Celemics, a global pioneer of personalized medicine genetics, today announced its expansion into the North American market with the establishment of Celemics America, Inc.Celemics, the first Next Generation Sequencing test kit manufacturer in both Asia and Europe, has secured itself in the global market as a pioneer of Target Enrichment methodology and sample preparation for DNA sequencing and genetic testing. Next Generation Sequencing, or NGS, facilitates both hereditary and somatic genetic testing more accurately, quickly, and cost effectively than traditional methods of DNA sequencing. For organizations providing Next Generation Sequencing services, Celemics incorporates its proprietary synthetic probe rebalancing technology in its test kits and panels to ensure maximum performance and accuracy.Targeted Sequencing involves isolating genomic regions of interest from the whole genome and utilizes synthetic strands of DNA or RNA called probes, which assist in detecting the presence of a gene in a long DNA sequence. In order to address uniformity and coverage limitations associated with Targeted Sequencing, Celemics has developed and introduced a technology which incorporates precise rebalancing of probes following a pre-production pilot test. "Not all genetic regions are created equally" said Hyojun Han, Ph.D, Director of Research and Development at Celemics. "Some regions prove much more challenging to capture than others which can make it more difficult to detect genetic mutations within these regions. Our probe rebalancing technology was conceived and developed to specifically address this common issue".Celemics America, Inc. will initiate commercial operations in the U.S. with a primary goal of expanding this technology to North American markets to make contributions to Precision, or Personalized Medicine. Precision Medicine is the term used by medical and healthcare professionals to describe the emerging approach to coordinate disease prevention and treatment based upon an individual's lifestyle patterns and genetic variability."Precision Medicine is now at the forefront of the U.S. medical landscape" said Hyoki Kim, Ph.D, CEO of Celemics. "Celemics America will make a vital contribution to Precision Medicine by ensuring that Next Generation Sequencing service providers can feel confident in the accuracy and efficiency of their testing results through incorporating our Target Enrichment technology".Celemics America's product line will consist of both pre-defined and custom content Next Generation Sequencing test kits and panels. About CelemicsCelemics Inc., a privately held company based in Seoul, South Korea, develops and manufactures proprietary DNA and genetic sequencing test kits and panels. In addition to test kit manufacturing, Celemics also provides a full spectrum of Next Generation Sequencing and Bioinformatics services to university researchers, hospitals, care providers, and pharmaceutical organizations.

Celemics: Not All NGS Companies Are the Same
Asia's first and only proprietary tech-based NGS target capture kit developer Celemics develops target capture kits for next-generation sequencing (NGS) applications based on its proprietary molecular cloning technology called MSSIC (Massively Separated and Sequence-Identified Cloning). Target capture kits, which play a key role in NGS technology-based targeted sequencing, are commercially produced by only six companies in the world including Celemics. Investment points: 1) rapid NGS market growth; 2) business/overseas expansion The global NGS market continues to grow alongside technological advancements and sequencing cost declines. In addition to diagnostics, NGS technology is expected to be used in a wider range of applications including new drug development, microbiome, and seed development. As a result, the size of the global NGS market is projected to grow at a rapid pace from USD6.3bn in 2018 to USD31.4bn (KRW35tr) by 2026. Steep market growth, in turn, should lead to stronger demand for target capture kits. Celemics, backed by its advanced technology and services vs. peers, will likely enjoy notable growth in market share going forward. In addition, the company’s expansion into sequencing solutions and overseas markets should pick up pacefrom 2020 with the release of its NGS solution, BTSeq (Barcode-Tagged Sequencing). Initiate coverage with BUY and a conservative target price of KRW40,000 We initiate coverage of Celemics with BUY for a target price of KRW40,000. Our target price is based on the present value of the EPS forecast of KRW1,239 for 2022 (reflecting expectations for improvement in operating margins to peer average levels backed by overseas and BTSeq sales) and a target PER of 37.9x (15% discount to the PER average of peers). On the first day of listing, Celemics shares gained just 29% vs. the IPO price. However, we believe Celemics sets itself apart from other listed domestic NGS companies, as: 1) one of the six companies in the world that have succeeded in the commercialization of target capture kits for NGS applications; and 2) a company capable of expanding beyond the domestic market to overseas markets for faster earnings growth. Recently-listed US peer Twist Bioscience is currently trading at a market cap of USD3bn (roughly KRW3.6tr), even with the company's target capture kit-related sales standing at just KRW25.3bn as of 2019. Considering the upbeat earnings outlook, Celemics shares appear excessively undervalued at current price levels.
