it seems like this report from Mobotix, is not a normal financial statement describing what we called "Q3 = july + august + september". am i right?

Undisclosed, what do you mean by "not a normal financial statement?"

Their financial calendar is slightly off from the normal calendar. For instance, this report covers 'April 1, 2013 to June 30, 2013' where calendar Q3 is July / August / September as you note.

The numbers and trends are perfectly valid as they compare as the same 3 months from previous years.
