La Waalre, August 8th, 2016 - Catalis SE hereby publishes audited financial figures for the 2015 fiscal year. 2015 was a year of significant structural changes with the disposal of Testronic Belgium whose activity was not aligned with the main business of Testronic, and the impairment of Kuju goodwill (a non cash item) impacting Catalis balance sheet and income statement.
In the fiscal year 2015, Catalis Group generated revenue from continuing operations of Euro 19.72m (2014: Euro 21.0m). Comparatives exclude the results of Testronic Belgium NV, which was disposed of during the year.
Revenue of Euro 14.9m (2014: Euro 14.5m) was attributable to Testronic (quality assurance), Euro 4.7m (2014: Euro 6.3m) was attributable to Kuju (video games development) and Euro 0.1m (2012: Euro 0.2m) was attributable to DDP (self-published games). The Group’s operating income (EBIT) before non-recurring costs amounted to Euro 1.1m (2014: Euro 0.9m). After deducting non-recurring items of Euro 6.2m (2014: Euro 1.8m), the Group’s operating loss was Euro -5.1m (2014: Euro -0.9m). Non-recurring items comprised a profit on the disposal of Testronic Belgium (Euro 2.9m) offset by an impairment charge of the goodwill attributable to the Kuju Group (Euro 8.2m).
The loss for the period after tax was Euro -4.86m (2014: Euro -0.9m). Testronic’s operating profit amounted Euro 1.9m (2014: Euro 1.6m), while Kuju generated an operating loss of Euro -0.03m (2014: Euro -0.41m).
At December 31, 2015, Catalis Group’s balance sheet amounted to Euro 12.57m (2014: Euro 24.54).

The Group’s total shareholder equity and liabilities decreased to Euro 4.0m (2014: Euro 8.4m) due to repayment of bank loans of Euro 5.0m and a reduction in trade and other payables of Euro 3.3m (2014: Euro 6.0m).
