Loughborough, England, July 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nemaura Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: NMRD) (“Nemaura” or the “Company”), a medical technology company focused on developing and commercializing a daily disposable, wearable glucose sensor and supporting personalized lifestyle coaching programs, today provides a business update and financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2023.
- Entered into a Registered Direct Offering and concurrent Private Placement for gross proceeds of approximately $8.4 million (before expenses).
- Signed a preliminary agreement with Eversana to support a planned commercial launch of its Diabetes and Metabolic Health programs in the USA.
- Announced initial patient data from UK NHS (National Health Service) Miboko Study that thus far demonstrated weight loss in 100% of participants, with further studies ongoing. The data is expected to support reimbursement applications and product marketing in various territories.
- Continued to work with Benchmark Electronics Inc as a contract manufacturing partner (CMO) to facilitate future volume scale-up manufacture of the electronic transmitter at its FDA approved facility in Thailand, in anticipation of commercial-sales ramp-up.
- Completed phased delivery of transmitters against the purchase order received from MSW in December 2021.
- Received a provisional purchase order for 1.7 million sensors from its licensee TPMENA in anticipation of product registration in the KSA.
“We continue to build momentum on both manufacturing activities and consumer feedback through pilot trials, in preparation for scaling up commercial sales activities. The trials with the NHS in the UK have demonstrated the commercial potential for our sensors and digital health and wellbeing programs and has allowed us to undertake continuous refinements prior to commercial scale-up initiatives. Similarly, we believe working with world-class contract manufacturers and advancing our manufacture scale-up, and ensuring a well-managed supply chain through forward planning will support our planned commercial endeavours”, commented Dr Faz Chowdhury, CEO of Nemaura medical. “During the new fiscal year our focus is on global partnerships and revenue ramp-up, leveraging off the progress we have made on the product refinement and feedback, and product manufacture”.
FY2022 Financial Summary:

General and administrative expenses were $6,590,227 and $6,173,049 for the fiscal years ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively.
