For the first three months 2014, total revenues reached €1,277,349, up from €796,101 for the same period in 2013.

The Company did not sell any Diallertest® to its commercial partner over the period.Net cash position at 31 March 2014 As of 31 March 2014, DBV's cash position amounted to €34.6 million, compared with €39.4 million three months earlier. The cash burn therefore amounted to €4.8 million for the first three months 2014. David Schilansky, Chief Financial Officer, commented: "Six months away from phase II VIPES' results, a key step in the Company's development, and soon with 6 clinical programs running simultaneously, keeping control of our cash burn remains an important challenge for DBV. The cash burn for the first quarter was in line with our expectations, and illustrates our attention to contain the pace of our spending before Viaskin Peanut enters into phase III, as planned in 2015." DBV Technologies will announce its financial results for the first six months on 28 July 2014.
