Press release




• Annual sales of products and services up +41% to €1.8 million

• Fourth-quarter sales of products and services: €674 thousand


Bagneux (France), January 17, 2018 – Genomic Vision (FR0011799907 – GV), a company specializing in the development of diagnostic tests for the early detection of cancers and genetic diseases and for life sciences research (LSR) applications, today announced its revenue and cash position[1] at December 31, 2017.

[1] Unaudited data.

As platform sales contracts may include clauses enabling buyers to return products within 2 months, under certain conditions, the Company analyzes the probability of the risk of a return when determining the revenue recognition by taking into account its knowledge of the client and the situation known at the closing date.

Frédéric Tarbouriech, CFO of Genomic Vision, commented: “The fourth quarter of 2017 saw buoyant growth in sales of consumables and services (+56%), notably on the LSR market segment. Despite weaker than expected growth in sales of our platforms over the last quarter, in 2017 we generated total revenue of more than €2 million, an increase of +36%, and expanded our installed base to 14 platforms. Given the ongoing very strong demand for our molecular combing products and services, we are confident that we will continue to record dynamic growth in 2018.”

Total revenue from sales









Sales of products and services were down 19% to €674 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2017, essentially reflecting the booking of revenue from just 2 FiberVision® platforms, compared with 3 platforms (2 of them on the research market) sold in the fourth quarter of 2016. The ongoing strong growth in sales of consumables, small equipment and services (+56% to €293 thousand) partially offset this negative base effect.


By market, the analysis of sales was as follows:

  • on the LSR market: €397 thousand recorded through the sale of a platform to a prominent Italian research center in oncology and the continual ramping up of sales of services, notably for the DNA replication study;
  • on the IVD segment: €277 thousand mainly corresponding to the sale of a FiberVision® platform to the Timone hospital in Marseille to replace its previous platform and to the launch of FSHD activity in China in a medical center with AmCare Genomics.


Total revenue was €812 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2017, including €138 thousand in R&D revenue from Quest Diagnostics corresponding to the distribution throughout the year of license payments and to a first payment on a project currently under discussion.


Over the full year 2017:

  • sales of products and services increased by +41% to €1.8 million, driven by the sale of 5 platforms versus 3 in 2016 and by the ongoing growth in sales of consumables, small equipment and services;
  • the number of installed platforms increased from 9 at the end of 2016 to 14 at the end of 2017.

Financial structure at December 31, 2017

Genomic Vision had cash and cash equivalents of €2.0 million at December 31, 2017, versus €1.0 million at September 30, 2017. This cash position includes €1.4 million of 2016 research tax credit cashed-in in October 2017, the pre-financing of 2017 research tax credit for an initial tranche of €0.6 million, and €1.5 million from the drawdown of the fifth and sixth tranches of convertible notes with warrants. Net fourth-quarter cash burn was €2.5 million.


Given the €6.5 million in additional financing available in the form of convertible notes with warrants, the terms of which have been renegotiated to provide greater flexibility, as well as the measures implemented to reduce operating costs, Genomic Vision has the necessary resources to continue, over the next 12 months, its targeted expansion in the replication markets for the pharmaceutical industry, safety control in genome editing and the sale of molecular combing equipment and services for academic research, while stepping up the marketing of its innovative IVD diagnostic solutions.
