The net financial indebtedness as at 31 December 2014 was of €17,6m as against €15,4m as at 31 December 2013, and the increased of €2.2m was due to major investments which were mostly self-financed.
The net financial debt as at 31 December 2014 increased to €17.6m as against €15.4m as at 31 December 2013, and this was due to investments which were mostly self-financed thanks to a satisfactory cash flow and the effective management of working capital requirements.
The cash position remained stable as at 31 December 2014 at €16.4m (€16.6m as at 31 December 2013) and the financial structure remains solid.
Outlook for 2015
The 2014 financial year saw the group continue to improve in terms of its qualitative and quantitative positioning on the market across the entirety of its Large Account activities :
Data Intelligence (Business Intelligence, Information Management, Big Data & Analytics, CPM/EPM),
Digital Experience (Digital Strategy and Performance, Digital Commerce, Customer Relations & Digital CRM), and Management & Transformation - and of its Mid-Market activities : integration of ERP/CRM/BI solutions for the small and medium enterprises/medium and large enterprises segment.
For Eric Cohen, the President and CEO, "Our portfolio of offerings, which was further improved in 2014, is well in place and perfectly suited to the expectations of our clients. We should thus continue to achieve above-market growth for the 2015 financial year, notably through our ability to create value thanks to our cross-activity synergies : Data, Digital and Management Consulting.
For our Mid-Market activities, in market conditions which are still challenging, the 2015 financial year's business should be sustained by requirements linked to the new DSN (Nominative Social Declaration/Déclaration Sociale Nominative) regulations."
Keyrus will publish its first quarter 2015 revenues after market close on 13 May 2015.
