Photo-Me notes fall in share price

Photo-Me has noted the fall in its share price today following media comment regarding photo ID regulations in the UK.

The company confirmed it has continued to trade in line with its expectation since its interim results announced on 9 December.

“Photo-Me’s solutions have been adopted by ANTS (Agence Nationale des Titres Securises, a national agency linked to the French Ministry of Transport and issuing secured official personal documents) as well as by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade in the Republic of Ireland where trials are under way for photobooth secure online passport applications.

“Furthermore, it is currently in ongoing discussions with Her Majesty’s Passport Office in order to equip its photobooths in the United Kingdom with the technology used in France.”
