Perspectives

On the date of closure of the previous semester financial statements at the end of March, the going concern of the company and the realization of their cash management plan were essentially relying on their capability to achieve the sales budget in 2013. Meanwhile preserving the commitment of banks’ support is essential, be it for the renewal of short-term credits or for the grant of new loans aiming at the improvement of their working capital.

The year sales turnover has increased of 17.7% over the previous fiscal year, which translates into a significant improvement of their profitability, and in particular of their gross cash flow.

As for cash management, on the date of closure of the present financial statements on the 28th of November:

  • the approaches are in process for resetting bank contributions, for reinforcing the operating capital or for raising loans;
  • the lag-times on deadlines, mostly for suppliers, wages and social and payroll burdens have been limited to about 1.5 M€ of negotiated arrears. Cashing-in the 2012 Research Tax Credit, expected around the 5th of December, shall settle most of these arrears, the final regularization of this situation being expected before the end of March 2014 on the basis of the latest cash management forecasts.

The commercial forecast and the order backlog allow to count on a new two-digit growth of the sales turnover. The corporate capability to realize their forecasts and to secure the continuation of bank support continues to be the key element for the new fiscal year.
