The medtech ended the period in a strong cash position with £4.8m in the bank, and also has access to an increased credit facility of US$10m.

The company said in its report that it is focused on its ‘4S strategy,’ covering supply, sales revenue, sustainability and scale.

Glenn added: “Execution of this strategy will continue to provide us with the opportunity to build shareholder value as we broaden our opportunities in regenerative medicine, addressing many critical unmet clinical needs around the globe,” said chairman Glenn.

The company’s annual report did note some caveats with regard to the long-term effects of the pandemic, staff shortages and supply chain challenges, but said that thanks to the success of its current product line, the pipeline of new products under development and the distribution base ithas established, the board is optimistic about the short and long-term future.
