The Chief Operating Officer, Agnès Venet, member of the Board of Directors, has declared that "The net Cash Flow is one of the relevant data showing the corporate health independently from the questions of Intellectual Property Development. The company thus has deployed an appropriate effort and has performed a speed-up of the rhythm of innovation necessary to prepare the future, with noticeably the opening of a subsidiary in Israel, while maintaining the Net Cash Flow at a positive level".

The order backlog has evolved, from 85 days at the closing of the first semester of the last fiscal year, to 84 days, but this backlog translates into a horizon of F-10 sales turnover higher than last year's.
This context allows to continue counting on an effective growth rate, notwithstanding the extreme uncertainty of the present context.
