CEO COMMENTARY

Before series production, a product is successively manufactured, evaluated and improved in a number of pre-series builds where the final builds are of sufficient quality to be delivered to customers. However, pre-series manufacturing is expensive and time consuming, motivating the subsequent transfer to series production with short delivery periods and increased gross margin.

For a company with increasing sales the lack of capital is in many cases a limiting factor. The company cannot meet the rising demand due to lack of capital to invest in the often costly transition from pre-series manufacturing to series production.

In PHI’s case, the previously limited amount of available capital delayed the transition to series production. This led to a shortage of instruments, which in turn led to longer delivery periods and a reduced increase of sales. The capital injection of 37 MSEK during this past spring has now allowed us to take the final steps towards full series production, but it also allow us to address the immediate need for additional motorized HoloMonitor® M4 units by expanding pre-series manufacturing of motorized stages. The HoloMonitor M4 base unit has been transferred and is currently in series production.

Additionally, the capital injection allows us to more rapidly deliver and deploy an increasing number of instruments. Close to 70 HoloMonitor instruments are now in operation at approximately 60 cell laboratories, which has resulted in three doctoral theses and 50 scientific publications. Furthermore, the capital injection enables us to dramatically expand our strategic marketing by extending our ongoing collaborations with leading scientists to establish planned Centers of Excellence at an accelerated pace.

In summary, the recent capital injection is a game changer for PHI. The capital injection has given us substantial resources to work with influential researchers to modernize and revolutionize medical research with easy to use and affordable scientific instruments which observe living cells on their terms and not the on the destructive terms of conventional instruments.
