COMMENTS

"The recent NAB show confirmed that the key growth drivers of the broadcast
industry are 4K, IP and multiplatform delivery", said Muriel De Lathouwer,
Managing Director&CEO of EVS. "But it also highlighted that the adoption of
these new technologies will happen over years. EVS actively supports
customers in these different transitions. The AIMS alliance (Alliance for IP
Media Solutions), of which EVS is an active member, clearly helps making
progress in the transition to IP."

Commenting on the results and prospects, Yvan Absil, CFO, said: "Our first
quarter sales were in line with our expectations and we delivered a strong
order book in the context of a big event year. Revenue was supported by good
performance in the Americas and APAC regions. For 2016, we expect revenue to
be between EUR 120 million and EUR 140 million, including around EUR 11
million of rentals from big events. We entered 2016 with the same disciplined
approach to cost management. The EBIT margin for the quarter was 28.1% (24.3%
excludingother revenues)
, and the EPS EUR 0.36."
