INGENICO GROUP: Trading Update

Ingenico Group today announces an adjustment to its objective for revenue
growth for H2 2016. This adjustment is due to two elements: the rapid and
temporary market decline in the US caused by the change in the EMV rules, and
persistent difficult macroeconomic conditions in Brazil. In all other
geographies, as well as for the ePayments division, Ingenico Group will
deliver excellent performances. The Group highlights the continued solid
growth dynamics in Asia Pacific and in Europe. The ePayments division will
also deliver strong growth in the second half of the year, enabling the Group
to accelerate its transition to on-line and mobile services activity.

The updated Group's objectives for the full year 2016 are:

* Organic revenue growth [1] >= 7% (from >= 10% previously)
* EBITDA margin [2] >= 20% (from c.21% previously).

In recent weeks Ingenico Group has been facing a sudden and significant
decline in its US market which accounts for approximately 10% of Group
revenues. The Group now anticipates a strong decline in sales for this
country in the second half of 2016.

This market decline has been caused by a relaxation in the EMV rules. The
result of this is a slowing down in the pace of adoption of EMV technology,
of which Ingenico Group is one of the main providers. The relaxation of the
rules is temporary, and Ingenico Group remains confident in the continued
roll-out of EMV in the United States which should continue to progress in
2017 and beyond.

In Brazil, the economic deterioration is affecting the Group's performance.
Despite resilient performances in other Latin American countries, the decline
in this region for the second half of the year is now anticipated to be
greater than in the first half.
Ingenico Group will deliver excellent performances in all other geographies as
well as for the ePayments division.Excluding Brazil and the United States,the
Group will maintain a double digit growth for the second half of 2016.

Philippe Lazare, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Ingenico Group
commented:

"The elements which have come at the same time have led us to take a more
prudent approach to our objective for the end of this year. This temporary
situation, to which we are giving our fullest attention, does not in any way
affect the fundamentals of our strategy and the objectives which we have laid
out for 2020."
