Kalray: informatie over Covid-19

GRENOBLE, Frankrijk– (BUSINESS WIRE) – Kalray (Parijs: ALKAL) (Euronext Growth Parijs: ALKAL), een pionier in processors voor nieuwe intelligente systemen, deelt de status van zijn activiteit en de voortzetting van zijn activiteit na de verschillende gezondheidsmaatregelen die genomen zijn door de Franse regering.

De impact van de Covid-19-epidemie op Kalray’s onderzoeks- en ontwikkelingsactiviteit, die niet te afhankelijk is van zijn leveranciers, zal naar verwachting beperkt zijn en Kalray hoopt dat het zich aan zijn ontwikkelingsplan kan houden. De ontwikkelingsteams zijn volledig operationeel dankzij telewerk, dat werd ingesteld zodra de insluiting op maandag 16 maart in Frankrijk werd aangekondigd. Het bedrijf maakt tot op heden geen gebruik van technische werkloosheid.

Kalray: Information About Covid-19

GRENOBLE, France–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Kalray (Paris:ALKAL) (Euronext Growth Paris : ALKAL), a pioneer in processors for new intelligent systems, is sharing the status on its activity and the continuation of its activity following the various health measures taken by the French government.

The impact of Covid-19 epidemic on Kalray’s research and development activity, which is not too dependent on its suppliers, is expected to be limited and Kalray is hopeful it will be able to stick to its development roadmap. The development teams are fully operational thanks to telework, which was put in place as soon as the containment was announced in France on Monday March 16. The company does not use technical unemployment to date.

However, the global health situation related to the Covid-19 epidemic and the containment measures implemented in many countries are likely to slow down business cycles, which could delay the deployment of some of company’s projects. At this stage, Kalray is currently assessing all the impacts of this crisis on its business and its financial forecasts. The company is working with its partners as well, who are themselves assessing the impact of the crisis on their own activities.

In such context, and even if Kalray’s cash position remains solid (€ 15.7 million at December 31, 2019, reinforced by NXP investment), the company is taking additional measures in order to increase its financial visibility by limiting certain investments and by requesting bank loans as part of the support measures implemented by the Government. Nevertheless, Kalray confirms that its current cash position, including the NXP investment just announced, should allow the company to develop its technology roadmap, including developments related to the NXP strategic partnership, as well as the commercial deployment, beyond the next twelve months.

On April 20, as previously announced, the company will comment on its 2019 results as previously announced. Within this timeframe, Kalray hopes to be in a position to provide more details on the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic crisis on its business, which, as it constitutes a post-closure event, will have no impact on its 2019 accounts.
