In the third quarter of 2021, sales rose by 31% (compared with the first quarter of 2020), driven by the gradual recovery in surgeries and sales of the new Sycamore and Hickory products, and also due to the inclusion of Safe Medical sales after it was consolidated at the end of July 2020.

On a perimeter basis, Safe Orthopaedics' sales were down by only 3% in the third quarter after a first half down 21% compared to 2020, marking a return to growth driven by the strong increase in direct sales in Germany by 148% (€110k in Q3 2021 vs. €45k in Q3 2020) and in the US (€54k in Q3 vs. €12k in Q2), where the group has recruited a sales manager and initiated direct marketing. In France and Germany, the group also recorded the first sales generated by the new products Sycamore and Hickory CE marked on May 24 and 27, 2021 associated with very promising clinical returns that the group will communicate in the coming quarters. Indirect sales are down, impacted by the white plans in Asia Pacific and Latin America.

"Safe Group closes the third quarter of 2021 with global sales growth of 31% {excluding IFRS15 impact} compared to the first quarter of 2020. Although surgical volume has not yet returned to pre-health crisis levels, Safe Orthopaedics investments in the strategic markets of France, Germany and the US and the launch of new technologies are contributing to our growth. Safe Medical's activity has accelerated sharply since the second quarter of 2021, and it is now offering new industrial services since the qualification of its integrated production site, supporting the Group's future growth," commented Pierre Dumouchel, Chairman and CEO of Safe Group.

Internal legal reorganization of Safe Group

Following the acquisition of LCI Medical (now Safe Medical), it was decided to create a second operating subsidiary (Safe Orthopaedics SAS, wholly owned by SAFE SA) to carry out the Group's historical activities. Thus, in the context of a partial asset contribution transaction relating to a complete branch of activity, all the assets (including employees) and liabilities relating to the said historical activities were transferred on October 1, 2021 to Safe Orthopaedics SAS. Consequently, SAFE SA will retain only the administrative and financial activities and the research and innovation activities.

Cash position

At the end of the third quarter of 2021, Safe's cash position amounted to €2,523k, compared with €575k at September 30, 2020. (Unaudited figures)
