Vita 34 closes 2023 with significantly better results than expected based on preliminary figures

Leipzig, 19 April 2024 – According to the final key financial figures for fiscal year 2023 available today, Vita 34 AG closed the year significantly better in terms of earnings than expected by the Management Board on the basis of the preliminary business figures from the end of January. Accordingly, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounted to EUR 5.6 million. In the publication of 31 January, the Management Board had expected EBITDA of EUR 4.0 million. The deviation is mainly related to higher positive effects from the harmonization of accounting in accordance with IFRS 15 and due to a significantly more positive assessment of the risks from hyperinflation in Turkey in the course of the annual financial statements than anticipated in the preliminary business figures.

Biotest AG opens 12th plasma collection centre in Germany

PRESS RELEASE

 

 

Biotest AG opens 12th plasma collection centre in Germany

 

  • 38 plasma collection centres in Europe to ensure long-term plasma supply

Dreieich, 19 April 2024: Biotest has officially opened its 12th plasma collection centre in Germany in Wuppertal.

In future, plasma donors will be able to donate plasma five days a week, from Monday to Friday, at the ultra-modern centre on Karlsplatz at 33 Friedrichstrasse. Friendly and dedicated staff provide an excellent service for sustainable and paperless plasma donation. The new centre is operated by Plasma Service Europe GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Biotest AG, which was founded more than 20 years ago to strengthen plasma donation in Germany.

“We are creating 27 new, highly skilled jobs at our centre. We are particularly pleased that we can now also offer donors in Wuppertal the opportunity to donate plasma close to home,” says centre manager Anja Hirner.

“We would like to thank our dedicated team, the construction companies involved and the architects for realising the project in these challenging times. Of course, we also hope that many new donors will join us to ensure the supply of life-saving medicines to patients worldwide,” emphasises Henrik Oehme, Managing Director of Plasma Service Europe GmbH.

The Managing Directors of Plasma Service Europe GmbH, Marina Hohenböken and Henrik Oehme, opened the new plasma donation centre together with the First and Second Mayor of Wuppertal, Heiner Fragemann and Rainer Spiecker, the CDU member of the Bundestag Jürgen Hardt as well as the SPD member of the state parliament, Dilek Engin, and other representatives from politics and business and exciting interview partners such as the Vice-Miss Germany Gina Rühl from Wuppertal.

“Plasma donations are invaluable for the chronically ill. At present, Germany imports plasma mainly from the USA to produce the drugs that Europe needs. In order to become independent of imports from abroad, it is important to raise public awareness of the importance of plasma donation and to create incentives for potential donors. Together, we can help to secure Europe’s own supply of life-saving plasma through regular donations,” said Jürgen Hardt, foreign policy spokesman for the CDU/CSU parliamentary group in the German Bundestag.

In addition to the management of Plasma Service Europe GmbH, patient representatives from dsai e.V., a patient organisation for congenital immunodeficiencies, and Alpha 1 Deutschland e.V. will be on hand to provide moving reports and testimonials about plasma donation. Silke Junge-Unbehauen and Barbara Pixa, for example, are two of more than four million people affected in Germany. Both women are dependent on plasma-derived medication and have received a drug made from blood plasma. “I can’t thank the plasma donors often enough. They make my life worth living,” says Silke Junge-Unbehauen, thanking the plasma donors.

Biotest is thus continuing the planned expansion of its own donation centres in Europe in order to contribute to more plasma donations after the Corona pandemic showed how much Europe depend on plasma donations from outside the EU.

The collected plasma is processed exclusively in Germany at Biotest AG in Dreieich. Regular audits in Germany ensure that the high legal and internal quality and safety requirements are met.

Biophytis announces ratio change under its American Depositary Receipt (“ADR”) program

19-Apr-2024 / 07:00 CET/CEST

Biophytis announces ratio change under its American Depositary Receipt (“ADR”) program

 

 

Paris (France) and Cambridge (Massachusetts, USA), April 19, 2024 – 07:00am CET – Biophytis SA (Nasdaq CM : BPTS, Euronext Growth Paris : ALBPS), (“Biophytis” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage biotechnology company specialized in the  development of  therapeutics for age-related diseases, today annouces that it will change the ratio of its American Depositary Shares (the “ADSs”) to Biophytis ordinary shares (the “Shares”) from one ADS representing 100 Shares, to one ADS representing 4,000 Shares (the “Ratio Change”). The effective date of the Ratio Change (the “Effective Date”) is expected to be April 23, 2024.

