Regulatory News:

Ikonisys SA (Euronext Growth Paris: ALIKO), a leading company in early and accurate cancer diagnosis through cutting-edge and fully automated solutions for medical analysis laboratories, today announces that Hospitex International has secured two contracts for the supply of its products in Italy both for a 4-year term. The first contract involves the supply of BLOCKfast cytology kits to the Azienda USL Valle d'Aosta, and the second covers the supply of single-layer cytology for the ASL TO5 in Moncalieri.

Winning these public tenders is another endorsement of the quality and reliability of the diagnostic solutions offered by Hospitex International. The proposed products were selected for their unique technological features, with significant improvements compared with the previously used technologies. Those have been acknowledged by public entities that have underscored the effectiveness and robustness of Hospitex's solutions, confirming that the products are extensively tested and certified.

With these new contracts, Ikonisys and Hospitex further strengthen their positions in the diagnostic technology market, showing significant growth potential for the Group. The trust expressed by healthcare institutions through the awarding of public tenders reflects the growing opportunities in advanced diagnostic solutions. This success enables Ikonisys to further increase its position and ultimately the value creation for its shareholders, thanks to its innovative solutions and leading position in cancer diagnosis.

As a reminder, BLOCKfast is an innovative kit dedicated to the preparation of cytological inclusions using a rapid method at room temperature and a natural replacement for the plasma-thrombin-based cytological inclusion method, which can no longer be used under current blood product legislation.

The BLOCKfast kit offers several advantages. The reagents used are non-flammable, ensuring a safer working environment. The method allows the simultaneous preparation of multiple samples, thus optimizing time and improving the efficiency of the diagnostic process. The colored matrix included in the kit facilitates the rapid identification of the sample in paraffin and optimizes the cutting phase, ensuring that the cellular morphology remains unchanged. Furthermore, BLOCKfast is designed for morphological, immunohistocytochemical, and molecular analysis, offering a comprehensive solution for various diagnostic needs.

Securing these two contracts with the Azienda USL Valle d'Aosta and the ASL TO5 not only strengthens Hospitex's market position but also represents a high-level endorsement, attesting that the proposed technologies meet rigorous quality and performance standards in particular by major healthcare institutions operating in areas with complex and strategically important diagnostic needs.

Mario Crovetto, CEO of Ikonisys, and Alessandro Nosei, COO of Hospitex, commented: "We are proud to have been selected by local companies, which further confirms the effectiveness of our diagnostic solutions in the oncology field. Our commitment is even more enhanced under these circumstances to successfully improving and streamlining oncology diagnosis. The recent awards, especially by public and healthcare entities, show that our technologies are appreciated and recognized for their reliability and innovativeness. Based on these achievements, we aim at positioning our future combined entities at the forefront of oncology diagnosis."

Ikonisys and Hospitex are committed to continuing their path of innovation, aiming to further expand their offerings and penetrate new markets. The future strategy includes investments in research and development, strategic collaborations, and the expansion of the distribution network to capitalize on emerging market opportunities.
