Sir, Madam, dear shareholder,
Specialising in the digital vision business, i2S designs innovative solutions based on optics and image-processing cameras and software with a high technology content.
Our customer base, like our know-how, is broad and diversified: private players and large public service departments, integrators and parts manufacturers (OEM), scientific research centres, libraries and museums, players in large national or European industrial projects… To each of them, i2S offers over 20 years of experience and an innovative approach which have allowed it to be at the origin of many "World Firsts".
Our technologies lie at the heart of the great economic and cultural challenges. The market for the digitisation of our written heritage, for example, is directly linked to the revolution in access to knowledge which is being brought about by suppliers of online content and software designers. Similarly, development in the means of communication and the phenomenon of digital convergence, in which the image occupies an ever-growing place, opens numerous development prospects to i2S’ business.
As the French market leader in digital vision systems, i2S earned in 2009 53% of its turnover abroad, and wants to rely on this worldwide coverage to intensify its development, principally in the direction of high use value markets like transport safety, sport, Biomedicine or even the media.
For i2S and all its teams, the admission of i2S to Euronext-Alternext represented a strategic stage which is set in an ambitious long-term programme supported by values and a plan. I therefore welcome all who will join and support us as a shareholder within our development.
