Epigenomics continues to execute on the commercial front. The US is now the main market for Epi proColon, the only FDA-approved, blood-based colorectal cancer screening test. Epi proColon US sales account for c 60% of total 9M16 revenues of €0.9m, 83% up y-o-y. The remainder come from Europe and other countries. Epigenomics recently raised c €5m in a private placement. It has five convertible notes, which mature by year-end 2016 and could raise an additional €2.6m, providing funding into 2017.
Half year results published

Epigenomics has announced H116 results, which highlight the launch of Epi proColon in the US jointly with Polymedco, the largest distributor of colorectal cancer (CRC) screening tests. Epi proColon has been included in the guidelines of the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), which underscores the potential of the test as a valid screening method for CRC and recognises the need for additional screening options. The test is also now commercially available through LabCorp’s website. The company expects available cash to last into 2017.
Epi proColon gets FDA fillip
13 Jan 16
In a surprise move, the FDA has reversed its request for a new behavioural study of Epigenomics’ blood-based colorectal cancer (CRC) diagnostic test, Epi proColon. US marketing clearance and launch now look likely over the coming few months. With a current cash reach to H216, a cash call may now be deferred until after a possible US approval, and the consequent increased certainty may prove beneficial to current shareholders.
New FDA demands delay US launch further
10 Nov 15
Epigenomics announced another delay to the US launch of its blood-based CRC diagnostic test Epi proColon and a moderate downgrade to its FY15 guidance. The FDA demands more evidence of increased compliance in CRC screening using Epi proColon, which is likely to necessitate a further study. With a current cash reach to H216, a cash call is likely before a possible US approval.
N+1 Singer - Small-cap quantitative research - Momentum screen refresh + 10 focus stocks
12 Jan 17
We have refreshed our momentum style screen for the first time since inception on 26 July 2016. As before, the screen selects the 25 stocks exhibiting the most extreme momentum characteristics, according to our measurement method. From these we have selected 10 to focus on. Since inception the screen has underperformed both the main small-cap and micro-cap indices against a background of generally rising momentum. We have noted a subset of the basket, where decelerating momentum at the time of measurement appears correlated with significant share price falls since selection. We shall monitor this factor with the new screen, albeit there are only two such stocks showing this pattern, namely Lamprell (not rated) and Gear4music (not rated).

As anticipated, the second half has again been stronger than H1 and results will be broadly in line with expectations. In line with this, the order book has continued to grow and is at record levels. This confirms that significant progress has been made in the Group’s shift towards its Technology Products division which, as targeted, contributed c.60% of group revenue in FY16. The small acquisition of Cable Power also gives a complementary boost to the product range. It is also worth noting the significant reduction in net debt, £1.0m ahead of our forecast. We remain supportive of the Group’s strategy and continue to see a bright future as this transition towards a design led technology solutions business continues. We look forward to more detail in March at the final results.

Despite all the hullaballoo of the Brexit vote and the subsequent election of Donald Trump as the next US President, the UK stock market prospered last year, especially in the latter few months of 2016. The combination of a depreciating currency – making $ earnings more valuable in relative terms - and the Trump emphasis on infrastructure expenditure drove the stock market higher

As the birthplace of Stephenson, Armstrong and Swan, the North East of England has a proud history of industrial and technological innovation. Despite local economic challenges, the region’s industrial heritage lives on through continuing success in high end engineering and technology. The recent takeovers of private equity backed SMD (subsea robotics) and Nomad Digital (wi-fi on the railways) are testament to this. The North East has also emerged as a leader in genetics and genomics with an enviable life sciences and healthcare infrastructure. Against this backdrop, we expect the region to continue to throw up attractive IPO candidates to build on the six new listings in the past three years. We expect 2017 to be far kinder to the existing portfolio of North East plcs than 2016 (a year to forget) with recent management changes one important theme for the new year. Our top picks are Hargreaves Services, Quantum Pharma and Zytronic (all N+1 Singer Corporate clients) and we are Buyers of Northgate and Grainger.
