Chairman's Message

Pierre Cesarini

Chairman of the Board of Directors, Group Chief Executive Officer

In a constantly changing technology world, our expertise, our innovative strategic vision and our execution capacity set us apart.

Claranova closes another fiscal year of stellar growth, with revenue in excess of €260 million and operating profitability of €16 million.

These results demonstrate once again our Group’s strength and our ability to boost the performance of each of our businesses.

In a constantly changing technology world, our expertise, our innovative strategic vision and our execution capacity set us apart. We develop profitable and extremely high-growth businesses in buoyant markets, using unique business models.

This is how we became the world leader in mobile printing in only four years, with over €170 million in revenue and growth of 40%, while increasing our profitability. Our business is supported by millions of loyal customers across 12 countries.

We’ve transformed our internet segment, moving towards a software publishing model in the security, financial services, PDF and photo sectors, with a repeat revenue business model. We’ve already seen clear results, with profitability exploding from 1% to 12% in only one year.

Finally, our IoT business has now entered the commercialization phase. More than 300 customers and 1200 projects were deployed in the past nine months, revealing tremendous development potential.

We’re now, therefore, aiming for 2023 revenue of €700 million and operating profitability in excess of 10%.

The Group’s positive momentum and embedded growth have encouraged us to be more daring and raise our 4-year goals.

We’re now, therefore, aiming for 2023 revenue of €700 million and operating profitability in excess of 10%.

I’d like to thank all our partners, customers and shareholders, without whom the Claranova adventure wouldn’t exist. The Group is still far from achieving its full potential. We’ll continue our innovation-driven growth strategy to harness the major source of value creation available to us.”
