Over the 9-month period, Printing (excluding Home Décor) at ¤13.2 million is down 7% due to the global downturn in the advertising market.

As anticipated, overall Hardware activity (excluding Home Décor) at ¤10.2 million (-53%) remains down but in accordance with S1 trend (-50%). Q3 results however show a slight improvement compared to the previous 2 quarters.

The breakeven readjustment plan, presented along with the annual results, has been successfully concluded. The impact should become apparent during the fourth quarter 2009/2010.

On December 31st 2009, order backlog, essentially made of "hardware" is stable at ¤5.6 million. Even if the period remains difficult, the number of client contacts is progressing.
The Group recorded its first orders for Graph'it (glue-free posting solution) for the mass retail market, and for PRISMATRONIC (new LED solution) from advertisers.
