Total revenue from activity









  • During the third quarter of 2018, sales of products and services were down 56% at €194 thousand, including:€166 thousand generated on the LSR market (+3% compared to the third quarter of 2017), corresponding to sales of consumables and services, notably in the field of DNA replication and gene editing quality control;
  • €28 thousand generated on the IVD market from sales of the FSHD test in France and China and from royalties paid by Quest Diagnostics, which markets this test in the United States. This 90% decrease compared to the third quarter of 2017 was due to the lack of FiberVision® platform sold over the quarter whereas one platform was sold during the same period of 2017. 


Total revenue from activity for the third quarter was €658 thousand (-6%), given R&D revenue from Quest Diagnostics of €206 thousand (+175%) with the achieving of the second milestone of the SMA project (see press release of September 10, 2018) and other revenue of €258 thousand, corresponding to tax credits (research tax credit, innovation tax credit, competitiveness and employment tax credit) and R&D subsidies.


Over the first 9 months of 2018, sales of products and services were down 41% at €655 thousand as no platform was sold over the period.


Restated for the sale of 3 platforms during the first 9 months of 2017, sales of products and services were up 30% in the first 9 months of 2018, reflecting solid demand from existing clients, the development of sales of instruments and consumables on the LSR market and the strong appeal of the services offer deployed among industrial and academic clients.


Financial structure at September 30, 2018

Genomic Vision had cash and cash equivalents of €1.7 million at September 30, 2018, compared with €1.0 million at June 30, 2018. This amount, which includes €2 million from the drawdown of two tranches (9thand 10th) of convertible notes with warrants during the third quarter, shows a net cash burn of €1.4 million over the period.

On October 10, 2018, the Company carried out the drawdown of an 11th tranche of convertible notes with warrants for €1 million, and still has an additional €1.5 million available via this flexible financing line in accordance with the conditions indicated in the Company’s prospectus approved by the AMF on March 28, 2017 under number 17-114 and under contractual conditions, including timeline conditions.
