- Better profitability despite the inflation
- Confirmed growth outlook for the 2022 financial year
- Increase in services provided to platforms operated on behalf of third parties
EVRY, FRANCE, TUESDAY OCTOBER 18TH 2022, 7.30AM – IntegraGen (FR0010908723 – ALINT – Eligible PEA PME), IntegraGen, a company specializing in the decryption of the human genome, which carries out interpretable genomic analyzes for academic and private laboratories and develops diagnostic tools in oncology and part of OncoDNA Group, today announced its half results for the period ending June 30, 2022. The interim accounts were approved by the company’s Board of Directors which met on October 14th, 2022.
Bernard Courtieu, CEO IntegraGen, said: « After two years strongly impacted by the pandemic and, in particular, a difficult year 2021 in all respects, 2022 should mark a form of return to normal. However, the economic context has been made difficult due to inflation, which has an impact on the purchases of reagents and energy, in an overall economic context that is, to say the least, uncertain. However, IntegraGen’s financial results in the first half of 2022 are again clearly improving both in terms of turnover and operating profit. This is explained in particular by the increase in the activities of the external platforms operated by IntegraGen, as well as by that of the genomic services carried out in our laboratory in Évry. The commercial synergies with the OncoDNA Group are beginning to generate growth with new customers identified by the Group, and confirm the interest of this operation. We would like to thank all our customers who have remained loyal to us during the pandemic period and also, above all, all the laboratory and development employees who, through their dedication, have enabled IntegraGen to successfully pursue its development while contributing to the projects of the researchers as well as clinicians and, ultimately, to improving patient care. »

Excluding the recharge of personnel costs to the parent company (€351K), revenue was €6,413k, representing a growth of 33%.

The recovery is visible in all business segments.

Operating expenses amounted to €7,127k, up by 28% compared to the first half of 2021. This change is explained by various factors including the increase in production costs, in particular under the effect of the inflation, higher sales and marketing expenses and higher payroll costs. At the end of June 2022, the company had 57 employees. This increase also illustrates the investments in Quality within the framework of the certifications of the Évry laboratory.
