SIGNIFICANT EVENTS SINCE 1st JANUARY 2013
From a financial point of view, the first quarter is traditionally of low activity, the dividends being mainly received during the second quarter. Consequently, the first quarter is not very representative for the whole year.
In addition, since the beginning of 2013, the Company has
- freed up and subscribed an additional amount of EUR 0.41 million in the Matignon Technology II Fund and Theodorus II and in the Nanocyl asset;
- reduced its holding in Ter Beke.
From an operational point of view, Neuhaus Holding, a 100% subsidiary of Compagnie du Bois Sauvage has announced today the acquisition of all shares of the company "Corné Port-Royal", a chocolatier founded in 1932, mainly active in Belgium and France whose development in its own market will benefit from the experience and size of the Neuhaus Group.
The results and/or trends of the principal holdings are in line with expectations.
OUTLOOK FOR THE CURRENT FINANCIAL YEAR
Maintaining its confidence in the assets quality, the Company remains vigilant with respect to the market evolution and is prudent on the outlook over the short and medium term.
