La Waalre, April 16th, 2018 - Catalis SE hereby publishes the audited financial figures for the 2017 fiscal year. During 2017 the Catalis Group has built upon the strong foundations laid down in the prior year to consolidate our position in the games testing market and develop our publishing business. The Group has continued to reduce external debt levels and this now provides us with a strong platform for growth.
In the fiscal year 2017, Catalis Group generated total sales of Euro 24.6m (2016: Euro 19.0m) with an operating profit of Euro 1.8m (2016: operating profit of Euro 1.2m).
Of the 2017 revenue Euro 14.6m (2016: Euro 15.3m) was attributable to the Testing Division (quality assurance) and Euro 10.0m (2016: Euro 3.7m) was attributable to the Publishing Division (video games publishing and development). In the fiscal year 2017, the Group's operating profit amounted to Euro 1.8m (2016: Euro 1.2m). The Testing Division contributed operating profit of Euro 1.3m (2016: Euro 2.6m) and the Publishing Division contributed Euro 2.6m (2016: Euro 0.5m).
As at December 31, 2017, Catalis Group's total assets amounted to Euro 16.8m (2016: Euro 14.0m) mainly reflecting an increase of trade receivables.

In terms of equity and liabilities, the Group's total shareholder equity increased to Euro 5.3m (2016: Euro 4.4m) from a small capital increase in 2017 and the retained earnings attributable to shareholders. The Group continued to pay down debt (Euro 1.4m) but this was offset by an increase in trade and other payables of Euro 3.2m. Current liabilities were Euro 8.7m at 31 December 2017 (2016: Eur7.3m).
