BRAIN AG publishes annual report for financial year 2017/18
Zwingenberg, Germany
10 January 2019
The bioeconomy company BRAIN AG today published its annual report 2017/18 including the detailed consolidated financial statements for the financial year 2017/18. Key figures about the business development were previously published by BRAIN on 14 December 2018.

Accordingly, the BRAIN Group increased its revenues by 12.2% from EUR 24.1 million to EUR 27.1 million. Total operating performance in the reporting period from 01 October 2017 to 30 September 2018 grew by 13.1% year-on-year from EUR 26.9 million to EUR 30.5 million. This was mainly due to the business activities of Biocatalysts Ltd. acquired on 17 March 2018. Adjusted EBITDA for the financial year 2017/18 decreased from EUR -4.7 million in the previous year to EUR -5.4 million against the backdrop of lower fixed cost degression. The BioIndustrial segment, which is decisive for the achievement of the growth targets of the BRAIN Group and for the illustration of product business, made a positive adjusted EBITDA contribution of EUR 0.9 million. Cash flow from operating activities increased to EUR -5.4 million compared with EUR -5.8 million in the same period of the previous year.

The annual report 2017/18 of BRAIN entitled "Living Networks" can be accessed at https://www.brain-biotech.de/en/investor-relations/financial-publications. In addition to the audited group financials and management discussion, the report also provides insights into the competences of BRAIN Group and into selected research and development activities as well as into BRAIN's self-conception.

The 2017/18 financial year was the second full reporting cycle as a listed company, following BRAIN's IPO in February 2016. Regarding the development of the financial year 2017/18, Dr. Jürgen Eck, CEO of BRAIN AG says:

"BRAIN continues to grow and we are proud to have achieved in financial year 2017/18 a double-digit growth in total operating performance and revenues. Having established the three business units Nutrition & Health, Skin Care and Industrial BioSolutions in order to focus on the most promising application areas of industrial biotechnology and having created the new position of Chief Business Officer (CBO) to the management board supports the sustained growth of BRAIN, especially in the product business."

The main focus in the financial year 2018/19 continues to be on the BRAIN Group's growth, driven by both organic and inorganic growth. For the 2018/19 financial year the Management Board expects a positive business trend with a double-digit increase in total operating performance.
