ISSOIRE, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:

BIOCORP (FR0012788065 – ALCOR / Eligible PEA‐PME) (Paris:ALCOR), a French company specialized in the design, development, and manufacturing of innovative medical devices, today announces its annual results for the year ended on December 31, 2021, as approved by the Board of directors on April 4th.

Éric Dessertenne, CEO of BIOCORP, commented: “2021 was another year of remarkable execution of our development plan. Despite the uncertainties related to the COVID crisis and the trade-offs within the major pharmaceutical companies, BIOCORP has achieved notable success in many fields. On the commercial front, new major international diabetes and insulin players have adopted our Mallya connected device in their patient monitoring arsenal, such as Roche Diabetes Care for the French market and, even more structurally, Novo Nordisk, the world leader in the sector. These agreements have completed BIOCORP's transformation from an R&D company to an advanced technology company. Mallya's stance has also led to technological agreements with the French company Diabeloop and the best applications dedicated to patient monitoring, such as Health2Sync and SocialDiabetes. While Mallya's diabetes applications have been identified as BIOCORP's focus for the coming years, our R&D and business development teams have also continued their efforts on other fronts. The alliance signed with Merck in the field of human growth hormone around Mallya, or the partnership with H&T Presspart for the marketing of our Inspair device, offer exciting development prospects, independent of the single diabetes market. Finally, the advances made by our Injay pre-filled syringe device now attest to the diversity of our product mix. More than ever, BIOCORP is recognized worldwide for its ability to provide miniaturized and customized connected solutions. This is evident in our financial performance. Our operating revenues, which are still based on research fees, grew by more than 20% last year. As for our net result, it has become positive again despite the high level of investment in R&D. The gradual increase in product sales by all our partners leads us to expect a very dynamic second half of 2022. More than ever, we want to share our optimism with the feeling that we are fully realizing our unwavering ambition: to offer patients, regardless of their pathology, a real improvement in their quality of life.”
