Trading Update

genedrive plc (AIM: GDR), the near patient molecular diagnostics company, today provides an unaudited period end update for the six months ended 31 December 2017.

Group revenue was GBP2.6m (2016: GBP2.8m) with diagnostic (Genedrive(R)) related revenue of GBP1.3m (2016: GBP1.2m). Diagnostic revenue was largely comprised of the US Department of Defense project, with GBP1.0m of development income and GBP0.3m of product related sales.

genedrive has made significant strategic and operational progress in the period with the CE marking of its Genedrive(R) HCV ID Kit, the appointment of its distribution partner, Sysmex Corporation ("Sysmex"), in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions, and the launch of the Hepatitis C test in Africa. Recently published field study results also demonstrated the robust performance of the HCV test in a third party setting and on territory specific samples. The Company continues to make good progress towards commercialising its Genedrive(R) HCV ID test and is performing in line with current expectations.

The Services division generated revenue of GBP1.3m (2016: GBP1.7m). While a disposal has yet to be secured in line with our strategic objective, discussions are ongoing and we remain optimistic that an appropriate divestment can be secured.

The Company closed the period with cash of GBP4.6m (30 June 2017: GBP5.1m), following the receipt of GBP1.2m R&D tax credits in the period.

David Budd, Chief Executive Officer of genedrive plc, said: "We are making good progress with the launch of the CE-marked Genedrive(R) HCV ID kit. This is an exciting period of growth and evolution for genedrive as we transition to a commercial stage point of care diagnostics company."

The Company expects to release results for the six months up to 31 December 2017 on 20 March 2018.
