evolution of sales over the period

Group sales remained steady over the first half of 2017 compared to the
previous year despite solid performance during the month of June,
notably in the U.S. where sales increased 10% over the prior year
period. The global breakdown of the Group's revenue demonstrates an
ongoing growth trend in France, the Company's domestic direct sales
market, where sales increased by 8% compared to the first half of 2016.
In Brazil, the Company's historic leading export distribution market,
the Company continued to face challenges related to local economic and
regulatory factors leading to a 63% decrease in sales in the period
compared to H1 2016. In April 2017, the Brazilian regulatory body,
ANVISA, performed a long-awaited mandatory inspection of the Company's
recently-opened combined headquarters and manufacturing facilities in
France. Following the successful ANVISA inspection, activity with Brazil
is expected to resume in early 2018.

Revenue generated by Medicrea's UNiD™ ASI systems technology for
personalized spine continued to accelerate throughout the first half of
2017, particularly in the U.S. where a growth of 41% was seen compared
to the first half of 2016. Since the Company FDA-cleared the first-ever
personalized approach to spine surgery with patient-specific implants in
November of 2014, the number of cases performed in the U.S. has now
surpassed the total internationally and reached more than $15 million in
cumulative sales at the end of the first half of 2017 for UNiD™ TEK and
associated Medicrea implants, particularly the patient-specific UNiD Rod
used in conjunction with the Company's portfolio of PASS® spinal systems
for degenerative and complex spinal indications.

As of the end of the first half of 2017, more than 1,500 UNiD™ ASI
surgeries have been performed worldwide with a record number of UNiD™
TEK, patient-specific implants, manufactured and used in surgery during
the month of June. The Company also performed the world's first
personalized minimally-invasive spine surgery in the U.S. by developing
and launching patient-specific UNiD™ MIS Rod for minimally-invasive
spine surgery.

Denys Sournac, President and CEO of Medicrea, stated, "The significant
FDA clearances obtained in the first half of 2017 evidence the Company's
focus of placing UNiD™ ASI technology for Adaptive Spine Intelligence
into the hands of surgeons. We are creating easy-to-use compatible
implant hardware and IT software systems that surgeons know and trust.
The addition of PASS®
will open new doors for Medicrea to gain market share for our
patient-specific UNiD™ Rod, by lowering the barrier to entry for the
large number of surgeons trained on top-loading instrumentation."

Recently, the Company announced FDA clearance of the UNiD™
, a data-driven digital portal with surgical strategy and
predictive modeling functionality, as well as the FDA clearance for and
first U.S. surgery with the PASS® TULIP top-loading fixation, presenting
an elegant solution to surgeons trained on this system - the global
standard for posterior fixation.
