SkinBioTherapeutics PLC - Newcastle, England-based life science company focused on skin health - Agrees to acquire Dermatonics Ltd for £1.7 million initially, plus up to a £1.3 million earn-out over three years. St Ives, Cambridgeshire-based Dermatonics makes topical and dermatological products for skincare and woundcare, using natural ingredients wherever possible. It has annual earnings of £230,000 on £1.8 million in revenue. SkinBioTherapeutics says the acquisition will be financed with a £1.6 million drawdown from a new £5.0 million convertible bond issue.

SkinBioTherapeutics says it also is in talks for a second acquisition in a similar sector, for which it would pay less than £2 million. The acquisition is expected to be completed in the first quarter, and, like Dermatonics, the target is cashflow positive.
