To achieve this, we will continue our drive for growth, control expenses, leverage synergies within the BRAIN Group and further optimize processes. We will continue to focus on our incubator pipeline and manage it systematically as communicated before. To help achieve our goals, we have defined clear responsibilities within the individual companies and throughout the Group. Hence, during the last two years we have created the conditions for profitable growth and we are confident that the BRAIN team will achieve our communicated ambitious goals.”

This positive trend has strongly continued in the first quarter of the new fiscal year. We currently have a solid cash position and aim to return to a stable growth path in financial year 2021/22. Our gene-editing technology platform, which we are currently developing, will be a major driver for this. We are on a very good path and have also expressed this in our quantitative full-year guidance.”

BRAIN Biotech AG is a leading European supplier of bio-based products and solutions such as enzymes and proteins, microbial production strains, natural compounds and biotechnological solutions for more sustainable industrial processes. The company focuses on the fields of nutrition, health and environment.

BRAIN Biotech AG is the parent company of the international BRAIN Biotech Group. The Group's business activities are divided into three segments: The BioProducts segment comprises the product business with specialty enzymes and other proteins, for which the Group operates fermentation facilities in the United Kingdom and production facilities in continental Europe and the United States. The BioScience segment offers research-intensive custom solutions based on enzyme technology, strain development, bioprocess development and natural product screening. The BioIncubator segment conducts its own R&D projects or those initiated with partners with high value-added potential. A particularly promising incubator project is the development of the Company's own CRISPR-based gene editing technology platform, which is currently being established and expanded by Akribion Genomics (in foundation planning).

Through its own R&D activities, BRAIN Biotech Group is continuously expanding its product portfolio in the field of specialty enzymes and small molecules. The latter are the starting point for screenings, e.g. for novel drug candidates for pharmaceutical applications.
