About Creo Medical

 

 

Chief Executive's Review

 

I am pleased to report that we have made good strategic, operational and financial progress in the period and have delivered against the milestones we set ourselves.

 

The last year has seen the attainment of several important achievements.  The first was the completion of our multicentre clinical study which successfully demonstrated the safety and efficacy of microwave energy to coagulate bleeds in 30 patients.  This was the first such study in the surgical endoscopy field and provided data in support of the CE mark approval received later in the financial year, which cleared the product for clinical use in Europe.

 

Subsequent to receiving the CE mark we initiated training at selected institutions and, following which, the first patients were successfully treated with Speedboat RS2.  The clinical training programme continues to expand with the device poised for use in additional patients over the course of the next year.

 

In March 2017 we were awarded a €530,000 research grant for early stage research focused on Glioblastoma.  Creo is one of six European partners in a multidisciplinary consortium developing a truly innovative micro-optofluidic lab-on-chip platform that deploys semi-conductor technology to neutralise cancer stem cells with electromagnetic waves.

 

Shortly after the end of the financial year we were delighted to receive 510(k) regulatory clearance from the FDA for Speedboat RS2 in the US, several months earlier than anticipated.  In addition to the advantages of the device itself, we believe that the early achievement of this major landmark reflects our sound quality assurance and regulatory strategy which puts us in good stead for future submissions.  We are now able to commit to, and plan, the US roll-out of initial clinical cases and establish our training regime.

 

Since the IPO we have invested in significant commercial appointments with experience in delivering training and education programmes in laparoscopic surgery. This expertise is already being applied as we further build out the CREO surgical training programmes and identify distribution partners in Europe, EMEA and the US.

 

We have recently moved into our new facility in Chepstow.  The new facility is four times larger than our previous one, but at a comparable underlying rent, giving us additional capacity from which to expand and build the business to meet the anticipated demand for our CROMA platform.  With a growing headcount, I have been proud to support the team through investment in leadership and personal development and I would like to thank all of our employees for their continued dedication and hard work which is reflected in the strong progress we have made this year.

 

Product development summary

 

Our technology makes it possible to treat conditions using flexible endoscopy in the endoscopy suite as opposed to a surgical outcome carried out in the operating theatre under general anaesthetic. CROMA delivers dissection, resection, haemostasis and ablation with unparalleled controllability.

 

The benefits for physicians and patients include:

 

·      a bipolar radiofrequency energy source which facilitates precise, localised cutting or resecting of tissue, resulting in predictable tissue effect and reducing the risk of remote burns and of unwanted thermal damage to healthy tissue;

·      a microwave energy source which facilitates controlled and focussed coagulation of vessels and ablation of cancerous or pre-cancerous lesions to provide more control to the surgeon. This results in highly predictable tissue effects;

·      a connection which uniquely combines the delivery of RF and microwave energy; and

·      energy which is optimised for specific purposes without the need for complex set up.

 

The CROMA platform will be accompanied by a suite of medical devices which we have designed, focused on three therapeutic endoscopic specialisms: lower gastrointestinal, lung/bronchoscopy and upper gastrointestinal ("GI").  Our devices are at various stages of development, from concept to in-vivo testing.  The main products are Speedboat RS2, the Haemostasis Graspers, the Haemostasis Probe, the Resector and the flexible Ablation Probe.

 

Speedboat RS2 is the first device approved for use with CROMA.  The Speedboat RS2 device harnesses the cut and coagulation capability of CROMA and enables the removal of cancerous and pre-cancerous GI growths and lesions in the bowel with a flexible endoscope.  This approach can replace open or laparoscopic surgery as well as the alternative endoscopic approach of Endoscopic Mucosal Resection ("EMR"). EMR can remove larger lesions but in many pieces, which can lead to residual abnormal tissue being left behind, causing recurrence.  With the Speedboat RS2 device, the endoscopist is able to remove the lesion in a single large piece (en-bloc), providing a more complete and accurate specimen for analysis and reducing the need for frequent endoscopic checks.  The use of the Speedboat RS2 device reduces the risks associated with alternative laparoscopic procedures and can reduce the length of hospital stays.

