The group posted EBITDA of 8.1% of revenue (€5.7 million) for the year, an increase of 3.6 points compared to the previous financial year due to:
- 2 points by Generix Group North America entering the scope of activity on October 3, 2016 (impacting 12 months in 2017/2018 versus 6 months in 2016/2017);
- 1.6 points in organic profit growth, the result of growth in a context of stabilization of operating expenses for sales & marketing.
At Group level, the net impact of the activation of software development costs and net depreciation and provisions amounts to -€ 2.8 million compared to -€ 0.8 million as at March 31, 2017. The change in these posts had no impact on cash flow, mainly related to the cost of software development, less depreciation (-€ 1.0 million) and net provisions on current assets (- € 0.5 million). Current operating income nevertheless amounted to €2.9 million, up 41%.
Other operating expenses and income, of -€ 0.7 million, correspond to the initial price supplement paid in connection with the acquisition of Generix North America. As a reminder, the operating expenses of the previous fiscal year corresponded to acquisition-related expenses.
After considering the financial result and the tax effect, net profit amounted to €1.2 million, a clear improvement over the previous year.
