The strong growth in turnover in FY 2010-11 confirms the validity of the Group strategy:

Closures have enjoyed strong momentum, delivering 17.9% growth like-for-like, largely sustained by technological DIAM closures; Barrels have returned to growth, despite a sluggish overall market, driven notably by China, and by the development of alternative products.

Given these trends, Oeneo confirms its objectives of improving its operating margin and significantly reducing its debt over the full year.

Closures: the milestone of half a billion DIAM closures

With a turnover of ¤65 million, the Closures division posted an excellent performance, up 17.9% like-for-like.

Over half a billion units of DIAM closures were shipped (including a record figure of over 160 million in the fourth quarter), delivering + 26% revenue growth.


The other categories of technological closures also experienced satisfactory growth, at +8%.

Overall, with close to 900 million units shipped during the year, the Group is reaping the benefits of its commercial and innovation strategy.

Barrels: strong activity, continued innovations

Annual turnover came out at ¤77.5 million, up by ¤2.4 million (up 0.8% at constant exchange rates).

The return to growth was due to commercial successes in emerging markets, strong orders for large capacity barrels, and steady growth in the Group's alternative products offering, in an international market with a clear potential.

In its principal markets (Europe and the United States), the division operated in a business environment similar to the previous year's. The Group was able to consolidate its market share as it continued to rely on its ability to innovate.

In this respect, following the success of Oakscan at Radoux, Seguin Moreau recently launched the Icône Elégance barrel, the first member of the "Icône" family, designed for ageing premium, full-bodied red wines. In the "Icône" range, the oak is selected following an analysis of its composition in order to generate a consistent and accurate oaky profile for a chosen category of wine. Other offerings are currently at the approval stage. 

Oeneo will publish its 2010-2011 annual results on 30 May after close of trading.
