"The Safe Group closes the first half of 2021 with an overall half-year sales growth of 25% compared to the first half of 2020 driven by a 67% sales growth in the second quarter, and this in all geographical sectors in which the Group is present even if commercial actions were still limited by the health crisis until the end of May" comments Pierre Dumouchel, Chairman and CEO of Safe Group. "The acceleration of vaccination and the improvement in virus contamination curves in many countries give us confidence that the situation will return to normal in the coming months. Our group is working on accelerated growth in the second half of the year in its two activities: Safe Medical is recording an increase in customer orders and will be offering new industrial services from the third quarter onwards, thanks to the completion of our C.I.P.I 1and qualification of the clean rooms at Fleurieux. Safe Orthopaedics is speeding up surgeries with its new Sycamore and Hickory technologies, which will be CE marked in May 2021, and is gaining access to new commercial territories, with distribution in Colombia and direct sales in the United States.”

While sales stabilized in the first quarter of 2021 compared with the previous year, due in particular to the effect of the acquisition of Safe Medical in Q3 2020, the second quarter of 2021 saw a return to strong growth of 67%, bringing first-half growth to 25% for the same reasons.
In the context of the health crisis experienced in 2021, which has impacted the availability of intensive care beds and triggered hospital restriction plans resulting in the postponement of surgeries designated as "non-urgent", sales recorded in the second quarter by the French team amounted to €545k compared to €711k in 2020, down 28% in the first quarter and only 17% in the second, following the resumption of surgery.
Sales in the UK market were down 68% in the first quarter and only 8% in the second quarter. Germany, on the other hand, posted growth of +346% in the second quarter, bringing first-half growth to +189%.
The stability of international sales in the second quarter of 2021 compared with the second quarter of 2020 also reflects the effect of the recovery of surgeries in the areas where Safe Orthopaedics products are marketed.
Finally, with the success of this German success, the second quarter of 2021 saw the first surgeries performed in the United States following the first referrals recorded in hospital groups and ambulatory surgery centers (ASC).
Safe Medical was able to post sales of €412k for the second quarter of 2021, showing a 61% increase in sales compared with the previous year, confirming the sector's recovery and strong commercial momentum. This is without counting the impact of the construction of the Integrated Innovation and Production Center (CIPI), which will be delivered at the end of July in view of the first qualifications of the 180m2 of clean rooms that will go into production in the summer of 2021.
At June 30, 2021, the Safe Group's cash position amounted to €3.94 million, compared with €3.2 million at the end of June 2020. As a reminder. The balance of financing to be received amounts to k€, including a PGE of 300k€ from Safe Medical, the balance of the stimulus plan grant of 400k€ and the balance of the financing line set up in December 2020 is 3 monthly tranches of 200k€, i.e. 0.6€ over the next
