MAIN FINANCIAL INFORMATION
Growth in consolidated revenues reflecting the Group's new dimension
Consolidated revenues for the Group at June 30, 2013 amounted to � 15.9 million, 6.9 times revenues published at June 30, 2012. Following the acquisition of InGen BioSciences ("IBS") in December 2012, this growth reflects the new commercial dimension of the Group that, together with the development of its own products, commercializes many proprietary, licensed and partnered products. Compared to pro forma revenues of � 14.7 million at June 30, 2012, these revenues are up 8.2 %. During the first half of this year, sales of diagnostic products made by our subsidiary, InGen, rose 10.6% to � 13.6 million against � 12.3 million for the comparable period in 2012.
First synergies post-acquisition: streamlining costs and reducing losses
With synergies that were recorded in the first half as a result of the acquisition of IBS, the Group reported a decline in the relative share of general and administrative costs from 79% to 20% of revenues. In addition, the consolidation of R&D activities produced its first effects, resulting in stable expenses (+111 K �) even with one additional product in Diaxonhit's portfolio (Inoplex).
These rationalizations of expenses allow the Group to reduce its operating loss at � -3.2 million, a decrease of � 400K for the period.
Upon acquisition of IBS on December 14, 2012, Diaxonhit recorded a goodwill of � 16.9 million in its accounts. During the first half of 2013, the purchase price at the date of acquisition was reallocated among several assets ("PPA"), marketing and sales assets for � 12.9 million and R&D assets for ��979 K. Accordingly, goodwill was reduced to � 3.1 million.
Marketing and sales assets are amortized over 10 years. Accordingly, an amortization expense of � 697 K was added to marketing and sales expenses for the first semester of 2013. R&D assets will also be amortized over 10 years when the developed products will be marketed.
The remaining goodwill is also being amortized over 10 years, which led to a � 96 K amortization expenses deducted from the operating profit at June 30, 2013.
As a result, Diaxonhit recorded a net loss of � -2.7 million for the first half of 2013, down 13% compared to the loss of � 3.1 million recognized at June 30, 2012. Excluding amortization of marketing and sales assets derived from the PPA and amortization of the remaining goodwill for a total of � -793 K, the net loss for the first half of 2013 would have been ��-1.9 million.
� 5.9 million of cash at June 30, 2013
At the beginning of 2013, Diaxonhit cash position was � 9.8 million.
During the first half of 2013, changes in the Group's cash position include the following items:
Including these changes, the Group's cash position amounted to � 5.9 million at June 30, 2013.
A broad and diversified portfolio of diagnostic products in development
The acquisition of IBS expanded Diaxonhit's in vitro diagnostic development portfolio, which now includes three products :
Moreover, Diaxonhit develops companion diagnostics in cancer through its participation in both the Responsify and TEDAC projects.
Finally, in early September, Diaxonhit signed with Boehringer Ingelheim a research services contract to identify new therapeutic targets in cancer with its hGWSA proprietary platform technology. Depending on the results, Boehringer Ingelheim may acquire the rights for the development of therapeutic treatments against the newly discovered targets. This contract confirms the interest of the hGWSA discovery platform and its potential to generate revenues for Diaxonhit.
Transplantation: Diaxonhit strengthens its leading position in this market segment
With its expertise and its reference position in the field of transplantation with over 70% market share with HLA laboratory in the France, Diaxonhit renewed its contracts with the Paris Hospitals (AP-HP) and the French Blood Bank by winning two tenders for respectively � 11 million by the end of 2014 and � 13.8 million by the end of 2016.
In June, Diaxonhit strengthened its leading position in the field of transplantation by signing with XDx, an American molecular diagnostics company specializing in the development of non-invasive tests in the fields of transplantation and autoimmune diseases, an exclusive license agreement for commercialization in Europe of the AlloMap® molecular expression test.
Already marketed in the United States since 2005, AlloMap, XDx flagship product, is a diagnostic blood test used in transplant centers to monitor the risk of graft rejection in heart transplant patients. AlloMap is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), and CE marked for Europe.
With its leading position in the field of HLA testing and the upcoming launch of AlloMap in Europe (Q1 2014), Diaxonhit is now present on the entire value chain of the transplant market. The products marketed by the Group cover both biological responses, humoral and cellular, involved in graft rejection. These complementary tests are prescribed before transplantation to assess the compatibility between donor and recipient, and after transplantation to monitor rejection. Beyond the implied reference position, the presence of Diaxonhit throughout this specialty market allows the company to achieve strong synergies in terms of customers, logistics and sales organization.
Appointment of a new Chief Business Officer
Diaxonhit announced the appointment of Thomas Iff as Chief Business Officer. Thomas is responsible for the global and strategic marketing of the Group to accelerate specifically its international development.
For over ten years, Thomas Iff held the position of International Marketing Director at Bio-Rad Laboratories, a U.S. biotechnology company specializing in the development and commercialization of diagnostic tests and systems for laboratories, blood banks and industrial control laboratories.
Previously, he served as General Manager for Organon Teknika, a subsidiary of the Dutch group Akzo Nobel (News - Alert), specializing in microbiology, No. 2 worldwide in blood culture, and acquired by bioM�rieux in 2001.
In order to achieve the strategic objectives set out in the diagnostic field, Diaxonhit intends to accelerate its growth in this sector.
With continued development of its proprietary products in order to reach market stage, with the launch of innovative new licensed products such as AlloMap during the first quarter of 2014, and with the signing of new agreements for the commercialization of specialty diagnostic products, the Group is confident in its continued organic growth.
In parallel, Diaxonhit wants to benefit from the consolidation momentum of in vitro diagnostics, to accelerate its growth through acquisitions, and thus reach breakeven faster.
