Bertrand Dumazy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Edenred, said: Edenred reports a record year once again, driven by the effective rollout of its Beyond22-25 strategic plan. I would like to thank and congratulate our 12,000 employees for their incredible contribution. Year after year, our virtuous dynamic of sustainable and profitable growth brings us ever more opportunities to consolidate our leadership position and broaden the scope of our businesses.

Our excellent financial performance enables us in particular to invest heavily in our technology. Our connected digital platform is at the heart of our business model. It enables us to offer our stakeholders more efficient, customizable and easy-to-use solutions. Furthermore, by ramping up its performance and flexibility, our platform becomes both more efficient and more attractive. This notably allows us to distribute third-party solutions and, in doing so, broaden our value proposition, but also to have our solutions distributed by partners.

Our strong cash flow generation also enables us to seize opportunities for external growth, while maintaining a very robust financial position. 2023 will have been strong year for M&A, notably in the field of employee engagement with the acquisitions of Reward Gateway and GOintegro, but also in the freight payment market in Brazil with PagBem.

We have kicked off 2024 with two new acquisitions. In Europe, the acquisition of Spirii, a SaaS platform managing all aspects of electric vehicle charging, will bolster our e-mobility offering for fleet managers. In Brazil, the acquisition of RB will consolidate our employee benefits offering with a leading solution for the management employee transport cards. On the strength of this positive momentum, we are highly confident in our prospects for 2024 and beyond.”
