Bus/Financial - Finance (general)
French term or phrase: CA n-1
This is from a power point presentation about a company with a list of financial details.

Here is the original:

CA n : 10 M€ Rex n : 1,9 M€ Dettes nettes : 3,7 M€ (75% Oseo)
CA n-1 : 7,9 M€ Rex n-1 : 1,5 M€

CA is chiffre d'affaires and Rex is EBIT, but I'm not sure how translate n and n-1, where n is the current year and n-1 is the previous year.

Any ideas?

Thanks!
