US$230.6 million (€ 171.9 million), was 13% up on 2011 ($204.3million). Corrected for the planned phasing-out of the traditional supplier activities, the growth in revenue was no less than 20%. Nearly all market groups - despite the difficult economic climate - managed to once more continue the solid upward trend of organic growth in revenue. The profit after taxes went up by 23% to $ 18.1 million (2011: $ 14.8 million). The earnings per share finished at $ 2.70 compared to $ 2.20 in 2011. Of the profit, 75% will be distributed as dividends. The dividend per share will therefore be $ 2.03 (2011: $ 1.65).
The market group AVI (Automatic Vehicle Identification, products for vehicle and driver identification and wireless parking systems) once more managed to achieve an impressive growth in revenue in 2012. With a complete range of long-distance recognition systems, AVI now offers the ideal solution for a whole variety of projects. The broad product portfolio - in combination with a further intensification of the marketing activities - resulted in higher revenue in virtually all countries where the market group is active.
