Investment summary

Carmat obtained approval in May 2017 from the French regulatory agency (ANSM) to resume its pivotal trial for the Carmat heart. Carmat is now working to expand access in the 20-25-patient study to other countries (recently sites in Czech Republic and Kazakhstan was added). It is also preparing a new and more automated production facility, to be ready in early 2018. Carmat raised €52.9m in December 2017, and with the majority of proceeds to be used towards the ongoing EU pivotal trial. Upon completion of the financing, given the firm’s 30 June 2017 net cash position of €19.9m, we estimate Carmat can finance operations into Q219.

Executive Interview - Carmat

Industry outlook

The Carmat artificial heart is being developed as a permanent replacement or destination therapy (DT) for chronic biventricular heart failure or acute myocardial infarction patients, who do not have access to a human donor heart. Despite the high EU and US prevalence of Stage IV heart failure (c 500,000 patients), the shortfall in donor hearts is such that only about 3,800 human heart transplants were performed in Europe and the US in 2013.
