TomTom's Chief Executive Officer, Harold Goddijn

"We reported a solid set of results in the third quarter and generated strong cash from operations.
We launched a number of new products across our businesses, such as our first sport watch for golfers, a line of fully customisable driver terminals and an online turn-by-turn navigation product.
We also achieved a very important milestone with the commercial release of the MultiNet-R map format in September. This map format is the first product fully built from our new map-making platform. With incremental updating at the core of its design, MultiNet-R will serve as a key component in delivering short cycle times between detecting changes in the real world and updating the map on the end-user's devices.

In Automotive, we continue to make good progress in delivering our connected navigation system components. Our bookings for this year so far are above €170 million, which together with orders secured earlier will support growth in our Automotive business from 2016 onwards."
