EQS Group-Ad-hoc: Cosmo Pharmaceuticals N.V. / Key word(s): Half Year Results 
Cosmo Half-Year Report 2021 
30-Jul-2021 / 06:00 GMT/BST 
Release of an ad hoc announcement pursuant to Art. 53 LR 
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. 
 Ad hoc announcement pursuant to Art. 53 LR 
Dublin, Ireland - 30 July 2021 - Cosmo Pharmaceuticals N.V. (SIX: COPN) reports half-year results for the period ended 
30 June 2021. 
Cosmo obtained the first ever FDA approval for a device that uses artificial intelligence that to help detect signs of 
colon cancer and announced important out-licencing agreements. As a consequence of the Cassiopea licencing deal 
announced on 26 July, Cosmo will be back to profit before tax in FY21. 
Key Events Half-Year 2021 - Products and Business 
  . GI Genius(TM), the first device that uses artificial intelligence to assist clinicians in the detection lesions in 
    the colon in real time during colonoscopy, approved by the FDA. 
  . Successful outcome of our phase II Proof of Concept (POC) clinical trial of Rifamycin-MMX 600mg in Irritable Bowel 
    Syndrome with Diarrhea (IBS-D) announced. 
  . EU rights (plus Switzerland, UK, EEA countries, Russia and Mexico) for Lumeblue(TM) licenced to Alfasigma S.p.A. 
  . Cosmo's associate, Cassiopea S.p.A., announced the signing of licence and supply agreements with Sun Pharmaceutical 
    Industries for Winlevi(R) in US and Canada in July. 
  . Agreement entered into with RedHill Biopharma Ltd. (Nasdaq: RDHL) to manufacture Movantik(R), RHB-204 and Opaganib. 
Financial Highlights Half-Year 2021 
  . Revenues increased by 9.7% to EUR28.4m vs EUR25.9m last year. 
  . Expenses (net) of EUR28.4m vs EUR23.2m last year the increase mainly due to the fact that in the first half of 2020, in 
    'other income', a gain was recorded on the out-licencing of Byfavo(TM) to Acacia of EUR4.2 million and a break-fee of 
    EUR1.1 million paid by Acacia in relation in a debt equity conversion, both of which had the impact of reducing net 
  . Operating profit EUR8k vs EUR2.7m last year. 
  . Net financial expense EUR1.9m mainly includes interest on convertible bonds of EUR4.3m, of which cash impact EUR2.2m, 
    offset by interest received of EUR1.5m and FX gains of EUR0.9m. 
  . Loss for the period EUR5.7m including share of Cassiopea loss EUR2.8m. 
  . Cash inflow from operating activities EUR12.7m. 
  . Cash and investments in funds EUR203.1m at 30 June 2021 (excluding 705,773 treasury shares at cost of EUR57.4m) vs 
    EUR212.9m at 31 December 2020. 
  . Market value of Cosmo's stake in Cassiopea at 30 June 2021 EUR207.4m versus carrying value of EUR133.4m. 
  . Equity EUR371.0m vs EUR400.1m at 31 December 2020, the reduction mainly due to a reduction in the value of the equity 
    stakes held in other companies during the period.

Management change

CEO comment

Alessandro Della Chà, Chief Executive Officer, said: 'In the first half of 2021 we reached a number of very important milestones including obtaining FDA approval of GI Genius(TM). The business is very well positioned, sales of GI Genius(TM) are about to commence in the US, we are moving to replenish our pipeline and we hold EUR582m in equity stakes in other companies, investments, loans treasury shares and cash. We expect Cassiopea to close FY21 with a profit as a result of the agreement with Sun for Winlevi(R) and Cosmo's financial results will benefit in line with our stake in Cassiopea. As a result, we estimate that Cosmo will deliver a profit before tax in the range of EUR4m to EUR6m in FY21.'
