Photocure announced Q3 sales of Hexvix/Cysview of NOK31.6m, which although a 17% increase year-on-year (13% in constant currency) represents a 7% sequential reduction in sales. This is largely attributable to seasonality although unit sales in Nordic countries were 14% lower as a result of salesforce staffing issues. US sales continue to be a growth driver with 10% sequential growth and 46% growth year-on-year.

Photocure announced the second quarter of record sales, NOK33.5m or 18% growth year-on-year and 26% growth in Hexvix/Cysview sales. The growth was on the back of an increase of 20% in unit sales and 23% in revenue from the Nordic region, which marks a return to growth in the region following a slow (5% unit loss) Q415. Sales were further supported by a continued increase in US market share with a 37% increase in unit sales and a 66% increase in revenue.
A strong exit for 2015
07 Mar 16
Hexvix/Cysview sales grew 34% year-on-year for Q415, showing marked improvement over Q315 growth rates of 17%. The year closed with NOK115.8m in sales of Hexvix/Cysview, a 26% improvement over 2014, driven primarily by increased unit volume in the US but bolstered by a favourable currency exchange. Revenue growth for the quarter was in the double digits across all reported markets and the company ended the year with cash of NOK134m, which we see as more than sufficient to bring the company to profitability in 2018.

N+1 Singer - Northern lights - Shining prospects for 2017
16 Jan 17
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.

What a year it was!
16 Jan 17
2016 got off to a rocky start. Not long into January, after just a few trading days, global equity markets lost more than US$4tn of value due to investor sentiment towards China’s economic slowdown and depreciating currency. This was immediately followed by a slump in the oil price. By the third week of January, Brent Crude hit its year low at $27.10 a barrel causing an immediate sell off in the energy sector. Once the Q1 dust had settled, attention turned to the UK’s vote on whether to remain a member of the EU. The Brexit vote result proved to be a genuine shock for markets, with many investors having believed that the UK would stay within the European Union. Attention soon turned to the equally ill-tempered US Presidential elections and all the political and economic unknowns that Trump’s victory has spawned. As a result, AIM, has seen a roller-coaster of a year in 2016.
