Ingenico (Euronext : FR0000125346 - ING), leading worldwide provider of payment solutions, today holds an Investor Day in London and unveils its ambition for 2016.

In a fast-moving payment market with in-depth evolutions, Ingenico remains the central player in the relationship between banks, merchants and their customers, based on its unique expertise and offer adapted to all sales channels (in-store, online and mobile) for merchants, directly or indirectly through banks.

To reach its ambition, Ingenico has defined priorities which will enable the Group to generate profitable growth, based on five strategic axes:

* Deploy its global multi-channel strategy, notably in e-commerce with the integration of Ogone - the acquisition of which has been finalised today - and in mobile payment based on ROAM's platform;

* Further integrate its offer around POS with associated Value Added Services leading to additional revenue for merchants and strengthened relationship with their customers;

* Strengthen its presence in selected emerging markets;

* Keep on innovating with a focus on R&D, to deploy its offer on all connected devices, notably with the launch of the open and secured Telium 3 platform for all applications;

* Continue to evaluate bolt-on acquisition opportunities in payment terminals, services and technology.

Philippe Lazare, Chaiman and CEO of Ingenico commented: « Payment remains the universal, definitive and decisive element in the act of purchasing in a constantly evolving ecosystem marked by the development of both e-commerce and mobile payment, combined with a new relationship between consumers and merchants that has radically changed. In this context, Ingenico is, more than ever, central in the merchant-consumer relationship. By anticipating these changes, Ingenico has become a leading payment enabler. With its diversified geographical footprint, its outstanding range of solutions, its technological leadership, and its solid and diversified customer base, Ingenico has all the assets to deploy a multi-channel offer for merchants and banks. This strategy, based on both our technological and operational expertise will enable us to accelerate further our long term profitable growth. »

In this context, Ingenico has defined its 2016 financial targets to sustain profitable growth, with revenue over EUR 1.8 billion while improving its operational performance with an EBITDA margin above 20%. Moreover, Ingenico plans to implement a dividend policy, with a pay out ratio of 35%.

The presentation will be available on www.ingenico.com/finance, as well as an on-demand webcast from 4pm (Paris).
