Update on Pixium Vision’s business

Pixium Vision continued to make significant clinical and business progress in H1 2022, including continuing implanting patients in the European PRIMAvera pivotal trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of the Prima System in patients affected by dry Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), targeting the last implantation end of 2022.

The feasibility study in the US continued to make good progress and recently broadened its clinical centers to include Stanford Medicine. Implantations of all US patients in this study are expected to complete by the end of 2022.

In January 2022, peer reviewed data was published in Nature Communications demonstrating the clinical benefit of the PRIMA System in Dry AMD patients.

Despite the downturn on the financial markets, Pixium Vision was able to secure the financing as announced July 14, 2022. The Company is continuing to build on traction gained with global investors to secure its financing pipeline into the future.

Analysis of H1 2022 results

Operating revenue amounted to €1.0 million and is comprised of a Research Tax Credit (CIR) in the amount of €1.0 million.

Current Research and Development (R&D) expenses totalled €4.1 million, compared to €3.7 million the previous year. During the first half of 2022, Pixium Vision continued to strengthen its clinical team and opened several centers in Europe as part of its PRIMAvera study. In addition, the Group continued to develop and manufacture its Prima bionic vision system to ensure the progress of its ongoing clinical studies.

Current general and administrative (G&A) expenses totalled €3.1 million in H1 2022, compared to €2.9 million in H1 2021. General and administrative expenses increased by 4.0% in H1 2022, mainly due to the costs the Group incurred for legal services in preparation of various financing options such as convertible bonds, private placement with French or international investors on Euronext Growth or on a foreign stock exchange.

In H1 2022, the Group did not recognize any marketing and sales expenses.

Operating result presented a loss of €6.1 million, which is higher than in H1 2021 (€4.8 million). Net result was a loss of €5.6 million (compared to a loss of €5.5 million in H1 2021). The loss per share is €0.12 for both periods.

Net cash outflow from operating activities increased in H1 2022 to €7.1 million, compared to €6.1 million in H1 2021. The increase in net cash outflow reflects the continuation of the PRIMAvera study, the US feasibility study, as well as the spending associated with the preparation of financing options.

Net cash flows from financing activities totalled €(0.2) million which are mainly related to the repayment of lease liabilities under IFRS16 in H1 2022. In H1 2021, financing activities reflected primarily the drawdown of 5 ORNAN tranches for a total of €6.25 million in gross proceeds under its agreement with ESGO.

Pixium Vision ended H1 2022 with a net cash position of €7.2 million, compared to €10.1 million a year earlier.

Post-period, on July 14, 2022, Pixium Vision announced the implementation of a financing of a maximum nominal amount of €30 million, and the drawdown of a first tranche with a nominal value of €5.5 million.
