In the past financial year CyGenics’ tissue and cord blood banking businesses produced an increase over the previous year revenues in excess of 115%. Included in this revenue was tissue banking annuity revenue, which increased by 216% over this period and is budgeted to more than double for this financial year.

Total client numbers currently exceed 6,000 and over the past financial year increased by 73%. CyGenics is expecting a higher number of new clients in the current financial year. This growth took place across CyGenics’ existing markets namely Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. The company expects client numbers and revenue to be boosted further when CordLife India, as announced earlier this year, becomes fully operational in mid-2007.

CyGenics will continue to expand its tissue banking businesses into new geographic markets, notably those with a significant population base and higher disposable incomes. One such market is China, where CyGenics’ management have been patiently sourcing appropriate opportunities for the past five years. A Shanghai-based subsidiary was established in 2003 in preparation of implementing the right opportunity. A number of exciting transactions in the Asian region, the UK and Europe are currently under assessment.
