Recent and Second Quarter Highlights include:
• In-licensed global rights to Healthimation, LLC’s mobile application based digital program, a well-validated and award-winning 12-week program to help patients manage their weight as part of a diabetes prevention or management program.

• Appointed Justin McLarney as the Company’s Chief Financial Officer
• Commissioned the integration of data from third-party wearable devices into the proBEAT™ app.
• Submitted the PMA application for sugarBEAT® to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
• Completed $11.5M public offering ($10.7M after associated costs)
• Terminated ATM with Maxim
“The second quarter has been pivotal to our Company, as we have laid the groundwork for product launch of sugarBEAT® in the UK and Europe, and a diabetes management and reversal program in the USA” commented Faz Chowdhury, Nemaura’s CEO. “We continue to carefully manage our finances as we plan for a multinational launch and believe that we are at the forefront of changing the way consumers approach managing and preventing diabetes.”
In December 2020 in the U.S., Nemaura plans to launch proBEAT™, a non-invasive, wearable glucose monitor that will gather data on factors affecting blood glucose profiles, combined with a behavioral change and weight management digital app that was developed by Healthimation Inc. that may help diabetic and pre-diabetic patients better manage, reverse, or prevent the onset of diabetes. In the U.S., there are currently 88 million patients considered to be pre-diabetic and 25 million patients with Type 2 diabetes. Worldwide, there are 420 million patients with diabetes and over 1 billion people considered pre-diabetic.
Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results
Net loss for the second quarter of 2020 was $1,581,217 as compared to $1,117,040 during the same period of 2019.
Research and development expenses were $456,280 and $462,517 for the three-month periods ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. This continues to be largely composed of expenditure on wages and sub-contractor activities incurred in finalizing the product design for the sugarBEATTM device in order to enable scaling of production capacity.
General and administrative expenses were $771,533 and $654,523 for the three-month periods ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Given the nature of the Company’s activities has remained unchanged, the cost drivers in this area have also remained consistent and are largely representative of fees for legal, professional, consultancy, audit services, investor relations, insurance, and wages.
The Company also incurred a charge of $353,404 for the three-month period ended September 30, 2020 on account of the accretion of debt discount in relation to the Secured Loan Note that the Company entered into in April 2020.
Cash as of September 30, 2020 was $16,948,939..
