(AOF) – Significantly higher when opening, Novosite is preparing to close at 3.8% to 3,998 euros. The Franco-British champion of PCR trials released exceptional annual results this morning and recalled finishing his 2020 fiscal year without debt. Investors are worried about the outlook. Inevitably, with the decline in test sales, the group has been in conflict since April with its main customer (50% of sales), the second contract initially signed with British Health and Social Affairs (DHSC). September.
Novasite supplied goods to the UK, but the UK was not satisfied. At the announcement of this conflict, the title lost one-third of its value in one session. And because the action does not stop retreating. For investors who voted for the title, the cold showers are expected to grow to more than 50 a year, bringing in nearly 14 euros.
This morning, the group recalled a controversy involving fourth-quarter 2020 revenue of 12 129.1 million for a particular product. He sought independent legal assistance and an arrangement was made in the financial statement based on the current assessments of the Board of Directors regarding this claim to the DHSC.
Novasite, however, agreed that DHSC’s request for a refund under a limited insurance guarantee would be successful, but not possible. The impact of its cash flow depends on the success of the claim and the negotiating conditions for repayment.
In addition, the turnover for the fourth quarter of 2020, தயாரிப்பு 24 million related to the product issued to the DHSC, is pending the date of signing of the invoice financial statements and the recovery of this amount will depend on the outcome of the conflict.
