Hexagon: Hexagon’s financial plan updated at Capital Markets Day

Regulatory News:

Hexagon AB (STO:HEXAB), a leading global provider of design, measurement and visualisation technologies, held a Capital Markets Day (CMD) in Las Vegas, Nevada, and updated its commentary around the operational progress for the company and the financial plan.

Hexagon launched its current financial plan in 2011 and it stretches until 2015. The sales target of EUR 3.5bn and the EBIT margin target of 25 per cent are to be reached through a combination of organic growth and acquisitions.

Since the launch of the plan Hexagon has reported solid organic growth although slightly below the long-term target of eight per cent. Contribution from acquisitions has so far been limited but activity has recently picked up evidenced by the seven acquisitions already announced in 2014.

The underlying EBIT margin improvement has been in line with internal projections, but currency movements has had a negative impact of approximately one percentage point on the reported EBIT margin.

As a consequence of the above the sales target of EUR 3.5bn and the EBIT margin target of 25 per cent remain unchanged but are pushed forward one year to 2016.

At the CMD, Hexagon put focus on its ability to grow twice the rate of GDP and elaborated on growth opportunities in the coming years, such as:

  • Product releases within Metrology (SIMS 360°, HP-O and MMS) which will leverage on advances in sensor and software capabilities
  • Geosystems’ ambition of selling imagery content as a service (CaaS), leveraging on recent M&A (Aibotix, AHAB, NWG, Geosoft, Tridicon) and improvements in sensor capabilities
  • Intergraph PP&M’s revolutionary SmartPlant Cloud and SmartPlant Fusion as examples of how improved management of big data can meet operational challenges for Owner Operators in a range of fields

Hexagon also underlined the importance of acquisitions in its solution-centric strategy, and exemplified this by strategy walkthroughs of the areas Hexagon Mining and Smart Agriculture.

The technologies behind big data and cloud computing are converging quickly, offering businesses new capabilities for fast, easy, wide-ranging access to data. However, to capitalize on the cost-efficiencies and time-to-value opportunities of analytics in the cloud, big data and cloud technologies must be integrated and managed properly. Pythian's Director of Big Data and Data Science, Danil Zburivsky will explore: The main technology components and best practices being deployed to take advantage...
DXWorldEXPO | CloudEXPO are the world's most influential, independent events where Cloud Computing was coined and where technology buyers and vendors meet to experience and discuss the big picture of Digital Transformation and all of the strategies, tactics, and tools they need to realize their goals. Sponsors of DXWorldEXPO | CloudEXPO benefit from unmatched branding, profile building and lead generation opportunities.
DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.
Today, we have more data to manage than ever. We also have better algorithms that help us access our data faster. Cloud is the driving force behind many of the data warehouse advancements we have enjoyed in recent years. But what are the best practices for storing data in the cloud for machine learning and data science applications?
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
