EBITDA (1)   2,9  3,0 -0,1 -4%
  1. EBITDA = current operating income + net provisions on current assets + net provisions for risks and charges + depreciation on fixed assets - capitalized production costs.

The Group has recorded stable EBITDA of 5% of revenue, including:

  • €2.1 million on a comparable basis, a reduction of €0.9 million, primarily due to an increase in the Group's Sales & Marketing resources,
  • €0.8 million originating from Sologlobe's North American business over the first 6 months of consolidation, from October 3, 2016, to March 31, 2017.

On a Group level, the net impact of the costs of activated software and net allocations to depreciation and provisions amounts to - €0.9 million, compared to €+0.3 million for the previous fiscal year. The variation in these items, with no cash flow impact, relates to reversals of provisions recorded for the previous fiscal year following the switch of old debts into irrecoverable debts and the outcome of certain disputes, as well as amortization recorded since the past fiscal year for investment in relocating a site. Hence, current operating income amounts to €2.0 million. 

Other operating expenses and revenues, amounting to -€0.6 million are singled out in the income statement for their non-recurring nature. For the past fiscal year, they equate specifically to expenses relating to acquisitions. It should not be forgotten that operating expenses for the previous fiscal year related primarily to a site relocation (- €0.8 million) as well as part of the acquisition price for the company GMI Connectivity to be recorded in the income statement(- €0.3 million).

After taking account of the financial income statement and tax (which has increased by € 0.6 million, due to the impact on deferred taxes of the future reduction in corporate tax rates), the Group's net income reached breakeven point for the fiscal year 2016/2017 (including - €0.5 million on a comparable basis with the previous fiscal year and + €0.5 million generated by Sologlobe).

An improvement in net debt of €0.7 million before taking account of financing for Sologlobe (€4.5 million)

Cash and cash equivalent, end of period 6,9 5,5 1,5 27%

Our cash flow for the fiscal year 2016/2017 was primarily characterized by:

  • Stability of internal financing capacity,
  • A favorable variation in WCR of €1.7 million (stability of debt indicating an improvement in DSO combined with an increase in year-end DPO),
  • investment and financing flows, the variation in which, compared to N-1, represents the acquisition and financing of Sologlobe.


The growth dynamic associated with the recurrence of SaaS business, as well as international development and the launch of the new "Generix Supply Chain HUB" platform in October, allows the Group to foresee double-digit revenue growth and an improvement in the level of profitability for the fiscal year 2017/2018.

*Monthly recurring revenue after taking into account contracts that are signed but which have not started yet and cancellations that have not yet taken effect.
