HIGHLIGHTS OF THE FIRST QUARTER

  • Sales for the first quarter of 2014 is decreasing by 11.3% (-10.1% at constant exchange rate) compared to the sales for the first quarter of 2013 (in growth by 22.4% compared to 2012) which was highlighted by a high level of worldwide pathology. The lack of winter pathology substantially impacted the sales of seasonal specialties.
  • On March 31, 2014, the group's net cash position amounted 183.8 million euros versus 159.8 million euros on December 31, 2013.
  • Change in the IT department:
    After considering a restructuring plan involving around fifty employees, the General Management finally decided to cancel the plan and to study again the organization of the IT department with all the parties involved.

Given the level of activity in the first quarter and after an exceptional year 2013, the group confirms its cautiousness regarding 2014.
