PARIS, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cellectis (Alternext: ALCLS), the French genome engineering specialist, today published its consolidated financial statement for the half-year ending June 30, 2010: revenues increased 25% over H1 2009, expenditure increased 50% and the company ended the period with euro 38 million in cash reserves.

"The figures for this half year reflect our growth strategy," said Andre Choulika, CEO at Cellectis. "Cellectis' staff has doubled in a year and comprises 130 people today, in all entities, compared to 65 in July 2009. This has allowed us to strengthen our position, in all aspects of our business, with highly competent and committed people."

"The capital increase that was made in October 2009 allows us to finance this rapid growth and support our ambitious external growth strategy," added Marc Le Bozec, CFO at Cellectis.