Pursuant to the Ratio Change, as of the Effective Date, record holders who directly hold ADRs will be required to exchange their existing ADRs for new ADRs on the basis of one new ADR for every 40 existing ADRs surrendered. The Depositary will contact ADR holders and arrange for the exchange of their existing ADRs for new ADRs. ADS beneficial holders who hold through an ADR holder intermediary need not take any action in connection with the Ratio Change. For ADS holders, the Ratio Change will have the same effect as a one-for-forty reverse ADS split. The ADSs will continue to be traded on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “BPTS”.

No new Shares will be issued in connection with the Ratio Change and this Ratio Change does not change the total number of Biophytis ordinary shares.

As a result of the Ratio Change, the trading price of the Company’s ADSs is expected to automatically increase proportionally, but the Company can give no assurance that the ADS trading price following the Ratio Change will be at least equal to the ADS trading price before the Ratio Change multiplied by the new 40:1 ratio.

Evotec and Variant Bio enter strategic partnership to discover and develop fibrosis treatments

18.04.2024 / 13:27 CET/CEST

The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.

 

  • COLLABORATION LEVERAGES VARIANT BIO’S CUTTING-EDGE GENOMIC DISCOVERY PLATFORM AND EVOTEC’S INTEGRATED END-TO-END R&D PLATFORM AND DISEASE AREA EXPERTISE TO ADDRESS UNMET MEDICAL NEED IN FIBROTIC INDICATIONS
  • COMMERCIAL TERMS INCLUDE RESEARCH FUNDING AND MILESTONES AND/OR ROYALTY PAYMENTS TO EVOTEC BASED ON THE OVERALL SUCCESS OF THE PROGRAMME

Hamburg, Germany and Seattle, USA, 18 April 2024:
Evotec SE (Frankfurt Stock Exchange: EVT, MDAX/TecDAX, ISIN: DE0005664809; NASDAQ: EVO) and Variant Bio, Inc. today announced a collaboration agreement to identify a best-in-class treatment for diseases caused by fibrosis.

Fibrosis is characterised by marked and pathogenic build-up of the tissue matrix, leading to tissue degeneration in organs, including the liver and lungs. Fibrotic disease contributes substantially to global mortality and morbidity. Despite the chronic nature of fibrotic conditions, widespread impact on various organs, and substantial disease burden, there is currently no curative treatment for these conditions.

The strategic partnership leverages Variant Bio’s cutting-edge genomic discovery capabilities and VB-Inference platform as well as Evotec’s extensive expertise in antifibrotic drug discovery. Evotec will identify best-in-class small molecules targeting a key fibrotic pathway with strong genetic support identified by Variant Bio and progress the programme towards the selection of a clinical development candidate(s) using Evotec’s integrated end-to-end R&D platform. Additionally, the collaboration includes an opportunity to evaluate unrelated nephrology targets based on human multi-omics data with Evotec’s molecular patient database (“E.MPD”).

Under the terms of the risk-sharing partnership, Evotec will receive undisclosed research funding and may receive pre-clinical and clinical milestones and/or royalties dependent on the success of the programme. This strategic framework allows Variant Bio to offset the early costs of drug development in exchange for a portion of the future upside.

Dr Matthias Evers, Chief Business Officer of Evotec, said: “We are excited to enter this collaboration with Variant Bio. Variant’s genomics-focused model which identifies novel drug targets perfectly aligns with Evotec’s data-driven approach to redefine diseases at the molecular level and enhance probability of success. We look forward to combining our complementary drug discovery platforms in a capital efficient partnership and drive new, best-in-class fibrosis treatments together.”

Andrew Farnum, CEO at Variant Bio, said: “Evotec has established and validated in vitro and in vivo models to accelerate programme timelines and is ideally positioned to advance our fibrosis programme. They have the experience and track record in converting breakthrough science into medicines that matter for patients.”

