Nemaura Medical Reports Fiscal Third Quarter 2023 Results and Provides Business Update
Loughborough, England, Feb. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nemaura Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: NMRD) (“Nemaura” or the “Company”), a medical technology company focused on developing and commercializing non-invasive wearable sensors and supporting personalized lifestyle and weight reduction programs, today releases its financial results for the quarter ending December 31, 2022 and provides a business update.
Recent Corporate Highlights:
- Announced initial patient data from UK NHS Miboko Study that demonstrates weight loss in 100% of participants – study to continue for 12 months.
- Received first U.S.-based purchase order for 5,000 proBEAT™ subscriptions from HealthFleet Inc., a leading telehealth provider focusing on care, coaching, and health recommendations. The purchase order consists of 75,000 proBEAT glucose sensors over an initial five month period and is valued at $500,000 in revenue.
- Entered into a Registered Direct Offering and concurrent Private Placement for gross proceeds of approximately $8.4 million (before expenses) in January 2023.
“We continue to build momentum with our UK programs, while initiating our foothold in the U.S. The recent purchase order from HealthFleet marks the beginning of our commercialization efforts in the U.S., integrating our proBEAT technology into HealthFleet’s RestoreHealth program to potentially improve diabetes management and weight loss. This is a significant step forward towards the integration of our sensor technology into existing diabetes management programs in the U.S.,” commented Nemaura CEO Dr. Faz Chowdhury. “With Miboko, the encouraging early patient data from our UK NHS Miboko study that demonstrated weight loss in 100% of participants is very encouraging and bodes well for the future of that program. There are obviously many weight loss programs on the market, but this early Miboko data exceeds the results seen in some of these other programs. With our balance sheet strengthened by the recent capital raise, we are better positioned to execute on our commercialization efforts and strategic goals in 2023.”
3Q23 Financial Summary:
- Reported revenue based on delivery of product from the purchase order from its UK licensee in 2021 with an anticipated gradual ramp of revenue expected in coming quarters.
- Net loss for the quarter was approximately $1.7million. Additional headcount was added to support the operational scale-up process, to continue building product inventory to fulfil existing purchase orders, and to support ongoing and future commercial sales activities.
- Cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2022 were approximately $7.3 million.
