Evogene Ltd. (NASDAQ: EVGN) (TASE: EVGN), a leading computational biology company targeting to revolutionize life-science product discovery and development across multiple market segments, announced today its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2021, ended December 31, 2021.
Mr. Ofer Haviv, Evogene’s President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “With 2022 well on its way and our subsidiaries successfully advancing on their developmental activities, we believe that we are progressing to significant value enhancing milestones. Moreover, we are very proud that our subsidiaries, Lavie Bio and Canonic, recently began commercializing their products in target markets. The rapid advancement from concept to marketable product indicates the invaluable contribution Evogene’s technological engines MicroBoost AI, ChemPass AI and GeneRator AI have on life-science product development.
“As the activities of our subsidiaries mature, we continue to develop our engines with the goal of further improving their offering and potential, as engines underpinning and empowering the development of life-science products. In the years to come we intend to expand the eco-system of each of our technological engines, with the goal of expanding into new areas and new product types. Over the year, we hope to discuss this in more detail.
“It is important for us to state that we believe that our strong cash position of approximately $54 million is a demonstration of financial strength, which is particularly important in current times of instability in the financial markets. Still, to support our subsidiaries’ growth and to strengthen their position as independent companies, we are currently evaluating different funding options for the group and are in different levels of discussions with potential strategic and financial investors,” – Mr. Haviv concluded.
