Reinforcement of operating funds of 2,1 M€
The company has been granted in December 2014 all of the agreements enabling it to reinforce its operating funds with the amount of 2.1 M€ at the beginning of this calendar year 2015. This contribution is comprised of 50% through participative loans from BPI France over 7 years (depreciable over 5 years after a two-year lag-time) and of 50% of mid-term bank loans with its traditional partners who have been joined by the Bank of China.

Perspectives
This context places the company in a favorable situation to contemplate new deployments as required for the era of the Internet of Things (IoT) for which our products even ancient – designed for low power consumption – are rapidly upgraded.

The calendar year 2015 also is the 30th anniversary of the company and that of the split for the functions of Chairman and of CEO, thus ensuring a smooth transition with a rejuvenated managerial team.
