Revenue increased by 16% over the fourth quarter, reaching €8.2 million. The runrate, transactions processed with HiPay during the last month of the year, extrapolated over twelve months, reached 2.4 billion euros.

Sustained growth for the Payment division

The fourth quarter confirmed the high level of growth observed throughout the year. Transactions processed climbed to €507 million over the last three months, representing more than twice the number of transactions processed during the same period in 2015 (+103%).

In 2016, the payment activity's sales totaled €19.2 million, a 46% growth compared to 2015. Transactions processed increased by 90% over the year, reaching €1.5 billion, with a monthly record in December of €190 million.

This dynamic growth demonstrates the significance of the HiPay platform. The payment division now represents 90% of the transactions processed by the Group. HiPay Enterprise, our solution for large e-tailers, added more than a hundred new clients during the year, in France and internationally, including Claudie Pierlot, ePRICE, ID Kids, Intermarché, Maje, Natalys, Netatmo, Sandro, Verbaudet, and Videdressing. Regarding HiPay Professional, the payment solution dedicated to smaller e-tailers, the number of active clients reached 2,500 merchants.

Decrease in Micropayment activity

The micropayment division sales decreased by 9% during the exercise, of which -28% in the last quarter. This decline is related to, in part, the decision by carriers to discontinue a historical payment method, and also to the termination of non-strategic activities by refocusing on more promising verticals.

In line with this strategy, HiPay Mobile will continue to strengthen its teams to sustain its position in the gaming market and to increase its business performance with new products, such as donations via SMS. Beginning with the 2013 AFM Telethon (French Muscular Dystrophy Association), the new offering is now launched with other associations, including SOS Villages d'Enfants and Fondation Hôpitaux de Paris - Hôpitaux de France.

Next financial communication: March 23rd, 2017 - 2016 Full-Year results.
