“A successful year has been closed by ANY. Not only domestic but also export sales significantly contributed to its dynamic growth. Every third forint comes from foreign markets, where ratio of security products and document cards are gaining more and more importance. Personnel expenses grew by HUF 548 million in order to keep our highly educated employees. Net income of year 2018 was decreased by a provision, which was accounted at the end of the year; without this one-off item net profit would have been increased by 7% compared to previous year. The new production hall, which is being built and in which we will install new capacities, will significantly contribute to maintain this healthy growth in the future.” – commented Gábor Zsámboki, CEO of ANY Security Printing Company PLC.
