Datalogic, a privately-held computer software company, forecasted growth in its business as of this year 2014 which is attributed to several growth drivers. Main underlying reasons include the strengthening of the company’s leadership in teams penetrating the Automatic Data Capture (ADC) & Industrial Automation (IA) markets. In addition, the company is aiming for constant product innovation through a continued annual R&D investment of no less than 7% of revenue. Forecasted revenues for the year 2014 are between 600-620 million euros, with EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) forecast between 105-110 million euros. THE ROE forecast is at 22-23%. A very considerable improvement in net financial debt is also forecasted, with estimates ranging between 40-50 million euros, due mainly in part to increased cash generation. With the continued focus on value-creation drivers, the company hopes to continue its expansion.
