First Quarter 2024 Financial Results and Business update

Cameron Reynolds, President and Group Chief Executive Officer of Volition said: “Throughout this quarter we have continued to work on a number of opportunities with the aim of ensuring Volition is cash flow neutral in 2025 with a mix of non-dilutive funding, revenue growth and milestone payments from out licensing, as we already achieved in our Volition Vet subsidiary, and through further cost reduction measures targeting $10 million in annualized reductions. We are making strong and necessary decisions to preserve capital in the company whilst ensuring we deliver on our vision and mission. We believe that we are now close to receiving large amounts of data for both Nu.Q® NETs and Capture-PCR™ and consequently, subsequent to quarter end, we are taking some necessary actions to significantly reduce expenditures and cash burn as we concentrate on commercialization.

“We have invested significantly over recent years to build out our product pillars and to ensure we have robust scientific and clinical evidence to support our potential breakthrough technologies.  Following our anticipated receipt, by the end of June, of a substantial amount of new clinical data, we intend to have a laser focus on commercializing these technologies.

“Our strategy is to monetize our intellectual property through licensing or other agreements, similar to our approach with Volition Vet. If successful, we believe that this strategy could provide us with meaningful milestone payments in the next 12 months, followed by ongoing payments and royalties.

“We have had a busy start to 2024 and look forward to delivering on some exciting milestones ahead, in particular publishing new data for Nu.Q® NETs and for our potential breakthrough cancer detection method, Capture-PCR™, later this year. While the revenue ramp from Nu.Q® Vet has taken longer than anticipated, we do expect revenues to accelerate in the second half of 2024 due to the two important recent product launches by Antech Diagnostics and Fujifilm Vet Systems.”

Financial Highlights

  • Cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2024, totaled approximately $11.8 million.
  • Recorded approximately $170,000 in revenue in the first quarter of 2024, up 15% over the prior year.
  • Cost reduction measures underway with a target of $10 million in annualized reductions.
  • Applied/or in the process of applying for $25 million in non-dilutive grants from funding bodies in the U.S., with a further $18 million in Europe.
