Lectra says the sale of new systems fell by 19 percent in 2005 in connection with the abolishment of import quotas on textile products in Europe and the USA, while the sale of spare parts and after-sale and maintenance services grew by 7 percent to represent 48 percent of its total turnover of €211.2 million. On a comparable basis, excluding recent acquisitions, Lectra’s total revenues declined by 8 percent for the year, with decreases in each region of the world, and the operating margin fell from 4.2 to 3.8 percent. Extraordinary charges led to a net loss of €12.3 million as against a profit of €7.8 million. The French company expects a rebound in the sale of new systems for this year.
