Berlin, 28 March 2019 | IVU Traffic Technologies remains on course for success: In its Annual Report published today, the Berlin-based IT specialist for public transport announces the best results in its more than 40-year history. All key figures – revenue (€77.8 million), gross profit (€52.1 million) and EBIT (€6.7 million) – were significantly up on the previous year.
To allow shareholders to participate in the positive performance, IVU’s Executive Board and Supervisory Board have resolved to propose a dividend of €0.12 per share at the Annual General Meeting on 28 May 2019 – a 20 percent increase compared with last year’s distribution.
“This result is a great success and shows that our strategy is working. Driving forces for growth were mainly our core markets in Western Europe, where rail and transport companies continue to invest heavily in digitalisation,” says Martin Müller-Elschner, CEO of IVU Traffic Technologies. “Our outlook is also correspondingly positive. This is underlined not least by recent orders and partnerships with leading companies in our industry.” IVU recently announced an order from DB Long Distance and signed a partnership with Daimler Buses.