 

We are working on further areas of application of bipolar radiofrequency and microwave technology including bronchoscopically guided lung tumour ablation, an area associated with a low suitability for curative surgery and poor survival rates.  CROMA could potentially offer a minimally invasive treatment for these lesions.  We have developed the Ablation Probe and the related 'super-cable' prototype intended to enhance the navigation of the Ablation Probe while providing integrated navigation and imaging.  Development of the Ablation Probe and 'super-cable' is at preliminary stages, although in-vivo testing to demonstrate navigation deep into the lung has been achieved.

 

Strategy update

 

In this first year since IPO, our strategy has been to focus on our first regulatory approvals as well as defining and advancing our next products.  As we move into the second year, our focus will remain on developing our products, demonstrating the clinical utility, whilst continuing to build a commercial platform.  This platform will be founded on a mix of direct and indirect distribution resources.  By the end of the third year we expect to have launched a fuller suite of products from our development pipeline and significantly expanded our commercial reach.

 

In the period, a small number of patients have been treated with our technology.  We have also had positive feedback from the first participants in our clinical training programme through which we will continue to select, train and supervise participants for 18 months.  We will initially start with a small number of cases in Europe and then progress to a wider group of carefully-selected trainees, in Europe and the US, to ensure the delivery of the best possible quality of clinical outcomes.  This process will take place over the next 18 to 24 months.  The goal is to deliver a repeatable, predictable training programme that delivers clinical results in the wider endoscopy community, creates market awareness and drives adoption of the CHROMA platform.

 

We continue to make good progress, delivering against our strategy of bringing additional instruments on the CROMA platform to the patients that need them.  

 

Intellectual property

 

Creo has an established and growing IP portfolio including 97 granted patents and 245 pending patent applications, all in the area of electrosurgical energy generation and control, together with a range of applicator structures for advanced tissue management.

 

Outlook

 

We have made pleasing progress to advance our pipeline through our phased commercialisation model and we remain on track for the market to adopt our first device during 2018 ahead of our anticipated commercial builds in 2019.

  

Financial Review

 

Revenue

The Group does not currently generate any revenue from its activities. Other operating income of £0.3m in the year (4 months to June 2016: £0.2m) relates to research grants.

 

Operating loss

The operating loss for the period increased to £8.9m (4 months to 30 Jun 2016: £1.9m), reflecting the increased operating expenses in relation to clinical and development activities together with further investment in headcount and business infrastructure to support the business and enable it to continue to develop and commercialise its technology. This continued investment in the business will support its anticipated growth and development in the coming periods.

 

The underlying operating loss (or adjusted EBITDA) for the year was £5.6m (4 months to 30 June 2016: £1.6m).

 

Whilst EBITDA is not a statutory measure the Board believe it is helpful to investors to include as an additional metric to help provide a meaningful understanding of the financial information as this measure provides an approximation of the ongoing cash requirements of the business through development phase. The Adjusted EBITDA position excludes share based payment expenses which are non-cash, exceptional costs relating to the flotation of the Group in the year and incorporates the recovery of research and development (R&D) expenditure which the Group is able to benefit from through R&D Tax credit schemes.

Expenses of the initial public offering (IPO)

IPO related costs incurred in the period were £1.3m (4 months to 30 June 2016: £nil). These costs primarily related to commissions, legal, accounting and other advisor fees including irrecoverable VAT in connection with the IPO. In addition to these costs a further £1.5m (4 months to 30 June 2016: £nil) was capitalised.

 

Tax

The tax credits recognised in the current and previous fiscal year relate solely to R&D tax credit claims.

 

Expenses

Administrative expenses comprising R&D, operational support, sales and marketing, and finance and administration costs totalled £9.2m (4 months to 30 June 2016: £2.0m). Adjusting for costs and tax income above, underlying administrative expenses are £5.6m (4 months to 30 June 2016: £1.6m).

 

This annualised increase of £0.9m reflects the continued investment made by the Group in clinical and development activities. Personnel costs continue to be the largest expense and represent approximately 69% of the Group's underlying administrative expenses.

 

Loss per share

Loss per share was 13 pence (4 months to 30 Jun 2016: 5 pence). Removing the significant non-recurring costs in relation to the IPO of £1.3m the loss per share is 11 pence.

