Ceva Posts Strong Double-digit Growth Again in 201406 March 2015
FRANCE - Consolidated sales of the Ceva Group reached €766 million at the end of 2014, representing growth of 23 per cent and +14.1 per cent at a constant perimeter and exchange rates.
Sales grew in all zones and across all species with particularly strong performance being recorded in companion animals (+17.3 per cent) and poultry (+14 per cent).
The group delivered an operational result slightly ahead of the budgeted objective but also continued to make significant investment in R&D where spending exceeded nine per cent of sales.
The integration of Sogeval proved to be a major success with the creation of a new Ceva Sogeval campus in Laval, France and significant growth in sales (+21 per cent) in France of the joint business.
Marc Prikazsky, Ceva’s Chairman and CEO commented: “The consistency in our performance is particularly pleasing and stems from our innovative pipeline of products that should continue to drive growth in the years ahead.
"I’m delighted by the way we were able to integrate Sogeval into the group, with minimal disruption and indeed a very strong result in France.”
Ceva’s poultry, swine, services and equipment teams will focus on what is “State of the Art” in animal production during the VIV Asia international trade show to be held in Bangkok from 11 to 13 March 2015.
