evolva holding sa (EVE) Key Developments

Evolva Holding Sa. Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

Evolva Holding SA. reported consolidated earnings results for the six months ended June 30, 2015. For the period, the company reported revenue was CHF 8.3 million against CHF 5.0 million a year ago. Net loss was CHF 17.0 million against CHF 10.6 million a year ago. Loss per share was CHF 0.05 against CHF 0.04 per share a year ago. Total R&D expenses increased by 56% to CHF 18.1 million from CHF 11.6 million in 2014. This reflects a 41% increase in R&D headcount (from 79 to 111) as a result of the Allylix acquisition and new hires over the last 12 months, not least in scale-up and application development. The operating cash outflow rose to CHF 14.8 million in 2015 from CHF 9.4 million in 2014. Of the total increase, CHF 3.7 million relates to settlement of the remaining liabilities assumed from Allylix in December 2014. The company expects revenues to be around CHF 14 million in 2015 subject to achievement of certain milestones and the development of product sales before year-end. Product sales are expected to make a meaningful revenue contribution but the majority of revenues will still derive from R&D partnerships. The operating cash outflow in the second half of 2015 is expected to increase compared with the first half, not least due to an increase in costs to manufacturing and sales and marketing.

Evolva Launches Nootkatone, Highly Prized Citrus Flavour and Fragrance Ingredient

Evolva announced the launch of nootkatone, a highly prized citrus flavour and fragrance (F&F) ingredient. By brewing nootkatone from sugar, rather than extracting it from the skin of grapefruits, Evolva's process allows nootkatone to be made in large amounts in a highly reproducible, contaminant free, sustainable and affordable manner. Evolva has now begun selling nootkatone as a F&F ingredient to food, beverage, personal care, and home care product producers around the world. Nootkatone is a natural aroma ingredient that occurs in grapefruit and certain other plants. Nootkatone is a natural aroma ingredient that occurs in grapefruit and certain other plants. It is responsible for the characteristic smell of grapefruit. With a record of demonstrated safety, it is approved in all major countries for use in F&F, and is used in a wide range of foods, drinks, and skin care products. However, until now, its use has been limited by its high price, limited supply, product quality, and other factors. But nootkatone's commercial prospects go significantly beyond F&F. In both laboratory and field studies, nootkatone has demonstrated excellent activity against biting and nuisance pests, notably the ticks that are responsible for spreading Lyme disease, but also mosquitoes, head lice, bed bugs and other pests. Earlier this year Evolva therefore submitted a request to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to classify nootkatone as a biochemical pesticide active ingredient (a subcategory of biopesticide). Such a classification allows for a potentially expedited process for registration of nootkatone for use against pests. Evolva received approval of this request on August 19, 2015, and will now engage in an estimated 2-3 years of regulatory work to get nootkatone approved as an insect and tick repellent in the USA. Evolva is also investigating other geographies.
