Philippe Vallee, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "In the second quarter, Gemalto's year-on-year base of comparison in the US Payment business was at its most challenging level, reflecting the on-going adjustments in US EMV demand. In addition the removable SIM business deteriorated faster than we expected. As a result, the Company's first semester results were disappointing. Looking ahead, Gemalto expects to generate year-on-year stable revenue in the second semester supported by an acceleration in its Enterprise, Government Programs and Machine-to-Machine businesses leading to the outlook announced in July. The priorities that I have set for the teams are to rapidly integrate the newly acquired Identity Management Business, successfully execute the first actions of the transition plan and focus our investments on offers that are key to our clients' digital transformation."
