After audit, operating profit for the half-year was confirmed at 10.5% of revenues, compared with 8.7% for the same period last year.

At €20.9 million, net profit for the first half represented 7.2% of revenues. The reduction in the corporate income tax rate in France, combined with the reduction in the CVAE (Company Value Added Contribution), resulted in a reduction of nearly 5 percentage points in the income tax rate.

Even after the payment of an exceptional dividend of €48.4 million, net cash (excluding IFRS 16 rental liabilities) stands at €231.4 million, compared with €228.9 million at June 30, 2020.


In a previous press release (1st half revenues), NEURONES raised its forecasts for 2021:

  • revenues of at least €570 million,
  • operating profit close to 10%.

These forecasts may be adjusted on November 3, when the third quarter revenues will be published.
