DeepVerge (AIM: DVRG), is pleased to announce its audited financial results for the year ended 31 December 2021. The Company’s Annual Report is included at the end of this announcement and is available on the Company’s website at www.deepverge.com.

Gerry Brandon, CEO of DeepVerge plc, commented:

“For the third year running, DeepVergehas delivered fantastic triple digit percentage growth. Revenues jumped by 107% to £9.3m and EBITDA losses fell by 98% to just £0.017m, bringing us ever closer to our first full year of profitability. The Company has truly transformed over those three years, and astute investment is now delivering significant revenues across two equally successful divisions, human health and environmental test services. The customer base has grown both in terms of number of customers and geographically, and we have delivered new and important services which will continue to drive the future growth of the business.

Labskin is thriving and 2021 saw the launch of the Skin Trust Club which has rapidly gained momentum and is firmly cemented as the new era of personalised skin care. Through Modern Water, we expanded our geographic reach and we have been actively involved in multiple government, regional and municipal city infrastructure trials to deliver real-time alerts for the identification of viruses, pathogens and forever chemicals. I could not be prouder of the hard work and commitment delivered by the DeepVerge team and 2022 Q1 sales have increased by 84% and this momentum of growth is expected to continue. ”
