Achiko AG Reports Key Unaudited Financial Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2021

05/19/2022 | 08:23am EDT
  • Full year unaudited adjusted EBITDA loss of USD$5,272,179 (2020: USD$8,728,709 loss) following 6 months unaudited loss of USD$3,915,136 to June 30, 2021 and closing Shareholders Equity of USD ($4,297,969) (2020: USD$4,052,073).
  • Restructuring of the European operations in mid-2021 resulted in lower operating costs in the second half of the year and a smaller loss with a stronger execution record in the last 6 months.
  • Audited accounts at the end of the month and AGM in June 2022.

ZURICH, Switzerland, May 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ad hoc announcement pursuant to Art. 53 LRAchiko AG (SIX: ACHI; OTCQB: ACHKF; ISIN CH0522213468) (“Achiko”, the “Company”) is pleased to report ahead of audited accounts to be presented later this month, the key unaudited financial results for the Company for the period ending December 31, 2021.

After reporting an adjusted EBITDA (excluding stock-based compensation) loss of USD$3,915,136 in the six months period to June 30, 2021, adjusted EBITDA for the full year was a loss of USD$5,272,179 (2020: $8,728,709). Revenue for the full year was USD ($60,014) (2020: $2,805,708) representing the transition period between one business and another and closing Shareholder’s Equity on December 31, 2021 was USD ($4,297,969) (2020: $4,052,073).  

These numbers may be updated when the Company completes work around stock-based compensation and the audit. The Company expects share-based compensation to fall significantly from the first half of the year as any additional grants to secure replacement or alternative personnel as part of the Company's restructuring were significantly lower later in the year than in prior periods.

“To better allocate shareholder capital to measuring the performance of our low cost AptameX™ Covid-19 rapid test and have it registered and ready for sale, the Company restructured its operating footprint in Europe in the middle of 2021,” stated Steven Goh, CEO of Achiko AG.

“Whilst the Company faced a challenging restructure in the second half of the year, the recent string of post balance sheet execution milestones vindicates the investment,” added Goh. “These include being able to report a financing in August and September 2021, solid product performance results in January 2022, a strong marketing and sales deal in April with Nahdlatul Ulama and Indopharma, and finally obtaining a CE Mark a few days ago. We are confident that the leaner organization is able to execute more decisively going forward.”

The Company expects to publish audited accounts and an annual report before month’s end and hold an Annual General Meeting on June 27, 2022.
