During 2021, TheraVet generated its first revenues following the launch of BIOCERA-VET® Bone Surgery in Belgium in April, in France and the Netherlands in October and of BIOCERA-VET® Osteosarcoma in December in the same countries.

The Company also generated €1.93 million of “Produced fixed asset” as a result of the activation of development expenses related to the BIOCERA-VET® and VISCO-VET® programs.

In accordance with the roadmap presented at the time of the IPO, the increase in “Purchases and expenses" reflects the development of preclinical and clinical programs, the commercialization of BIOCERA-VET® products and the structuring of the Company:

- COGS are counted for the first year: Increased by €0.06 million as compared to 2020 resulting from the commercialisation of BIOCERA-VET® products.

- R&D expenses contributed to the main part of expenses with €1.15 million and increased by €0.51 million as compared to 2020. The increase is mainly the result of (i) BIOCERA-VET® development with €0.29 million in December 2021 for the validation of the manufacturing process of BIOCERA-VET® Bone Surgery and for the clinical studies in order to support the products with safety and efficacy data as compared to €0.26 million in December 2020 and (ii) VISCO-VET® development with €0.84 millions in December 2021 contributing to preclinical and clinical developments with the launch of the European pivotal study and the initiation of the validation of the GMP manufacturing process as compared to €0.47 million in December 2020.

- IPO exceptional expenses increased by €0.17 million as compared to 2020 and related to the preparation of the Initial Public Offering.

- Marketing & Sales expenses increased by €0.20 million as compared to marginal expenses of 2020 resulting from the effort of the Company to prepare the commercial launch of the BIOCERA-VET® products.

- G&A expenses increased by €0.54 million as compared to 2020 mainly as a result of

  • the effort to increase visibility of the Company to the investors by participating in financial events or promoting the Company,
  • the lawyers support in the preparation of the different partnership agreements negotiated and signed over 2021 and early 2022,
  • the increase of the operational consultants to structure and strengthen the Company.

- Staff expenses increased to €0.76 million in December 2021 as compared to €0.47 million as a result of the structuring of the Company including the recruitment of 7 employees in 2021.

Finally, the amortization of development expenses related to the BIOCERA-VET® Bone Surgery and VISCO-VET® programs resulted in an operating loss of €1.7 million and a net loss of €1.34 million.

The Company’s cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2021 amounted to €5.63 million allowing to fund operation at least until first quarter of 2024.

Operational highlights (including events after closure of the financial year)

BIOCERA-VET®, the most comprehensive line of bone substitutes

2021 was the year of the development of BIOCERA-VET®, TheraVet’s line of bone substitutes.

Highlights on the R&D program

The Company announced positive results in the target clinical indications:

- In July 2021, BIOCERA-VET® Osteosarcoma was used successfully in a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of osteosarcoma in dogs.

- In November 2021, positive safety and efficacy results of BIOCERA-VET® Osteosarcoma cementoplasty as a palliative option for canine osteosarcoma were reported with:

  • Improvement of quality of life
  • Reduction of pain for up to 6 months after the treatment
  • Low complication rate

- In February 2022, the positive safety and efficacy results of BIOCERA-VET® Bone surgery in canine arthrodesis (fusion of carpal or tarsal joint) were confirmed on an enlarged cohort of patients (27 dogs). In this study, BIOCERA-VET® was shown to be at least as effective as autologous bone graft but with a lower complication rate (0% vs 25%) and a reduced surgery time (30 to 45 min), positioning BIOCERA-VET® as a valuable alternative to the reference procedure. Results were presented and awarded by the “Best Poster Presentation” in February 2022 at an American world-class orthopedic conference, Veterinary Orthopedic Conference (VOS).

Highlights on commercialization

The commercialization of BIOCERA-VET® Bone Surgery was initiated in April 2021 in Belgium, and extended to France and the Netherlands in October 2021. BIOCERA -VET® Osteosarcoma was launched in December 2021 in the same countries.

Commercial expansion was pursued in March 2022 with the launch in the United Kingdom and Ireland, representing the 3rd biggest companion animal market in Europe with more than 16 millions dogs.

In January 2022, in order to support the Company in sales and according to the Company’s strategy, TheraVet signed a distribution agreement with Centravet, one of France’s leading wholesaler/distributor of animal health products.

Highlights on the partnership agreements

To build the most comprehensive line of vet bone substitutes , the Company signed two additional major partnerships :

- In November 2021, signing of an exclusive distribution and research partnership with INNOTERE Gmbh (Germany) significantly expanding TheraVet’s synthetic bone substitutes portfolio with (i) 2 complementary bone graft lines, (ii) 3D-bioprinted bone endoprostheses for patient-tailored bone grafting surgeries & (iii) the development of novel generation proprietary products.

- In February 2022, signing of an exclusive partnership with Industrie Biomediche Insubri SA (IBI, Switzerland) on a new biological bone graft product line, “BIOCERA-VET® SmartGraft”; in order to provide the veterinary market with a unique and standardized biological bone graft solution combining quality and availability.

With these new partnerships, the Company has built one of the most comprehensive lines of bone substitutes available in the veterinary market.

VISCO-VET®, a new solution in canine osteoarthritis and prevention of ligament rupture

VISCO-VET® is a line of injectable intra-articular gels addressing dog articular diseases such as osteoarthritis and cranial cruciate ligament deficiencies, representing more than 40 millions patients in Europe and the United States.

In September 2021, laboratory proof-of-concept results were confirmed in a pilot clinical study evaluating VISCO-VET® in canine osteoarthritis in client-owned dogs. A single intra-articular injection of VISCO-VET® provided:

  • A statistically significant improvement in dog’s mobility
  • A statistically significant reduction in dog’s osteoarthritis-related pain
  • Long-lasting effects, and increasing over time, for up to 3 months after the injection
  • Well tolerated with no adverse event reported

The Company announced in September 2021 the launch of the pivotal European multicentric clinical study evaluating VISCO-VET® in canine osteoarthritis in France and the Netherlands. Patient enrolment started in October 2021.

Strategy & key milestones in 2022

In 2022, the Company intends to continue the development of its various assets and accelerate the ramping up of the commercialization of BIOCERA-VET®. The resources will be allocated to achieving the following strategic objectives:

  • Launch of BIOCERA-VET® line in the United States of America and in Germany (the biggest companion animal market in Europe), respectively during the first and second half of 2022
  • Initiation of the pivotal European multicentric clinical evaluating VISCO-VET® in canine osteoarthritis in Poland and Portugal anticipated in first semester 2022
  • Continuation of the discussion with Regulatory Agencies in Europe and the United States in the preparation of the regulatory filing of VISCO-VET®
