COVID-19 takes a toll on public transport, speed camera revenue in Qld
The lockdown in March dragged annual revenue down as people stayed home and avoided public transport.Queensland's public transport network recorded a drop in patronage of almost 20 per cent over the past year, costing more than $71 million in fare revenue.
Ecomiam plans to maintain over the next 5 years a sustained rate of growth and targets 110 million euros in turnover by 2025, i.e. a five-fold increase in 5 years. The operating profit should, according to the company, rise to 7 million euros in 2025 (an expected increase of 28 in 5 years): the operating margin would thus be greater than 6%. The funds that will be raised during the IPO should be used to increase the number of points of sale in France (except in Ile-de-France and Corsica), boost the brand's notoriety and expand support functions (in particular for the animation of the network and the IT and finance functions).
Payments from individuals for direct subscription to Ecomiam's capital may give rise to an income tax reduction of 25%. Booming, Ecomiam is expected to see its operating profit out of the red this year. Still, based on the median IPO price of the indicative range (10.50 euros), the market capitalization is expected at nearly 35 million euros, which may seem high. This highand the prospect of a likely stock market over the next few weeks call for caution.
