    "We observed a slow down during last quarter due mainly to all the efforts the company and its employees did to obtain the final shareholder's approval to our acquisition strategy. Furthermore, the dollar weakness had an influence on our global revenues decrease for an amount of 7%. The main part of our sales are done in dollar. Nevertheless, these acquisitions done, at the end, allow us to expect the realization of all commercial synergies. Still efforts have to be done in this way but our employees and shareholders have already shown their ability to go forward." commented Sylvain Boj, Chief Executive Officer.
