Bertrand Dumazy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Edenred, said:

Бертран Дюмази, председател и главен изпълнителен директор на Edenred
“The robust growth Edenred has seen in recent periods continued apace in first-half 2023. Thanks to the hard work and talent of our 12,000 employees, this growth is proving ever more profitable, while we continue investing in our technology assets. We are pressing ahead with our Beyond22-25 strategic plan to further penetrate our markets, enhance the experience of our clients, partner merchants and users, and enrich our offering of increasingly relevant solutions. During the first half, we notably strengthened our position as the most trusted global Employee Benefits platform by acquiring Reward Gateway, which operates in the UK, Australia and the US, and GOintegro in Latin America. The acquisition of these two leading employee engagement platforms will enable us to provide HR departments with an even more comprehensive range of solutions, making their organizations more attractive so they can attract and retain top talent. We also plan to expand Reward Gateway’s coverage to a selection of key countries in Continental Europe. Lastly, thanks to the agility of our platform, we are starting to distribute third-party services, such as salary advance solutions, to better meet the expectations of a fast-changing world of work. After this strong first half, our outlook for the second half of the year is just as promising, as we target EBITDA of between €1,020 million and €1,090 million for full-year 2023.”