 

Cash flow and Balance Sheet

Net cash used in operating activities was £6.9m (4 months to 30 Jun 2016: £1.6m), driven by the planned increase in investment in research and development during the period. Net cash generated from share issue was £20.0m (4 months to 30 Jun 2016: £nil) reflecting the net proceeds of the issue of shares in the IPO and Pre-IPO rounds of fundraising.

 

Total assets increased to £16.1m (30 Jun 2016: £2.4m), a 571% increase, reflecting the increase in cash arising from the issue of new ordinary shares at the IPO and pre IPO rounds, offset by the operating cash outflow for the period.

 

Cash and cash equivalents at 30 June 2017 was £13.7m (30 Jun 2016: £0.8m). Net assets were £14.7m (30 Jun 2016: £1.6m), a 819% increase.

Notes to the financial statements

 

The financial information set out above does not constitute the Company's statutory accounts for the years ended 30 June 2017 or 2016 but is derived from those accounts-. Statutory accounts for 2016 have been delivered to the registrar of companies, and those for 2017 will be delivered in due course. The auditor has reported on those accounts; their reports were (i) unqualified, (ii) did not include a reference to any matters to which the auditor drew attention by way of emphasis without qualifying their report and (iii) did not contain a statement under section 498 (2) or (3) of the Companies Act 2006.

 

1.  Revenue and other operating income

 

The Group does not currently generate any revenue from its activities.

 

Other operating income relates to research grants.   Income is recognised necessary to match it with the related costs in the profit or loss on a systematic basis over the periods in which the entity recognises expenses for the related costs for which the grants are intended to compensate.   Furthermore, income is recognised only when there is reasonable assurance that the company will comply with any conditions attached to the grant and the grant will be received.   

 

Segmental reporting: Operating segments are identified on the basis of internal reporting and decision making.  The board regularly reviews the company's performance and balance sheet position for its operations and receives financial information for the company. As a result the company has one reportable segment, which is being the research and development of electrosurgical medical devices relating to the field of surgical endoscopy. As there is only one reportable segment whole profit, expenses, assets, liabilities and cash flows are measured and reported on a basis consistent with the financial statements, no additional disclosures are necessary.

 

2.  Loss before tax

Earnings per share has been calculated in accordance with IAS 33 - Earnings Per Share using for the loss for the period after tax, divided by the weighted average number of shares in issue.

 

Diluted earnings per share is calculated by adjusting the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue to assume conversion of all potential dilutive ordinary shares. The potential ordinary shares are considered to be antidilutive on the basis that they reduce the loss per share and are such are not included in the Company's EPS calculation, meaning that diluted EPS is the same as basic EPS.  Adjusted EPS is calculated as follows:

Is the amount of nominal value of share held by shareholders.  At 30 June 2017 80,711,745 shares have been issued, each with the nominal value of £0.001 equalling a share capital for the Company of £80,712.  All ordinary shares rank as pari passu with regards to voting, dividends and rights on winding up.

 

Share premium

The share premium reserve comprises the difference between the nominal value and the value received on share issue offset by the costs directly associated with obtaining the capital funding e.g. legal fees.

 

Merger reserve

The merger reserve reflects the difference between the existing share capital and premium of Creo Medical Limited prior to share for share exchange and the nominal value of shares issued.

 

Share option reserve

The share option reserve reflects the cost to the group of share options granted but not yet exercised.  Refer to note 8 Share based payments.

 

Retained Earnings

8.  Subsequent events

 

After the end of the financial year, and prior to approving the annual report, the company received regulatory clearance from the FDA for the speedboat device in the US. In accordance with IAS10 an adjusting event occurs if it is indicative of circumstances that were in place at the reporting date. In this case the subsequent FDA clearance provides evidence that at the reporting date the design of the Speedboat and CROMA products were sufficiently advanced to the feasibility criteria of IAS 38 Intangible assets. However as at period end this was not known and IAS 38 Paragraph 71 prohibits the capitalisation of expenditure that was initially recognised as an expense. Therefore no adjustment is made to costs at period end.

 

This is a significant milestone in the development of that particular product and therefore it has been disclosed in the annual report in order to provide sufficient information as to the nature and impact of the subsequent event. Whilst there is no current financial effect its impact is significant in relation to the appropriateness of the directors' going concern assessment.
