Cash and cash equivalents amounted to $192.3 million as of March 31, 2023, compared to $209.2 million as of December 31, 2022, which is a net decrease of $16.9 million due to:

(1)   $20.8 million of cash used for operations, mainly driven by the impact of the initiation of the VITESSE trial in early March 2023. Cash used for operations increased by $19.3 million compared to the same quarter last year. During the first quarter of 2022, the Company received $20.9 million from French tax authorities as reimbursement of 2019 and 2020 research tax credits.


(2)   Partially offset by a $3.9 million positive impact of changes in exchange rates. The Company’s treasury position, stated in US Dollars, has been impacted by an appreciation of the Euro against the US Dollar during the first quarter of 2023.
