Guidance for 2020
For the year 2020, substantial net sales are not expected to be generated. CE marking will not to be obtained during 2020.
Outlook for 2021
The company will complete the processing of the CEmarking application with the Notified Body at the beginning of the year. The company’s production processes are being prepared to start the actual production. Preparations for the marketing and sales have already begun in 2020, and preparations for the launch will continue from the beginning of the year. The launch expected to begin between April and June 2021. From the end of the year 2021, the development of turnover is expected to start even more slowly, as is typical for the industry.
Ilkka Kangasniemi, CEO
The first half of 2020 was significantly more positive for the company than the previous year. The positive result of the clinical trial published by the company in the early part of the year contributed to the successful share issue in June 2020. As a result of the issues, the company raised a total of EUR 5,74 million gross in in Finnish and Swedish First North Growth Market lists. The issue was marked about one and half times over. We are pleased to say that the company has been able to operate for about two years at turning point in the company’s future. We expect the company to receive a marketing authorization for its first ARTEBONE® product during spring 2021.
In spring 2020 we still had to experience the effects of the problem that arose on the part of the authorities in our operations. Due to new medical Device Regulation (MDR 2017/745), the Notified Body (BSI) with which we have previously worked and from which we requested a new contract for the processing of the application was unable to receive the application here for half a year, because the regulation caused a large change of appeal is if congested by their organization. By EU-commission decision, the date of entry inti force of the amendments to the regulation has been postponed May 2021. Then the congested work queue of the Notified Body was released and in June 2020 we received a contract from BSI for approval. So, we finally got the CEmarking process to start one.
Preliminary results from an animal test carried out at the request of authority was obtained in June 2020. The results were as expected. The timetable for obtaining the final results is expected to be confirmed by the supplier.
Marketing and sales construction activities will begin when the authority receives the first positive interim information on the questions and comments raised by the processing of the application. We will then implement in the end of 2020 sales recruitment and measures. Due to the long-term nature of marketing, it is necessary to start these measures months before the actual launch.
