Record 4Th Quarter Order Intake in 2012 For MICROWAVE VISION Group
PARIS --(Business Wire)--
The annual order intake for the MICROWAVE VISION Group reaches €50.5M
in 2012, a 5% increase from 2011. In the last quarter, contracts worth
€26M were secured, totaling more than half the annual orders.
The previous record of €17M recorded in the third quarter of 2011 has
been substantially exceeded by that of the last quarter of 2012 for the
MICROWAVE VISION Group (MVG), an average of €2M per week in orders.
These orders result from an ongoing sales and marketing effort carried
out over previous months and reflect the economic recovery and
regeneration of American orders which have long been on hold.
The €26M of orders (over 350 in total) results equally from the various
regions of the world in which MVG prospers: 32% from Asia, 34% from
Europe and 34% from the United States.
The Group's historic Core Business Unit, Antenna Measurement Systems
(AMS), recorded €19.6M worth of orders over the last quarter of 2012.
These orders are shared between €11.7M (60%) issued in the Aerospace and
Defense sector and €7.9M (40%) for Civil Telecommunications. These
figures reinforce the Group's strong historic positioning in the antenna
This commercial record also demonstrates the successful take-off of the
Group's Electromagnetic Compatibilit (EMC (News - Alert)) Business Unit. This is to
say, out of the €26M of order intake, about €6M come from this unit, an
important sustainable sector for the Group. This Business Unit groups
together a part of AEMI business activities (Absorbent Materials) and
those of the English company Rainford EMC Systems (Shielded Rooms),
acquired last July.
The remaining €0.4M results from the Environmental and Industrial
Control (EIC) Business Unit.
Funds raised last July from its banking partners have enabled MVG to
accelerate the deployment of new products in AMS and to leverage its
other Business Units.
"We have the resources and therefore we are preparing to take new
offensive action in two of our main sectors, in Electromagnetic
Compatibility on the one hand, and in Environmental and Industrial
Control systems on the other hand," explained Philippe Garreau, the
Next update, the 2012 revenue release, is scheduled for February 25th.
