French to English translations [PRO]
Bus/Financial - Accounting
French term or phrase: mérou/mérouesque
The only definitions I can find for these words relate to a fish or an African language, neither one of which has anything to do with my context.
The context is an email about an imaging company's accounts. The term relates to a bonus.

L’intégralité ou presque du résultat 2014 avait été gardée en fonds propres, il me semble qu’on avait distribué environ 12K par mérou.

Personnel: c’est le plus gros poste…. il intègre des primes pour le staff à hauteur de 2K nets par employé sur l’année,…Ce poste est aussi générateur de CIR [crédit impôt recherche], le cout est donc d’environ 350K une fois le CIR enlevé. Pas de sur primes mérous dans ce montant.

Le résultat devrait donc être avec ce CA de 200K, voire plus. Ce qui laisse augurer de belles primes merouesque si tout va bien.

explain as an adjective

I found on the internet this word was used to refer to someone who has a big mounth and small tail (maybe to imply talking too much but without foundation).
I also found that it is to refer to something that eats like this fish by swallowing its prey (maybe something like an account or customer that eats the funds or resources)
Just an idea of using an adjective if it fits into the whole context...
