There aren’t too many publicly traded companies in the pro AV market so when one announces earnings, it should be paid attention to as a bellwether of the market. Today Barco announced financial results for the six month period ended June 30, 2019. Orders and sales increased in each division resulting in a consolidated growth of 7.5% and 8.3%, respectively. In Entertainment substantial cinema-uptakes in North America and Western Europe produced a 12.6% increase in orders. In Enterprise, double digit growth in orders and sales for both ClickShare and Control Rooms propelled the division’s strong performance. On the strength of a solid orderbook at the start of year, healthcare sales grew across the portfolio, led by the surgical segment.EBITDA margin expanded 3.3 percentage points compared to 1H18 reflecting continued gross profit margin improvements and increased operating expense efficiencies. Each division posted higher EBITDA margins compared to the first half of 2018.During the first half of 2019, Barco began to implement its “fit to lead” program, the company’s efficiency and capability building plan. The company also continued to advance a number of key growth initiatives. Under the “In China for China” program, Barco’s strategy to more effectively penetrate the Chinese healthcare market, Barco opened its R&D and manufacturing center in Suzhou.
