Achievements

Exceeding forecasts, the year 2021 was very good, both in terms of organic growth and profitability. The audit confirmed an operating profit of 10.6% of revenues. At €37.7m, net profit (group share) is up by 22% compared to 2021 (and up by 22.4% compared to 2019).

At €264.6m (i.e. €11/share), net cash has been almost entirely rebuilt after the payment (in June 2021) of an exceptional dividend of €48.4m.

Outlook

As usual, forecasts for the current year will be posted along with the Group's 1st quarter revenues (on May 11, after the closing of the stock exchange).

NEURONES' long-standing expertise in cloud computing, digital services and cybersecurity is an asset which enables the company to benefit from the acceleration of the digital transformations in progress.

At the Shareholders’ Meeting on June 2, the Board will suggest:

  • adopting a regular and predictable distribution policy for the coming years,

  • starting with the payment of a dividend of €1 per share for the year 2021.
