    • Adjusted EBITDA of DKK (49.5) million / USD (7.2) million

  • BioPorto continues preparations for FDA submission of an NGAL test by fourth quarter 2022

Tony Pare, BioPorto’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “The third quarter of 2022 reflected our continued focus on disciplined execution towards completion and submission of the De Novo application to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of an NGAL test for pediatric risk assessment of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI). Our data analysis and preparation of the clinical report are proceeding according to plan, and we anticipate submitting the application by fourth quarter 2022 as previously guided.”

Guidance for 2022 adjusted to reflect timing of costs
During the first nine months of 2022, BioPorto exercised appropriate cost control and deferred certain commercialization expenses, thereby reducing its costs below prior expectations. Consequently, BioPorto has revised its 2022 guidance for operating (EBIT) loss from approximately DKK (95) to (100) million down to approximately DKK (83) to (88) million, and adjusted EBITDA loss from approximately DKK (76) to (81) million down to approximately DKK (71) to (75) million. BioPorto maintains its 2022 revenue guidance of approximately DKK 24 to 27 million.
