A decisive second semester to be closed on march 31 shall make Dolphin Integration’s results

For its mid-year status on September 30, 2015, the company presents a negative operating result of 787 k€, but positive of 188 k€ after Tax credit, and a slightly negative Gross Cash Flow of 166 k€. The enterprise’s capability to broaden its market to new customers has already enabled to partially compensate the brutal impact of the drop of the oil price.
As for the sales turnover, the Order Portfolio forecast that the second semester will contribute the expected bounce to reach the objective of yearly growth.

Situation and financial perspectives
This tense context has not enabled the company to finalize the reimbursement of mature debts (suppliers’ delays of 400 k€ and social dues of 700 k€ on the date of closing the present statements), but it is compensated with its right to the Research Tax Credit 2015 estimated at 1.9 M€, to be cashed-in in June 2016.
The company’s capability to achieve its recovery remains of course dependent on its performance to accomplish its business plan for the current year, which today is secure at 87% by the order portfolio executable before fiscal year-end.
