J’aime le plan d’affaires de la compagnie, mais la compétition reste féroce dans le marché des imprimantes 3D. Leur produit phare date de 2014 et la compagnie opère sur un petit budget… Perso, je veux voir des résultats tangibles (revenus en hausse, profits) avant de réinvestir dans Tinkerine.
Q2 2017 Financial Highlights
• Sales revenue decrease by 4.5% to $266,276 in Q2 2017 versus $278,710 to a year ago.

• An improvement of 145% in the quarterly net cash from operating activities of $136,457 in
Q2 2017 versus deficit of $302,597 in Q2 2016.
Un trimestre correct en considérant que ce n’est pas la période où il y a beaucoup d’achats dans le secteur de l’éducation. Ils ont également réussi à diminuer leur perte de 150 000 $ comparativement au Q2 2016 en réduisant les dépenses. Les deux prochains trimestres devraient donner une bonne idée de ce que nous pouvons nous attendre de la société.
Ils ont également réussi à augmenter l’encaisse.
Les résultats sont sortis hier soir sur SEDAR. Bon trimestre dans l’ensemble en plus d’être cash-flow positif.
