Chairman and CEO's statement

Introduction

Following the transition to a new CEO and successful placing in September 2016, the Company is now fully focused on expanding its pipeline of customers and moving its existing customers up the value chain from pre-clinical to the more valuable clinical projects.

As anticipated in our company update on 11(th) January 2017, first half performance is in line with the comparable prior period. Revenue was similar to the comparable prior period and our operating loss before exceptional costs widened from GBP169,877 to GBP222,147. A significant element of the increase is attributable to additional business development related activities which the Company hopes to see bear fruit in the second half of its financial year.

Business development strategy

Our first large scale commercial Virtual Tumour Clinical project with key client Merck Serono is ongoing and it remains a key objective of the Company to become as deeply embedded as possible in its larger clients' R&D structures where Physiomics can bring complementary modelling and prediction skills to the already existing in-house teams.

The Company has devoted considerable time and resource to up-selling with existing clients and to re-engaging with some of the many large clients we've had in the past with the specific objective of signing at least one more VT Clinical project this calendar year. However, it should be noted that the decision process in multi-national companies can be protracted. The Company believes that this would then give it a solid platform to expand more generally with mid-sized as well as new larger clients.

In parallel to our commercial collaborations, Physiomics was pleased to be awarded, in the face of strong competition, a highly competitive Innovate UK grant to develop a pilot decision support tool for use in front-line clinical settings. This is precisely in line with the Company's stated strategy of developing an offering in personalised medicine and could lead to a commercial offering in future years. The Company is collaborating on this grant project with Prof Mark Middleton, Lead Cancer Clinician at Oxford Foundation Hospital NHS Trust.

Outlook

The Directors believe that revenues for the second half of the Company's financial year will be at least in line with the comparable period in the previous year contingent on a contract currently under discussion being finalised during this financial year.

Physiomics Plc

Notes to the Interim Financial Statements

   1.   General information 

Physiomics Plc is a public limited company ("the Company") incorporated in England & Wales (registration number 4225086). The Company is domiciled in the United Kingdom and its registered address is The Magdalen Centre, Robert Robinson Avenue, The Oxford Science Park, Oxford, OX4 4GA. The Company's ordinary shares are traded on the AIM Market of the London Stock Exchange ("AIM"). Copies of the interim report are available from the Company's website, www.physiomics-plc.com. Further copies of the Interim Report and Annual Report and Accounts may be obtained from the address above.

The Company's principal activity is the provision of services to pharmaceutical companies in the area of outsourced systems and computational biology.

   2.   Basis of preparation 

The interim financial statements of the Company for the six months ended 31 December 2016, which are unaudited, have been prepared in accordance with the accounting policies set out in the annual report and accounts for the year ended 30 June 2016, which were prepared under International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS").

The financial information contained in the interim report does not constitute statutory accounts as defined in Section 435 of the Companies Act 2006. The financial information for the full preceding year is based on the statutory accounts for the year ended 30 June 2016. Those accounts, upon which the auditors, Shipleys LLP, issued an unqualified audit opinion, have been delivered to the Registrar of Companies.

As permitted, this interim report has been prepared in accordance with the AIM Rules for Companies and not in accordance with IAS 34 "Interim Financial Reporting" therefore it is not fully compliant with IFRS.

The interim financial statements are presented in sterling and all values are rounded to the nearest thousand pounds (GBP'000) except when otherwise indicated.

   3.   Restatement of interim financial statements for the six months ended 31 December 2015 

The interim financial statements for the six months ended 31 December 2015 were previously reported without the inclusion of a share-based compensation charge. They have been restated here to include a share-based compensation charge of GBP22,517. This additional cost appears in the restated income statement for the six months ended 31 December 2015 and corresponding loss per share for that period (see also note 4), as an adjustment to the capital reserves and profit and loss account within the unaudited statement of financial position at 31 December 2015, as a movement in the unaudited statement of changes in equity for the half year ended 31 December 2015 resulting in an increase in the share-based compensation reserve and a corresponding decrease in retained earnings, and in the unaudited cash flow statement for the half year ended 31 December 2015 within the adjustments to operating loss to derive the cash generated from operations. The charge does not reduce cash or net assets previously reported as at 31 December 2015.

   4.   Restated loss per share 

The loss per share for the half year ended 31 December 2015 and year ended 30 June 2016 has been restated to reflect the share consolidation in December 2016 at a ratio of 100:1 and in both cases the restatement is unaudited. In addition, the loss per share for the half year ended 31 December 2015 has increased reflecting the share based payment compensation charge restatement explained in note 3.

The calculation of the restated basic loss per share is based on the loss attributable to ordinary shareholders and the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue during the period.

The loss attributable to equity holders (holders of ordinary shares) of the Company for the purpose of calculating the restated fully diluted loss per share is identical to that used for calculating the loss per share. The exercise of share options would have the effect of reducing the loss per share and is therefore anti-dilutive under the terms of IAS 33 'Earnings per Share'.

Reconciliation of the loss and weighted average number of ordinary shares used in the calculation are set out below:
