Regulatory News:

Advicenne (Euronext Growth Paris ALDVI - FR0013296746), a specialty pharmaceutical company dedicated to developing and commercializing innovative treatments for those suffering from rare renal diseases, today reports its semi-annual financial results as of June 30, 2022, as approved on September 20, 2022 by the Board of Directors. The semi-annual financial report is available on the Company’s website: www.advicenne.com.

Didier Laurens, Chief Executive Officer of Advicenne, highlighted: “If during the first half of 2022 we completed the operational rationalization of Advicenne through the consolidation of all our activities in one single premise in Paris with immediate impact on our cash consumption, the period was mostly remarkable for Sibnayal’s progress. We are particularly satisfied with the 15% increase in sales reported and achieved prior to any commercial effort, which marks Sibnayal®’s added value to prescribers and patients. With more than 75 hospitals already ordering Sibnayal® in Europe, we expect sales to significantly accelerate in the second half with the geographic expansion of sales for which we work closely with our partners. Our ambition is to make Sibnayal® available to the largest number of patients and obtain the best conditions for registration, prices and reimbursement. The second half should mark a further acceleration of our flagship product given its entry into new territories. In terms of funding, we estimate our financial visibility through the third quarter of 2023, based on our cash and outlook.”

  • Revenues amounted to €1.93 million, up 10.7% as compared with H1 2021. Sales of Likozam® and Levidcen®, licensed by third parties, and Sibnayal®, reached €1.55 million (+14%). Sibnayal® sales increased by 15% to €0.64 million over the period.
  • Operating losses in the first six months of 2022 amounted -€4.4 million (vs. -€7.5 million in H1 2021). R&D expenses are mainly allocated to the on-going development of ADV7103 in the United States. The 34% decrease of R&D expenses is mainly explained by the end of clinical development of ADV7103 in Europe in connection with obtaining MA. In total, R&D costs amount to €3 million. G&A expenses are also down sharply and reflect the effects of the reorganization of activities, on a single Parisian site, now finalized, and the tight control of expenses.
  • Financial result is a loss of €0.4 million at 30 June 2022, resulting of an €0.7 million interest charges mainly related to the first €7.5 million tranche of the EIB loan. These charges are partly offset by an overall net currency gain of €0.3 million, resulting from the activity and financing of the US subsidiary.
  • Net Loss was significantly reduced at €4.81 million as of June 30, 2022, compared to a net loss of €7.99 million over the first six months of 2021.
  • Net cash flows from operations in H1 2022 and H1 2021 amounted to €-5.13 million and € -8.53 million respectively. The change in 2022 mainly relates to the increase in the contribution of revenue, the decrease in clinical research expenditures in Europe and the United Kingdom, and overall control of general expenses.
  • Net cash flows from investments amounted to €0.22 million in the first half of 2022 (vs. €0.46 million in H1 2021), reflecting the investments in the company’s production tool as well as the result of regrouping on a single site in Paris
  • As of June 30, 2022, Cash and Cash equivalent stood at €7.29 million. As of the date of the current press release, financial visibility runs through the third quarter of 2023 (see Chapter 5.2 of the 2022 Half-Year Financial Report)
