ESI Group, Paris, France, (ISIN Code: FR0004110310, Symbol: ESI), today releases its sales for the third quarter 2021 (period from July 1st to September 30th).

End of Q3 sales confirm the diagnostic we presented earlier this month: ESI stands on strong differentiators that continue to sustain growth with the installed base, and a deep transformation of ESI’s historic operating model is required to capture the full potential of the market. Upon announcing our “One ESI 2024- Focus to grow” plan, we immediately moved into the realm of a 2022 budget process reflecting a global approach to sales and focus on core business. We are sustaining the team’s energy via active communication and coaching so that our entire leadership is focused on execution, critical to unlocking ESI’s potential and value.
