Delta Drone: sale of 11.20% of the stake in Donecle – 06/02/2023 at 6:10 p.m.

(AOF) – Delta Drone announces the sale of 11.20% of the capital of Donecle to a company formed around the management of Donecle. Following this transaction, Delta Drone will continue to hold 13.63% of the capital. This transaction is part of the asset disposal program initiated several months ago. It also responds to the wish of Donecle’s main managers to strengthen their position in the company’s capital, in line with the significant development currently enjoyed by the company.

Donecle is today the world leader in automated general visual inspection of aircraft based on drone technology, offering a unique solution combining a 100% automated drone with advanced image analysis algorithms.


Growth of the French market in value

According to the Gfk institute, the sector generated sales of 4.8 billion euros in 2021, an increase of 2% compared to 2020. The product families which benefited from the best performances are in particular helmets and accessories as well as televisions. However, while the French consumer electronics market grew in value last year, it fell in terms of volumes (-2% with 51 million units sold). This trend can be explained by a move upmarket in products: Bluetooth speakers are more powerful or even televisions use more innovative technologies. Thus the development of technologies that improve image resolution (Oled, Qled, miniled) and the size of screens have caused an increase of more than 20% in the average price. Consumers are also looking for more sustainable products.
