Solid growth

An excellent 1H performance was driven by the two main segments, Catalogue and New Productions.

Catalogue revenue tripled over the period, taking Xilam to the next level of its development. This increase stemmed from significant sales to both TV channels and digital platforms. In particular, sales to digital platforms jumped 149% to account for 40% of Catalogue revenue. Growth on the YouTube platforms is continuing its upward trajectory, with 1.12 billion views.

New Productions also performed well. This segment posted revenue of EUR 4.6 million, an increase of more than 13%, boosted by delivery of the latest episodes of Rolling with the Ronks! and further deliveries from season 5 of Oggy & the Cockroaches .

Strong international growth continues

International sales accounted for more than 67% of H1 revenue, an increase of over 194% during the period, thereby consolidating Xilam’s position as a global leader in the animation market.

Xilam content is now shown in more than 160 countries and in 600 million households.

Xilam has secured a number of major contracts for TV and on the leading digital platforms

On top of a solid revenue performance, the first half also saw the signing of several contracts that will further strengthen Xilam’s growth potential in the coming years:

  • The signing of a global distribution agreement with Amazon for its two flagship series Oggy & the Cockroaches and Zig & Sharko
  • The signing of an agreement with Netflix on three series that are currently in production
  • The signing of a new agreement with the Disney Channel for the broadcast of Oggy & the Cockroaches in Germany

Also in the first half of the year, Xilam signed a master toy licensing agreement with Lansay, which should gradually increase merchandising revenue.

Record full-year 2017 revenue expected

After a successful first half to the year, the pace of programme delivery will increase in the second half, to account for two-thirds of 2017 deliveries. Xilam is confident that it will post record revenue in 2017.

Season 5 of Oggy & the Cockroaches already a success

Global advance sales for the new season of Oggy & the Cockroaches were exceptional, and the first programmes will be launched in the third quarter of 2017, notably on Gulli in France, Discovery in Italy, Disney in Germany and Cartoon Network for the whole of Asia.

The quality of this series, along with the projected global distribution and multi-platform programming, will give the Oggy brand unprecedented exposure.

A step-up in production capacity

The upgraded studios that came on stream in 2016 (in Vietnam, Lyon and Angoulême) are now fully operational, enabling Xilam to confirm its ability to deliver about 350 half hours of programmes in 2017-2020.

New series in development

Production of the Mr Magoo series began in early 2017, and Xilam is currently developing a number of new series, including:

  • Coach me if you can
  • Zig & Sharko 3
  • Rolling with the Ronks! 2
  • Petit Méchant Loup [Little Bad Wolf]
  • The fabulous adventures of prince Moka

Coach me if you can and Zig & Sharko 3 are scheduled to enter production in the second half of 2017.

A stronger, more hands-on management team

To support its expansion, Xilam has strengthened its management structure with the arrival of François Bardoux (CFO), Morgann Favennec (Executive VP Development & Global Sales) and Nicolas Halftermeyer (SVP Marketing and Digital), and the internal promotion of François-Xavier de Maistre (Executive VP Organisation and Human Resources).

1 Million MOTION CODE™ Online Transactions With Société Générale17.10.2017 10:07Pressemelding

IDEMIA, the global leader in trusted identities for an increasingly digital world, today announced the milestone of 1 million MOTION CODE TM online transactions with Société Générale. Société Générale was one of the first banks worldwide to launch MOTION CODE™, the next-generation card integrating a dynamic security code by IDEMIA (formerly known as OT-Morpho). This solution consists in replacing the 3 digits of the cryptogram printed on the back of the card with a small screen displaying a new “dynamic” code every hour. Thus, in case of piracy of the bank card’s data, the 3 digits of the cryptogram quickly become obsolete, preventing fraudsters from reusing data, especially on e-commerce sites. After successful testing among more than 500 people in 2016, Société Générale started offering MOTION CODE™ to all their French customers early 2017. In les
