Dalet’s Board of Directors has met on September 11th and approved the consolidated financial statements for the first semester of 2015. These financial statements have been reviewed by the Auditors.
DALET has announced consolidated revenues for the six months period ended June 30, 2015 of €21.9 million, compared to €18.4 million revenues for the same period last year (+19%). Including on a pro-forma basis €0.9 million Q1-2014 revenues from the AmberFin subsidiary acquired in April 2014, revenues for the first semester were up 13%.
Gross Margin (defined as revenues minus cost of goods and third-party services resold) for the semester was €17.3 million, up 16% from €15.0 million for the same period in 2014. An unfavorable mix of sales during the period impacted the gross margin rate which is 79% compared to 81% in the first semester of 2014.
Operating expenses increased over the semester by 8%. The capitalization of development direct employee costs (IAS 38 standard) less accumulated amortization generated an operating loss of €0.1 over the semester, as the capitalized amount was less than the accumulated amortization. Depreciation and Amortization include the amortization of acquired intangible assets related to the AmberFin acquisition for €0.2 million (non cash).
This resulted in an operating loss for the semester of €2.7 million, compared to an operating loss of €2.9 million for the first semester of 2014.
Net loss (attributable to Group) for the semester was €3.3 million vs. €3.2 million for the same period in 2014.
Cash (excluding restricted cash) on June 30, 2015 stood at €5.0 million, compared to € 4.9 million on December 31, 2014. Long term Debt on June 30, 2015 stood at €4.4 million, up from €4.1 million on December 31, 2014.
The consolidated financial statements for the first semester of 2015 and explanation notes are available on the company’s website (www.dalet.com), Investors section.
