The balance sheet has been strengthened with equity at €55.2 million (+20%) and the net debt, including "COVID" social debts and state-guaranteed loans, downs to €10.9 million, i.e. -47.8% in one year.

The aerospace division benefited in the 2nd quarter from the beginning of a recovery in commercial aviation, the resumption of activity in Germany after restructuring, and good activity in business aviation and space.

The simulation division suffered the consequences of the ransomware which froze the railway activity for one month and has cost approximately €1M.
The vehicle division is going on its commercial investments in protection vehicle offer against improvised explosive.
