Gentian’s strategy for long-term growth and value creation

Gentian Diagnostic’s purpose is to deliver efficient diagnostics for better treatment decisions.

Today, the growing diagnostics market puts increasing pressure on clinical laboratory efficiency. However, many of the existing, clinically relevant biomarkers are available only on slow and inefficient platforms. Gentian’s solution is to utilise PETIA (Particle-Enhanced Turbidimetric Immunoassays), based on proprietary nanoparticle technology and knowhow, to convert existing biomarkers to the most efficient automated, high-throughput analysers.

Gentian’s portfolio of high-impact diagnostic tests targets several large and growing disease areas such as infections and inflammation, kidney failure and congestive heart failure. The company has four established products – Cystatin C, fCAL® turbo, Canine CRP and fPELA® turbo – that contributed to 31% annual revenue growth in 2017-2020. In addition, GCAL® - plasma and serum calprotectin has been launched and is in market development, while NT-proBNP and SARS-CoV-2 Total Antibody are in the product development phase – of which the two former have the potential to become blockbuster products. The company also has three undisclosed biomarkers in exploration and ‘proof of concept’ phases.

Gentian has a long-term ambition to generate an estimated annual revenue of NOK 1 billion in 5-7 years, up from NOK 79 million in 2020. The company’s roadmap for long-term growth and value creation is founded on six strategic pillars:

  • Grow annual revenue from the company’s four established products by 20%+ annually – by expanding market access through additional commercial partners and regulatory approvals
  • Demonstrate clinical relevance of GCAL® for the early detection of severe infections, which supports the prevention of sepsis and the severity assessment COVID-19 patients
  • Launch one new product per year
  • Secure one new contract with a global commercial partner every year, building on already established partnerships with Beckmann Coulter for Cystatin C and Bühlmann / Roche for fCAL® turbo through Bühlmann Laboratories
  • Grow gross margin ~50% in 2021 to 60%+ at volume production through economies of scale
  • Deliver long-term EBITDA margins of 40% through operational leverage and cost discipline
