First sale of Ikoniscope20

Ikonisys has announced the first sale of its Ikoniscope20 microscope
solution together with reagents. The sale is, in our view, a first proof
that the commercialization strategy of migrating existing users of
Ikonisys' former Ikoniscope Gen1 platform into users of the state-of-art
Ikoniscope20 technology is correctly chosen and being implemented. With the
purchase, the buyer, Los Angeles-based 'Comprehensive Urology', a leading
urology practice serving the greater Beverly Hills area, will upgrade its
system and also utilize the optimized reagents provided by Ikonisys to
perform bladder cancer molecular diagnosis based on diagnostic fluorescence
in situ hybridisation (FISH) applications.

Compared to the first generation, of which the company has shipped 46 units
(40 of them in the US), the Ikoniscope20 is not only smaller (comparable to
a microwave versus a refrigerator-sized unit) and lighter (about 50 kg
versus 400 kg of the first generation), but also faster and more versatile.
The Ikoniscope20 microscope enables fully automated detection,
classification, and quantification of rare and very rare cells in tissues
and biological fluids. None of the larger competitors has, in our view,
currently achieved such a high level of automation as Ikonisys.

With the launch of the Ikoniscope20, product sales will play a far greater
role in the future. In this context, the conversion of software sales to a
SaaS model, and the entry into probe sales have, according to our
estimates, laid the foundations for increasing sales to EUR 35.7m by 2026e,
corresponding to an expected CAGR 2021-26e of 138.3%, and for reaching
operating profitability by 2024e.

We expect the sale to one of Ikonisys' long-term customers and key opinion
leaders to pave way for further sales and accelerate the company's
commercial activities in North America. Based on our three-stage discounted
cash flow entity model, which we consider the primary valuation method for
the Ikonisys shares, we confirm our 24-months price target of EUR 6.90 per
share and our Buy rating for the shares of Ikonisys SA.
