BRUSSELS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
Dalenys (Brussels:NYS) (Paris:NYS) (ISIN BE0946620946 -- Mnemo NYS) publishes its turnover at 30 September 2016 which increased to €48.9m, up 34% compared to the first 9 months of 2015.

(*) Proforma revenue
- excluding the BtoC division sold on 1 July 2015. The revenue published to 30 September 2015 under the BtoC division was €16.1m
- excluding Repu7ation (Marketing division) sold effective from 30 June 2016 - the revenue published in Q3 2015 for Repu7ation was €0.1m and has been removed for comparative purposes.
Thibaut Faurès Fustel de Coulanges, Chief Executive Officer of Dalenys states: "The robust growth of the Payment division is confirmed again this quarter by new commercial successes and the satisfaction of our existing clients who are entrusting an increasing proportion of their flows to us. Quarter after quarter, the progresses made make us increasingly confident in reaching our target of 5 billion euros in flows by 2018. The restructuring which aims to bring the Marketing and Telecom activities back to profitability has begun and will continue to have an impact in the short term. "
Payment division: continued growth and new commercial success
In the 3rd quarter the Payment division recorded a revenue of €4.0m, 30% higher than that of the 3rd quarter 2015 during which Dalenys had already noted a very strong increase in its revenue (+98% vs. Q3 2014).
The increase in revenue doesn't reflect yet the strong commercial momentum and the success achieved this summer on tenders with leading merchants. The Run rate (*) therefore rose to €1.9b at 31 October 2016, up 50% compared to the Run rate (*) for October 2015.
The volume of sales collected over the first nine months of 2016 is €1.22b, compared to €0.66b for the same period in 2015. As anticipated, the average commission applied to this volume of sales is down slightly, in favour of signing large volumes with leading retailers. It ended at 1.03% over nine months in 2016 compared to 1.18% in 2015. Over the first 9 months of the year, revenue for the Payment division thereby ended at €12.5m, up 61%.
The quality of the Be2Bill platform, the availability rate of which is higher than 99.9%, was also validated this quarter from a regulatory and technical point of view with, on the one hand, an extension of the ACPR payment-institution approval for the provision of transfer and SEPA direct debit services, and on the other hand, renewal of the highest level PCI DSS Level 1 technical certification for e-commerce and in-store payment.
The increase in business from existing clients and new major accounts signed over the last few months is allowing to set a target Run rate (*) of €2.2b by 31 December 2016, which would mean a significant step towards the 2018 target of €5b.

Refocusing the Marketing division on email/retargeting, in synergy with Payment
The 33% drop in sales for the Marketing division as at the 3rd quarter
(-€0.5m approx.) is essentially linked to the cash-back activity which
has experienced an unfavourable base effect. In fact, client acquisition
campaigns had sustained revenue in 2015 but impacted the margin
negatively. This activity is currently being strengthened under the
direction of the new division management.
Retargeting and email activities continue to grow in perfect synergy with the Payment division, and in accordance with the action plan announced in the half-year publication.
Finally, in line with the strategy for refocusing the Marketing division's activities, the 51% equity interest held in the Repu7ation joint venture has been sold to its director with effect from 30 June 2016, with a marginal impact on the division's revenue and a negligible impact on results.
Selective growth for the Telecom division on the most profitable activities
The growth of the Telecom division as at the 3rd quarter, +12%, is more
moderate that seen in the first part of the year (+45%) in synch with
the strategy of refocusing on activities with greater value-added.
Dalenys is deploying its action plan for the Telecom division effectively. Non-profitable services have been stopped and the product mix refocussed on 3 priority assets: interactive voice services for media, "wholesale" telephone flows for publishers and telecom operators and micropayment in France.
These actions are starting to demonstrate their effectiveness and should have a tangible impact on reducing operational losses in the 2nd semester.
