PERFORMANCE BY DIVISION
The ADC Division (Automatic Data Capture) specialized in the design and production of fixed retail scanners, professional handheld readers and mobile computers, reported sales revenues totalling 282.4 million Euro (2012: 297.9 million Euro). In the fourth quarter of 2013, divisional revenues came to 79.5 million Euro, up 16.4% compared to 68.3 million Euro in the third quarter of 2013. The rise reflected the initial benefits of new product launches during the year – notably in the fixed scanner segment – and a widespread recovery in the US market.
EVENTS DURING THE YEAR
Reclassified income statement at 31st December 2013 – Euro/1.000
Note: Following the introduction of IAS/IFRS, non-recurring or extraordinary costs are no longer shown separately in financial statements below the operating line but are included in ordinary operating figures. In order to ensure better representation of the Group’s ordinary profitability, we have preferred to show an operating result before the impact of non-recurring costs/income and acquisition-related amortization, which we have called "EBITANR - Earnings before interest, taxes, acquisition and non-recurring". To allow for comparison with the financial statements, we have provided an additional intermediate profit margin (the "operating result"), which includes non-recurring costs/income and amortisation due to acquisitions, and matches the figure reported in the financial statements.
