Exactly one year ago, the FTSE 100 closed at 5,862, having fallen 100 points on the day, the lowest point since mid-May 2020, due in part, to the strength of sterling vs US$ at $1.34. One year on, the FTSE 100 has risen to 7,119, a rise of 21%, it remains 7% below the peak in January 2020. From an international viewpoint, US and European markets continue to trade at record highs.

RUA Life Sciences’ AGM statement and trading update demonstrated good progress across its businesses since the FY 2021 results announcement earlier in the summer. RUA’s product that is closest to the market – the large bore vascular graft – is back on track for a Q1 2022 commercial launch. The 510(k) approval and agreements with distribution partners will likely result in an increase in our valuation when they occur.

While RUA Life Sciences’ FY 2021 results echoed some of the challenges from last year’s pandemic, largely in the well-flagged revenue shortfall stemming from RUA’s customers that was a result of fewer elective surgeries, RUA’s focus now is on investing the proceeds of last year’s share offering in its vascular and heart valve products. Our forecasts and valuation have been updated for this increased pace of investment.
RUA Life Sciences has reported strong results for the 12 months to March 2021 along with a positive outlook on its revenue generating businesses and development programmes. Total revenues were £1.5m and the EBIT loss was £1.6m, both better than expected, while the company closed the year with cash of £6m. The company expects to submit two FDA approval filings during the current fiscal year and the heart valve programme continues to progress and generate interesting information. RUA has provided
RUA Life Sciences has announced a short delay to the filing of its 510(k) application to the FDA for its large bore vascular graft product. The delay is due to the unexplained presence of non-toxic cellulose found during the analysis of leachable extracts from tested graft samples. Significantly, results from the more important tests (eg in vivo animal tests) were all positive. RUA will undertake additional graft testing, resulting in the delay to filing, to ensure the submission is as strong as
RUA have released a precautionary announcement noting a minor delay to the 510k submission for its large bore vascular graft. This was almost certainly due to the handling of the batch of un-implanted grafts, and we share RUA’s frustration with the resulting delay. Since we had not yet updated our valuation for a June 2021 510k submission, our fair value remains unchanged.

As midsummer’s day looms (where has this year gone?), there is greater optimism, in general, than may have been anticipated a few months ago. A post-pandemic, ‘vaccine-driven’ recovery demonstrated by increased consumer spending as lockdown measures are lifted has been one of the catalysts. The FTSE 100 has been range-bound in the last month 6,900-7,100. We have seen a combination of broadly positive company results across a range of sectors, further examples of M&A activity and a sequence of ne

EKF has delivered another strong set of results, with the step change in the scale of the business firmly consolidated. H1 revenues increased 46.5% driven by an ongoing recovery in the core business and strong demand from a number of public and private sector customers for sample collection devices. The outlook remains positive and progress is being made against the new strategy set out earlier in the year. We upgrade our FY21 revenue forecasts by 7% and EBITDA by 13% noting this still implies a

After the exceptional trading conditions in China last year comes the hangover. A further softening in pork prices highlighted at the July trading statement has led to conditions in China continuing to ease in Q2. Revenues YTD in that market are now significantly below management expectations and down YoY. Whilst some recovery is expected in H2, there looks to be much to do to make up the shortfall. More encouragingly, trading in the group’s other markets remains in line with expectations. We re

Interims show a sharp recovery in revenues (+63% YoY) and a continued improvement into H2, albeit with the caveat that visibility remains limited in the short term. The building blocks are in place for a strong growth story, but this remains dependent on elective surgery volumes normalising over a consistent period. At the moment, the recovery is somewhat stop-start in nature, hence we cautiously reinstate FY21 estimates, but leave outer years withdrawn for now.

It will be led by a refreshed executive management team and board, building on renewed strength in the core business and opportunities in developing wider contract development and manufacturing activities.

Overall, the ambition is to deliver sustainable double-digit EBITDA growth into
Fusion showed solid FY21 revenue growth of 7% to £4.2m (vs £3.9m), particularly as client projects were delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Operating loss rose marginally from £1.1m to £1.2m (reported net profit in FY21 was distorted by a £1.7m non-cash, accounting charge). This reflects strong R&D investment in the new OptiMAL service; this is due to gain commercial revenues in FY23. Fusion should then experience narrowing losses on the trajectory to profitability.

TruSpine's surgical products have multiple advantages over current technologies and should, we believe, be widely adopted once they make it through the FDA clearance process. This only requires that TruSpine demonstrate they are at least as good as current alternatives; they do not need to undergo clinical studies. Covid-19 has delayed both testing and the clearance process but we now expect the first sales of TruSpine's launch product in the autumn.
