Giesecke+Devrient enhances the personal, professional, and digital lives of billions of people every day. Our 11,300 employees in 32 countries around the globe develop, produce, and sell products and solutions for convenient payment, secure communication, and effective identity management. G+D started out in Leipzig in 1852 as a printer of securities, and now provides a broad portfolio of services for modern life on the move. Have you paid for something today using cash, a card, or your smartphone? Each of these payment methods is highly likely to contain technology from G+D. Are you impressed by your new car’s wide range of online functions, such as the automatic emergency call system? Here, again, there’s G+D technology inside. Do you look for swift yet secure border controls when traveling? Thanks to G+D, the latest identification documents and verification systems not only protect national borders effectively, but are also used to secure company premises, for instance. Meanwhile, our cyber security solutions help to make our increasingly interconnected lives more convenient, while providing the highest possible level of security. We call this Creating Confidence.


To ensure we continue building on our success in all of these fields, we have recently restructured our company. For the 2016 fiscal year, the management report and notes to the financial statements apply to the former business areas: Banknote, Mobile Security, Veridos, and secunet. With effect from 2017, G+D has been transformed into a holding company with four subgroups: Currency Technology, Mobile Security, Veridos, and secunet. An overview and profiles of these four operational areas can be found here. The benefits of the new structure for our customers and the company are outlined in an interview by the Chairman of the Management Board, Ralf Wintergerst.
