Audit procedures relative to the Group’s consolidated financial statements have been carried out, and the auditor’s reports will be Issued once the Statutory Auditors have performed specific checks on the notes to the consolidated financial statements and the management report.


The press release published on January 14th and available on the www.medicrea.com website highlights the evolution of 2012 annual sales. Despite the pressure that continued to weigh on the spinal fusion market in 2012, notably in the United States, the Group recorded an 8.5% increase in sales.

"The development of activity in the United States associated with the continuous optimization of our manufacturing capacity and processes have substantially improved our gross margin, which is now close to our target of 80%”, comments Denys SOURNAC, Chairman and CEO of MEDICREA. The increase in activity combined with the reduction of some operating costs have enabled the break-even point to be substantially reduced and the current operating profit to be almost positive in 2012, following a loss of 1.9 million euros in 2011.


The Group will pursue four main objectives in 2013:

1. develop its sales activity, principally in the United States, with its PASS® LP product family and further innovations;

2. improve its gross margin and break-even point in order to record an operating profit over the year;

3. obtain FDA approval for its K-Jaws® technology in order to implement a strategic agreement and boost the sales of this medical device in the United States;

4. sign exclusive distribution licensing agreements for products that have been recently launched and which have represented a substantial portion of the R&D efforts undertaken in recent years.

Regarding this latter point, the Group has begun negotiations with potential American partners for its Granvia-C® cervical disc prosthesis.
