In 2022, the Group’s revenues reached €5,852 thousand, up 26%, mainly due to strong growth in direct sales by Safe Orthopaedics, up 43%, and in subcontracted production sales by Safe medical, up 20%.

Direct sales by Safe Orthopaedics were up 43% to €2,587 thousand, with significant growth in France (up 21% to €1,385 thousand), the United Kingdom (up 25% to €160 thousand) and the United States (up 534% to €653 thousand). Germany experienced a 9% decline, due to the unavailability of part of the sales team.

Internationally, the recovery in activity is returning with a still limited increase in sales of 6% to €2,212 thousand, given the multiple local confinements still observed.

Safe medical’s sales growth, up 20% compared with 2021, is experiencing its strongest growth since its integration, by focusing on its most significant partners. The investments in clean rooms made in 2021 and in production in 2022 will ensure significant growth for this industrial activity.

It should be noted that the internalization of the production of Safe Orthopaedics kits by Safe medical has been finalized in 2022 and will ensure control of the margin and a working capital requirement correlated to the growth of Safe Orthopaedics sales..

“2022 ends with double-digit growth and a record quarter of €1.6M in sales driven by our two entities Safe Orthopaedics and Safe Medical. As a pioneer and leader in ready-to-use products, we are also proud to announce the 25,000th surgical kit sold and more than 120 sycamore cases with very promising clinical results at 12 months,” commented Pierre Dumouchel, Chairman and CEO of Safe Group. “After two years of investment in our Safe Medical production sites, we are entering 2023 with confidence. Our technologies are now 100% produced in-house, eliminating any risk of disruption during the growth phase. In addition, the worldwide launches of Sycamore and Hickory, our partnership with Wenzel in the USA and the development of SORA offer us solid growth prospects in a global market that is increasingly receptive to the benefits of Ready-to-Use.

The cash position at December 31, 2022 was €0.1 million (unaudited figures). As a reminder, the maximum remaining balance of the financing under the Alpha Blue Ocean OCEANE program amounts to €0.8 million.

It is reminded that the press release published on December 10, 2021 underlines the risks inherent to this type of financing, which is potentially highly dilutive.
