Paris, July 23, 2018 – 5.45 pm

Eurobio Scientific (FR0013240934, ALERS, eligible PEA-PME), a leading French group in the field of specialty in vitro medical diagnostics and life sciences, today presents its consolidated half-year turnover for the period ending June 30, 2018.

Strong growth of 29% to € 25.1 million

Driven by the acquisition of Eurobio that was completed on March 30, 2017, the Group’s turnover increased by +29% to € 25.1 million in the first half of 2018, the Group’s new scope of consolidation including sales made by Eurobio since January 1st, 2018.

On a like-for-like basis, i.e. including Eurobio’s sales during the first quarter of 2017, mid-year turnover increased by 2%. This growth rate is similar to the turnover growth rate at constant scope between the first half of 2016 and that of 2017.

In line with the Group’s strategy, the activity during the first half of 2018 is driven by the Disease Diagnostics division (diagnostic tests and tests for monitoring the effectiveness of treatments for biology laboratories), whose sales are growing quite rapidly and offset those in the Transplantation division, which were down this semester in a mature market. Regarding the Research Products division, sales remained stable at about 10% of the Group’s turnover.

Strong increase in profitability expected in 2018

Beyond the synergies associated with the merger between Eurobio and Ingen, our sales are growing, driven by our Disease Diagnostics division and in particular by molecular biology. This good performance allows us to continue to anticipate a slight growth on a like-for-like basis over the year, to also better balance our product portfolio, and to focus on our objective of significantly increasing the Group’s EBITDA for 2018,” declares Jean-Michel Carle, Chairman of the Management Board of Eurobio Scientific.
