BORDEAUX, France & BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Regulatory News:

IMPLANET (Euronext Growth: ALIMP, FR0013470168, eligible for PEA-PME equity savings plans) (Paris:ALIMP), a medical technology company specializing in vertebral implants, today announced its 2022 annual revenue and its cash position at December 31, 2022.

Ludovic Lastennet, IMPLANET’s Chief Executive Officer, stated: “We ended 2022 with a strong overseas performance. Despite the slowdown we are currently experiencing on the French market, we recorded a solid financial year marked by constant growth. This performance demonstrates the strength of the various partnerships we have deployed abroad and confirms the strategic orientation we have adopted over the last two years. 2023 will be marked by the implementation of our partnership with Sanyou Medical. JAZZ® platform registration has begun in China, and we hope to be able to record the first sales of the ultrasound surgical scalpel developed by Sanyou Medical subsidiary SMTP during the first quarter of 2023. These factors give us confidence that we can achieve our targets of breaking even financially in the medium term and becoming a key player in the treatment of spine disorders, both in France and internationally”.

Fourth quarter of 2022

In the fourth quarter of 2022, following three consecutive quarters of growth, activity further increased by 16% to €2.05 million, from €1.77 million in fourth quarter 2021.

Despite activity in France still being hindered notably by hospital staff shortage issues, posted growth was driven by:

  • 181% jump in United States revenue, from €0.14 million in fourth quarter 2021 to €0.39 million in the same quarter of 2022;
  • acceleration in commercial development in the Rest of the World, with 10% growth in the fourth quarter of 2022 to €0.76 million. Export activity recorded continuous growth through all four quarters of the year.

2022 annual revenue

Over 2022 as a whole, activity increased by 31%, with revenue totaling €8.03 million vs. €6.14 million in 2021. This performance was due to both the organic growth in JAZZ activity (+31% in unit terms and +24% in value terms) and the effect of the OSD acquisition, which represented €2.89 million over the entire 2022 fiscal year compared with €2.04 million from the date of the acquisition in May 2021.

In France, activity grew by 23% from €2.71 million in 2021 to €3.33 million in 2022.

In the United States, activity increased by 16% thanks to the good performances of +17% observed in the third quarter and +181% in the fourth quarter. Revenue generated in the United States thus totaled €1.67 million in 2022 compared with €1.44 million in 2021.

In the Rest of the World, export activity was multiplied by 1.5 (+50%), with revenue rising from €1.95 million in 2021 to €2.94 million in 2022.

Cash position

At December 31, 2022, Implanet had a cash position of €0.5 million. As mentioned in the press release announcing the Company’s third-quarter revenue, Sanyou Medical has informed the Company of its irrevocable intention to exercise the warrants it holds for an amount of €2.5 million during the first quarter of 2023. Furthermore, the payment of the balance of the MADISONTM business, totaling €2.3 million, is spread over time depending on the achievement of regulatory milestones related to CE marking, with €1.5 million expected to be received during the first half of 2023.

These funds will be allocated to the commercial development of the JAZZ® range in China, the finalization of the comprehensive new range of ORION hybrid spinal fixation initiated with Sanyou Medical and the commercial deployment of the ultrasound surgical scalpel developed by SMTP Technology Co, a Sanyou Medical subsidiary.
