Pricer is delivering systems that are optimizing and simplifying the processes of price labeling and information dissemination via electronic shelf labels (ESL) in retail stores. Pricer is a global company, which has an in-house sales organization as well as commercialization through its partners-network in markets with very low penetration rates. The products are self-developed and are externally manufactured, mainly in Asia. Today, Pricer’s biggest market consists of Europe, in particular France. In total, Pricer has installed more than 140 million labels in 50+ countries.
Lately, the ESL market has attracted competition, which has led to a trend with decreased margins. This is especially notable in the initial pilot projects, where many different actors are involved in the procurement processes. There is a risk that this trend might continue. Furthermore, since Pricer is operating in the retail segment, decreasing investments in this area could affect profitability negatively. Technology risk is also a factor that could affect Pricer’s business.
