The company restates that, at the General Assembly of January 13, 2014, the modification of the closing date of fiscal years has been voted to set it on March 31. The exceptional fiscal year started on October 1, 2013 was therefore closed on March 31, 2014, i.e. with a total duration of six months.

The consolidated sales turnover, audited for fiscal year F-14, ended on March 31, reaches the amount of 8,336 k€, demonstrating a growth rate of 24% with respect to the 6,735 k€ over the same period of the previous fiscal year. The operating result is almost balanced at -55 k€, versus a loss of -794 k€ at the closing of the same period of the previous fiscal year, and the net result is positive at 307 k€ versus the loss of -234 k€ last year.
In line with the previous fiscal year and with their strategy, this semester is noticeable by the continuation of commercial investments and of R&D projects, for the growth by virtual components, by custom integration services and by the supply of fabless real components.

As for the lag-times on deadlines for suppliers’ debts, they are contained around 400 k€.

Beyond that period, the reinforcement of operating funds remains necessary and the approaches toward increasing the working capital or raising loans are in process.
The Backlog secures the next semester in line with the two previous ones and a lasting return of profitability with a healthy Gross Cash Flow.
