Update following the Q1 17 results

Change in EPS2017 : € 0.24 vs 0.26-5.57%
2018 : € 0.25 vs 0.28-9.27%

Following the Q1 17 results, we have updated our forecasts for the coming years. Our top-line estimate for 2017 is downgraded from €20.7m to €20.2m, mainly due to a cut in the Terminals business (-7.2% yoy vs. -3% previously) in the light of a difficult Q1. In addition, we now see growth of 9.7% in 2018 vs. 12.2% previously, in order to reflect a progressive recovery in the Terminals business.

Despite improvements in both segments, the bottom-line mechanically suffers from the higher share of Authorisations in the mix, for which the gross margin is much lower than Terminals.

Change in DCF€ 2.48 vs 2.78-10.9%

The DCF is negatively impacted by the top-line downgrade, which translates into a lower cash generation, despite unchanged long-term parameters.
