  1. EBITDA = current operating income + net provisions on current assets + net provisions for risks and charges + depreciation on fixed assets - capitalized production costs.

Over the half year, the Group showed an EBITDA of 11% on revenue (or €3.9 million). The five-point EBITDA increase on revenue can be broken down as:

  • Two points corresponding to return generated on traditional business, resulting from growth with a stabilized expense level for sales and marketing;
  • Three points for the effect of the change in scope of consolidation following the acquisition of Sologlobe Logistique Inc. in October 2016.

On a Group level, the net impact of the costs of designing activated software and net allocations to depreciation and provisions amounts to - €1.9 million, compared to €0.7 million over a comparable period. Without impact on cash flow, the variation in these elements is mainly due to the cost of designing activated software minus depreciation (- €0.9 million). Hence, current operating income amounts to €2.0 million, an increase of 85%. 

After accounting for other operational expenses (not significant for the period), financial results and taxes, net profit comes in at €1.0 million.

Net increase in cash and cash equivalent -6,8 -3,9 -2,9 75%
Cash and cash equivalent, end of period 0,2 1,6 -1,4 -91%

The cash flow statement expresses the flows between March 31 and September 30, 2017, as compared to the same period last year. Between these two dates, the working capital requirements increased due to paying for annual maintenance contracts invoiced at the start of the calendar year and accounted for as revenue over the entire year.

Primarily generated by flows tied to operational activities, the improvement in free cash flow is due to a significant increase in internal financing capacity combined with faster customer payment.

It is important to note that on September 30, 2016, cash flow was impacted by taking out a medium-term loan of €4.5 million, while the corresponding investment flow (acquisition of Sologlobe Logistique Inc.) was effective during the second half of 2016/2017. After taking this reprocessing into account, data for the latest half actually reveal a notable improvement in raw cash flow (+ €3.1 million) and a variation in cash flow for the period (+1.6 million).


Performance in the latest half is partly accounted for by the acquisition of Sologlobe Logistique Inc. on October 3, 2016. Since this effect was not repeated in the second half, the five-point improvement in the EBITDA rate for the first half cannot be extrapolated over the fiscal year 2017/2018. Nevertheless, for this fiscal year, the Group anticipates a double-digit growth in revenue and improved profitability. Il the medium-term, the Group plans to maintain this dynamic in term of revenue and profitability.
