Kortrijk, Belgium, 17 April 2019, 7:30 am – Today Barco (Euronext: BAR; Reuters: BARBt.BR; Bloomberg: BAR BB) announced the results for the first quarter ended 31 March 2019.

All divisions delivered growth for the first quarter of the year. The Enterprise division produced another quarter of solid growth fueled by continued strong momentum for both ClickShare, as well as Control Rooms which delivered its third consecutive quarter of year-over-year sales growth. Sales for the Entertainment division were stronger than last year led by further uptakes in Cinema in North America and EMEA.  The Healthcare division continued to post solid results in all segments.

Quote of the CEO, Jan De Witte

 

“I’m pleased to see that the progress we are making translate into healthy first quarter topline results. After working on portfolio choices and turnarounds over the past 2 years and redeploying resources towards new product offerings and commercial capabilities, we are re-establishing growth and continuing our drive to become a sustainable profitable growth company,” said Jan De Witte, CEO Barco.

“We now expect to deliver mid to high single digit sales growth for the year assuming currencies and the global economic environment remain stable, with continued EBITDA and EBITDA margin growth.” [2]
