By pro forma we mean the scope not including the disposal of Ciboodle that was completed in July 2012.
The net cash at the end of September amounts to €48 Million.

OUTLOOK
In 2012, the annual pro forma revenue will show a growth rate of between 6 and 7% for the full year. The operating profit will increase by over 12%.
The pro forma backlog will amount to €228 Million, in other words 27.4 months. It remains stable in relation to June 2012.
Sword has strengthened financial resources that enable to envisage acquisitions in a selective manner as of 2013 in order to maintain the coherence of the Group's product and service offering.
