Sales of products and services increased by +37% to €631 thousand in the first half of 2019, notably thanks to the sale of a FiberVision® platform to the laboratories of University of Oxford in the first quarter of the year.

By market, the sales analysis is as follows:

  • on the LSR segment: +57% to €502 thousand thanks to the sale of the FiberVision® platform to the University of Oxford;
  • on the IVD segment: -10% to €129 thousand, due to the temporary slowdown of the FSHD test at Quest Diagnostic, despite a substantial increase in sales in China via the Company’s partner AmCare.

Total revenue from sales for the first half of 2019 was €781 thousand (+28%), including €75 thousand from Quest Diagnostics corresponding to the distribution throughout the year of license payments.

1 Unaudited data

Total revenue from activity for the first half of 2019 was €1,135 thousand, once other revenue of €354 thousand corresponding to tax credits (research tax credit, innovation tax credit) and the end of the R&D subsidy relating to the H2020 BeyondSeq program are taken into account, down 24% compared with the first half of 2018.

Financial structure at June 30, 2019

Genomic Vision had cash and cash equivalents of €0.6 million at June 30, 2019 compared with €3.2 million at December 31, 2018. This figure takes into account:

  • the reimbursement of the interest-free loan from Quest Diagnostics in the fall of 2018 for €0.3 million;
  • a €1.5 million bridging loan granted by Winance, repaid via a capital increase through the offsetting of loans subscribed to by Winance within the framework of the drawdown of the first €1.5 million tranche of the reserved ABSA (shares with equity warrants attached) issue in April 2019.

Cash burn over the half year was €3.8 million, including the social restructuring costs provisioned at December 31, 2018 for €0.4 million.

On July 9, 2019, Genomic Vision carried out a €1 million capital increase via the issuance of 10,000,000 new shares at the nominal price of €0.10 within the framework of the second tranche of ABSA warrants. The Company has a remaining balance of €2.5 million on this equity financing line that can be exercised in accordance with the characteristics indicated in the Prospectus granted visa number 19-122 by the AMF French stock market authority on March 29, 2019, and notably under the contractual and legal conditions whose schedule and share price conditions are described in paragraph 4.1 of the Prospectus.

Genomic Vision is studying various options to secure additional means of financing in order to extend its financial visibility over the next 12 months.

The Company is postponing the publication of its full first-half results until the end of September 2019, once the accounts have been approved by the Management Board and reviewed by the Supervisory Board.
