Investment summary

Carbios’s 2017 results were an important staging post on the journey from a pure research operation towards a market-ready business. The Thanaplast research programme concluded in 2017, having reached all the milestones set at its inception. Carbios received the final payment of €1m under the Thanaplast programme in H217. However Carbios continues to make progress scientifically and recently announced that it had achieved the hydrolysis of PET plastics into their original building-blocks at a conversion rate of 97% in 16 hours. The balance sheet has also been strengthened and operations are fully funded into 2019. Announcements of partnership deals with other consumer brand owners, similar to that announced with L’Oréal, could act as a further share price catalyst. Our remodelled DCF provides an indicative valuation for Carbios of €15/share.
