REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Apr 14, 2021 (ACCESSWIRE) — Biotricity Inc. (OTCQB:BTCY), (“Biotricity” or the “Company”), a medical diagnostic and consumer healthcare technology company, is pleased to announce another record year in its revenue growth based on its unaudited, preliminary financial results for its fiscal year ended March 31, 2021. Full audited financial results will be filed with the SEC on EDGAR prior to June 14, 2021.
For fiscal 2021, management is reporting the following unaudited highlights:
- Gross revenues of $3.3 million (USD) – a 133% increase, or 2.33 times compared to prior year
- Fourth quarter 2021 year-over-year quarterly revenue increase of 203%, or 2.76 times
- Gross margins and cash-based expenses expected to be in line with prior quarters.
“We are very proud of what we have been able to achieve in fiscal 2021, despite the obvious headwinds presented by the pandemic. We look forward to continuing our strong growth momentum in the rest of this year and beyond,” stated Waqaas Al-Siddiq, Founder and CEO of Biotricity. “We achieved significant revenue growth despite the lower clinic activity associated with cardiac diagnostics due to seasonal and Covid-affected medical clinic activity in December and January.
“Just as important, the non-GAAP financial measures management uses to monitor sales activity is technology fees associated with device utilization. Biotricity had revenues of over $580,000 in technology fees and device sales in the month of March 2021 – our highest month ever in the history of the Company for this forward-leading indicator. This translates to a revenue runrate of approximately $7 million for the next twelve months, not taking into consideration the growth we expect to achieve from here. We believe we are well positioned to continue our growth momentum and expect to benefit with the re-opening of businesses. “Our sequential quarterly growth continues to demonstrate the importance of our technology and the value of our recurring revenue business model. We offer our cardiologist customers state-of-the art technology they can use to help improve patient care. We are on track to continue our strong sequential and year over year growth throughout fiscal 2022.”
The Company expects to report its final financial results for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2021 in June.

Certain Non-GAAP Information
This release contains certain financial information not derived in accordance with the United States (“U.S.”) generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). These items include device utilization, technology fees and device sales, and revenue runrate. The Company believes that the presentation of device utilization, technology fees and device sales, and revenue runrate, which are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, when considered together with the corresponding GAAP financial measures and the reconciliations to those measures, provide meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors that is indicative of the Company’s core operations. The Company considers these metrics useful to investors because they provide greater transparency into management’s view and assessment of the Company’s ongoing operating performance by removing items management believes are not representative of our continuing operations and that may distort our longer-term operating trends. We believe these measures are useful and enhance the comparability of our results from period to period and with our competitors, as well as show ongoing results from operations distinct from items that are infrequent or not associated with the Company’s core operations. The Company does not, nor does it suggest investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures as superior to, in isolation from, or as a substitute for, GAAP financial information. The Company has provided the following reconciliation of this additional information to the most comparable GAAP revenue recognition measure, as follows:
