After the strong growth in the previous years, the revenue of N.V. Nederlandsche Apparatenfabriek “Nedap” levelled out in 2013. Total revenue ended at € 173.7 million, thus 1% higher than for 2012 (€ 171.9 million). The market groups Identification Systems (formerly known as AVI), Energy Systems, Healthcare, and Retail showed marked growth. The revenue of the market groups Light Controls and Security Management was virtually the same as in 2012. The market groups Library Solutions and Livestock Management were down on the previous year.
The added value, expressed as a percentage of the revenue, went up in the year under review from 67.8% (2012) to 68.4%. Due to the continuous investment in propositions and organisation, the rise in expenditure was more than the increase in added value, as a result of which the profit was down from € 13.5 million (2012) to € 9.8 million. The earnings per share finished at € 1.46 compared to € 2.01 in 2012. Of the profit, 75% will be distributed as dividends. The dividend per share will therefore be € 1.10. The dividend in 2012 was € 1.51.
