Publication of restated financial results as of December 31st, 2021

PARIS, FRANCE / CAMBRIDGE, MA / ACCESSWIRE / January 31, 2023 / Biophytis SA (NasdaqCM:BPTS, Euronext Growth Paris:ALBPS), ("Biophytis" or the "Company"), a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the development of therapeutics that slow the degenerative processes associated with aging, including severe respiratory failure in patients suffering from COVID-19, today publishes its interim financial report for the first half of 2022 and its adjusted financial results as of 31 December 2021.

Financial results for the first half of 2022

  • Cash and cash equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents and short-term deposits included in other current financial assets as of June 30, 2022, were €19.7 million, a decrease of €4.2 million compared to €23.9 million as of December 31, 2021.
  • Research and Development Expenses. Net research and development expenses were €6.9 million for the first half of 2022, a decrease of €0.7 million, compared to €7.6 million in the first half of 2021. This change is mainly due to the end of the SARA-INT clinical trial operational phase in 2021.
  • General and Administrative Expenses. General and administrative expenses were €5.1 million for the first half of 2021 compared to €2.9 million for the first half of 2021, an increase of €2.1 million, primarily related to new expenses following our listing on Nasdaq in February 2021, which resulted in a significant increase in legal and accounting fees.
  • Financial loss. Our financial loss has decreased significantly from €2.7 million in the first half of 2021 to €0.5 million in the first half of 2022. The first quarter of 2021 was strongly impacted by the dispute with Negma Group Ltd.
  • Net Loss. The net loss decreased by 8% to €12.4 million in the first half 2022 from €13.2 million in the first half of 2021. The net loss per share (based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period) was €0.08 for the first half of 2022 compared to €0.12 for the first half of 2021.
  • Cash and cash equivalents on the 30th of June 2022 amounted to €19.7 million. The Company considers that this amount, together with the credit lines in place, is sufficient to cover the Company's cash requirements for the next 12 months.

2/ Preliminary remarks

In application of IAS 8, and as announced in the October 31st, 2022 press release, the Company has decided, following the review and discussions with its Statutory Auditors, to correct the financial statements as of December 31st, 2021 to reflect the correct interpretation of the financing agreement signed with Kréos on 19 November 2021.

These technical corrections are related to an inappropriate interpretation of the various instruments of this financing, which includes straight bonds, convertible bonds, warrants and conversion options.

These technical corrections have no impact on the Company's cash position and a very marginal impact on net result (0.3%). The impact is mainly on the balance sheet (3.8%).

Full details of these corrections are described in the financial report and the 20F/A for the relevant period, available today on the company's website, and filed to the AMF and the SEC.

3/ Results of the restatement of the accounts as of December 31st 2021 is summarized below:
