SYSTRAN's  consolidated sales for the first half  of the year amounted to 5,786
K€, an increase of 7.1% as compared with 2012.

During  the first six months of 2013, the  salaries and wages and other expenses
decreased  respectively by -10.4% and -5.1%  as compared with the first semester
2012. A  330 K€ tax credit for research  activities was accounted for during the
first semester of 2013 as compared with 340 K€ for the first semester 2012.

The  consolidated current operating income amounted to 1 033 K€ as compared with
202 K€ for the first semester of 2012.

The  operating income amounted to  223 K€ - because a  provision was recorded to
cover  risks related to the  dispute with the European  Commission - as compared
with 181 K€ during the first semester of 2012. Financial income amounted to 206
K€.  Consolidated net income amounted  to 132 K€ as compared  with 295 K€ in the

Total  shareholders' equity amounted to 15 million  Euros as compared with 14.8
million  Euros as of December 31, 2012. The Company's net cash position amounted
to  11.2 million Euros at June 30, 2013, as  compared with 22.9 million Euros on
December  31, 2012. This difference is due to the reimbursement of the amount of
12,001,000 Euros  to the  European Commission  as per  the judgment  dated April
18, 2013 from  the European  Court of  Justice. Total  group debt amounted to 1
million  Euros  as  of  June  30, 2013 against  0.4 million  Euros  on  December
31, 2012.

Total  sales  amounted  to  5,786 K€,  divided  between  3,597 K€  for  Software
Publishing and 2,189 K€ for Professional Services.

 Consolidated Sales      5,786    100.0%    5,402    100.0%        +7.1%

During  the  first  semester  of  2013, license  sales  amounted to 3,597 K€ and
represent 62.2% of total sales, an increase of 31.6% as compared with 2012. This
growth is due to a large order received from the US Government.

Professional  Services sales totalled  to 2,189 K€ and  represent 37.8% of total
sales,  a decrease  of 17.9% as  compared with  the first semester 2012. However
SYSTRAN  Software Inc. has suffered from the  decrease of the orders coming from
the  US Government and backlog orders on June 30, 2013 is much lower as compared
to the one of June 30, 2012.

More  than half of SYSTRAN sales are  in North America. Sales are distributed as

  By geographical area of asset location | 1st sem. 2013 | 1st sem. 2012
  (in thousands of euros)                |               |
  Europe                                 |         1,717 |         2,287
  North America                          |         3,642 |         3,115
  Other geographical areas               |           427 |
  Total sales                            |         5,786 |         5,402


In  2013 SYSTRAN  plans  to  expand  the  sales  team  to develop revenue in all
business  segments. SYSTRAN will also launch new version of its server solutions
and cloud services for corporate customers.

Taking  into  account  the  level  of  existing  orders and the current economic
environment,  sales for the  second semester 2013 should  be less than the first
semester 2013 and the second semester 2012.

Dispute with the European Commission

On  April 18, 2013, the European Court of Justice  set aside the judgment of the
European  General Court ordering the European  Commission to pay SYSTRAN a lump-
sum amount of 12,001,000 Euros as compensation for the material damage sustained
by it.

The  European Court of Justice has declared  that "the General Court should have
declined jurisdiction and invited the parties to refer to the competent national
courts,  designated  by  the  various  contracts  concerning the SYSTRAN machine
translation  system,  concluded  by  SYSTRAN  and the Commission" (Press release
dated April 18, 2013 from the Court of Justice of the European Union).

Furthermore,  the  European  Court  of  Justice  has given final judgment on the
dispute and has declared and judged:
 1. The judgment of the European General Court dated December 16, 2010 in the
    case T-19/07 (SYSTRAN S.A. and SYSTRAN Luxembourg / Commission) is annulled.
 2. The action for damages of SYSTRAN SA and SYSTRAN Luxembourg is dismissed.
 3. SYSTRAN S.A. and SYSTRAN Luxembourg will have to pay the cost incurred by
    the European Commission before the European Court of Justice and also before
    the European General Court.

On June 26, 2013, SYSTRAN reimbursed the amount of 12,001,000 Euros to the
European Commission.  This amount was kept on a safe account and its refund
doesn't endanger the company.
Following   this   decision,   SYSTRAN  has  recorded  a  provision  for  risks,
corresponding  to the cost incurred by the Commission before the European Courts
on  one hand,  and to  compensatory interests  - based on 12,001,000 Euros which
have  been reimbursed to the Commission -  claimed by the European Commission on
the other hand.

Furthermore,  SYSTRAN has  lodged a  new action  against the European Commission
before  the Court  of Luxemburg.  The assignation  was delivered to the European
Commission on June 19, 2013.