Dr David Moller, CSO at Variant Bio, added: “We are thrilled to collaborate with Evotec given their deep expertise in disease biology and their outstanding drug discovery capabilities that complement Variant Bio’s R&D team. These factors will play a critical role in the success of our pre-clinical and development goals.”

ABOUT VARIANT BIO
Variant Bio is developing life-saving therapies by studying the genes of people with exceptional health-related traits. By identifying communities with unique genetic architectures and outlier phenotypes, Variant Bio has identified novel human genetic evidence that is the basis for programs with breakthrough potential across multiple therapeutic areas.

M1 Kliniken AG publishes preliminary figures for financial year 2023:

M1 continues to grow – sales growth of over 10% to € 316,3 million; EBIT increases by 68% to € 15.7 million and the Group’s equity increases to € 143.7 million.             
 

  • Strong sales growth of 18% in the Beauty segment from € 60.2 million to € 70.8 million.
  • Four locations opened in three countries: a total of 58 M1-locations in ten countries by the end of 2023.
  • Further expansion in Eastern Europe – new specialist medical centres in Bulgaria and Romania.
  • Sales in the “Trade” segment increase by 9% from € 225.0 million to € 245.5 million. 
  • Earnings before taxes (EBT) increase by 61% from € 10.2 million to € 16.4 million.

 

Berlin, 18.04.2024 –M1 Kliniken AG (ISIN: DE000A0STSQ8) publishes preliminary IFRS figures for the financial year 2023. In the past financial year, the M1 Group further expanded its market position in the field of beauty medicine and opened four new specialist medical centres in Germany and abroad. As of 31 December 2023, the M1 clinic network thus consisted of 58 locations.

According to the preliminary figures, sales in the “Beauty” segment rose by 17.6% to over 70.8 million euros (previous year: 60.2 million euros). The EBIT margin in this segment increased from 11.7% (7.0 million euros) in the previous year to 21.9% (15.5 million euros). The domestic Beauty locations were able to increase their EBIT margin even more significantly from 18.3% to 27.9% and increase their operating result from 9.4 million euros to 15.7 million euros.

Two additional locations were opened abroad last year. The International Beauty segment generated an almost balanced operating result of € -0.19 million for the first time (previous year: loss of € 2.4 million). New store openings, particularly abroad, are initially characterised by the gradual development of the brand and regular customers and generally take around 24 months to break even. In the new locations in Eastern Europe, it was possible to break even operationally in the first year after opening (due to the lower material and personnel costs).

The M1 Group’s consolidated sales increased by 10.9% to € 316.3 million in the 2023 financial year (previous year: € 285.3 million). The result from ordinary activities (EBITDA) increased by 36.7% from € 15.4 million in the previous year to € 21 million.

The M1 Group’s operating profit in 2023 (EBIT) totalled € 15.7 million (previous year: € 9.3 million), an increase of 68.5 %.

The financial result fell slightly from € 0.9 million (2022) to € 0.8 million. Earnings before taxes (EBT) totalled EUR 16.4 million in the 2023 financial year (previous year: € 10.2 million).

 

Equity increased by € 0.6 million to € 143.7 million as of 31 December 2023 (previous year: € 143.1 million). The equity ratio fell slightly from 72.6% in the previous year to 66.8%, but still represents a very good figure.

An operating cash flow of € 8.5 million was generated in the 2023 financial year (previous year: € 20.8 million including a decrease in inventories of € 7.9 million). By taking advantage of particularly lucrative purchasing conditions, inventories increased by around € 15.8 million as of 31 December 2023. Without this increase in inventories, the operating cash flow would have amounted to € 24.3 million.

Free cash flow, taking into account payments for investments, totalled € -1.5 million (previous year: € 19.0 million). € 17.1 million of the free cash flow was used to purchase HAEMATO AG shares. Without these payments, free cash flow would have totalled € 15.5 million. The shares in HAEMATO AG increased from 68.3% to 82.0% as of 31 December 2023.

In 2024, profitable sales growth will continue at the domestic and foreign locations. The plan is to grow from the current 60 locations to around 80-100 locations by the end of 2025. The “Beauty” segment is expected to generate an EBIT margin of at least 20%.
