Munich - Formycon AG (ISIN: DE000A1EWVY8/ WKN: A1EWVY) has today published its financial performance indicators for 2020 and has recorded a solid financial year.
On the day of reporting, December 31, 2020, the Formycon Group's commercial figures had developed as forecast. Consolidated group sales which, in addition to the AG, include the two subsidiaries Formycon 201 Project GmbH and Formycon 203 Project GmbH as well as the 24.9 percent share in the FYB 202 GmbH & Co. KG joint venture, amounted, as forecast, to a total of Euro 34.2 million (previous year: Euro 33.2 million).
Group earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation on fixed assets and intangible assets (EBITDA) amounted to Euro -4.8 million (previous year: Euro -1.4 million) on the day of reporting. The operating result (EBIT) totaled Euro -5.7 million (previous year: Euro -2.3 million). At Euro -5.9 million (previous year Euro -2.3 million), the result for the year was in line with expectations. In line with its growth strategy, Formycon had invested in the development of its own or young pipeline in the 2020 financial year, resulting in a slightly higher negative annual result compared to previous years. In addition to the COVID-19 drug (FYB207), the main development focus was on the as yet unpublished and unpartnered biosimilar candidate FYB206. Formycon was also able to recruit further qualified specialists last year in line with the needs of the development projects and employed 131 people at the end of the reporting period (+16% compared to the previous year).
