Financials

FY23 marked a year of successful advancement for Amoéba: 1) the development of its biocontrol plant commenced, poised to achieve production of 40 tonnes per annum of W. magna lysate; 2) a third scientific article was published highlighting the efficacy of its biocontrol product; and 3) the company has announced a potential further application for W. magna lysate in cosmetic skincare. Although postponement of the construction of the Cavaillon plant has been confirmed in the short term, we do not expect this to hinder European marketing authorisation of AXPERA, which management hopes will be obtained by mid-2025.
