During the first 9 months of 2019, total revenues amounted to €1.4 million, of which €1.3 million from Research Tax Credit (CIR). The CIR increased compared to the same period in 2018 and reflects the sustained efforts in R&D, particularly in product and clinical development.

Use of cash flow from operating activities amounted €7.7 million and €5.2 million at September 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018, respectively. The increase in cash burn is mainly due to a delayed payment of the CIR 2018 receivable of €1.3 million, which should be received before the end of 2019. In 2018, the company received the payment of the CIR 2017 receivable during the third quarter for €2.1 million. Excluding CIR impact, use of cash from operating activities increased by 4.1% and reflected the production of products as part of ongoing clinical development.

In the first 9 months of 2019, investments were not significant and mainly covered production tools and laboratory materials.

As of September 30, 2019, net cash flow from financing activities reached € 0.9 million in outflow, mainly due to reimbursement of the venture loan for €1.6 million. This was partially offset by a net amount of €0.9 million, from the equity line financing signed in December 2018.

As of September 30, 2019, the cash and cash equivalent position of Pixium Vision amounted to €7.0 million compared to €18.4 million at the same period last year.

Pixium Vision will report its 2019 Financial Results on February 13, 2020 before market opening
