For funding this growth rate (with an increase of the need for working capital of 1.9 M€), the company has , over this fiscal year, activated two levers: the recourse to mid-term bank credit for 0.7 M€, and the transaction of buy-back on the headquarters building, also for 0.7 M€ net. The net debt thus has increased from 2.4 M€ to 3.5 M€ over the year, with a ratio of net financial debt over operating capital maintained around 30%.
