INGENICO GROUPE First Half 2006 / Revenue up 22%

NEUILLY-SUR-SEINE -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 19, 2006 --The INGENICO Group booked unaudited revenue of an estimated EUR 253 million in the first half of 2006.

This is a record performance in the company's history, with revenue 22 percent higher than in the first half of 2005 (EUR 207.4 million).

On a like-for-like basis, this translates into 27.5 percent growth for the six-month period, and 24 percent growth on a like-for-like basis and at constant exchange rates.

This remarkable achievement was driven in particular by extremely strong business growth in Latin America, North America, Australia and Italy.

"We are extremely pleased with our performance in this six-month period, especially with the sharp increase in revenue in North America (+ 47 percent), a top-priority growth region for INGENICO," said Amedeo d'Angelo, the Group's Chief Executive Officer.

INGENICO will be communicating its complete results to the financial community on September 21, 2006 (press release on Sept. 20 after Paris stock market closing time).
