Lexington, KY - WhatTheyThink, the leading media organization serving the printing and publishing industry, today announced the availability of The latest Imaging Industry Margin Index Report from the Woodford Group.The current report, the nineteenth in the quarterly series, provides the most recent data points and analysis revealing key trends within the industry as a whole, as well as individual strengths and weaknesses of 12 key players.

The Woodford Group specializes in providing imaging industry consulting to the financial community. Since 2004, the Woodford Group together with their partner, the Photizo Group, have tracked key revenue and profitability metrics of these 12 companies, which represent well over 90 percent of the distributed imaging industry.

Rob Sethre, CEO and principal analyst at Woodford Group, commented: “It is interesting to note how resilient the imaging industry is, especially in light of the current economic difficulties. We see steady economic performance in key measures, which is a positive result in comparison to other more crisis-prone sectors of the economy. The results are not stellar, but also far from disastrous and above the low points of earlier reports. The results point to a dip, but certainly not a dive in industry revenue and operating income.”

The report focuses on quarterly and accumulated total market revenue and operating income trends. In addition, the respective shares achieved by the companies included in the index are tracked and analyzed. The updated results reveal short- and long-term indications regarding the state of the imaging industry as a whole as well as the individual companies covered.

Sethre continued: “Of course, the data alone is only a part of the story. It is also important to apply relevant industry experience to interpret the results effectively. When viewing the results of the individual companies, it is crucial to provide clarity through the knowledge base of our analysts.“
