Financial status and perspectives
The company has rolled with the punch of the drop of € 2 M of sales turnover for its activity of real integrated circuit supply, related to the halt of investments on the sector of oil research due to the decline of the price of crude oil. But it now is structured for the pursuit of its growth with an enlarged customer base and acknowledged competencies, to address the society challenge for reducing power-consumption of an always growing number of electronic equipments and particularly for the "Internet of Things", alias IoT.

Financial status and perspectives
Upon the closing of the present accounts, the company has performed through a Structured Investment Vehicle by raising the amount of € 1.9 M, the prefunding of its 2015 Research Tax Credit. This has enabled it to reduce the lag-time of its suppliers’ payables and to bring down that of its social debt to € 870 k, per a negotiated schedule. It has also broadened over the year and diversified its means for enabling the financing of its whole customer account.
This structural solution for the prefunding of the Research Tax Credit should put the company in a position to lastingly improve its working capital.

About the forecasts for the current fiscal year F-17 (to be closed on March 31, 2017), the order backlog secures 32% of the year sales turnover. The success of the current year shall depend on the corporate capability to perform the rationalizing of its organization to accompany the development of targeted synergies, so as to improve the efficiency of the market launch of its innovations!
