Financial situation and perspectives
During this fiscal year, the company has reinforced its working capital with an amount of 2.1 M€. This input is comprised of 50% of participative loans from BPI-France over 7 years (amortizable over five years upon a differed period of two years) and 50% of mid-term bank loans, from traditional partners, now joined by the Bank of China. This restructuring operation on the financial structure, between short-term and mid-term, has enabled the company to free-up levers for growth: recruiting for commercial development, investing in hardware and software…

Furthermore, in order to complete the reimbursement of mature debts (suppliers’ delays of 700 k€ and social dues of 450 k€ on the closing date of the present financial statements), the company holds a receivable for the 2014 Research Tax Credit of 1.9 M€, payable in June 2015.

As for the forecasts for the new fiscal year F-16 (to be closed on March 31, 2016), the order backlog secures 34% of the yearly sales turnover.
Besides, the results of F-15 present a net cash flow of 1.2 M€, versus 0.9 M€ in F-13, thus confirming the return to profitability.

The ability of the company to continue its recovery and to ensure its operating continuity remains – as for most companies – dependent on its capacity to realize its business plan over the next fiscal year.
