Állami Nyomda wins order from Hungary to print excise stamps

Állami Nyomda Nyrt, a Hungarian printer that makes the country's election ballots, won an order worth Ft 1.7 billion (€6.8 million) from the country's government to print excise stamps.

Budapest-based Állami Nyomda will print the stamps used on alcoholic-beverage bottles and cigarette boxes for the country's customs and finance authority through the end of this year, it said in a statement on the Web site of the Budapest Stock Exchange (BÉT). Állami Nyomda is eastern Europe's second-largest security printer by sales behind Poland's state-owned PWPW SA. The Hungarian company's clients include governments, banks and phone companies in Albania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia and Slovakia. The shares fell 2.6% to Ft 6,615  as of 12:39 p.m. in Budapest. They have gained 9.4% in the past 12 months. (Bloomberg)
