REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb 14, 2022 (ACCESSWIRE) — Biotricity Inc. (NASDAQ:BTCY) (“Biotricity” or the “Company”), a medical diagnostic and consumer healthcare technology company, today announced financial results for its 2022 fiscal year’s third quarter ended December 31, 2021.
Q3-FY22 financial and operating highlights include:
- Revenue of $1.93 million, an increase of 93% year-over-year and sequentially 7% above the $1.8- million reported in Q2FY22.
- Scaling well – SG&A rose just 40%, R&D up 32%, compared with 93% revenue increase.
- Net loss of $7.34 million or $0.15 per share, impacted by one-time derivative fair value and accretion expenses of $1.34 million during the quarter; excluding these non-recurring items would result in an adjusted net loss of $6.0 million or $0.12 per share.
“The December quarter was pivotal for our company, said Dr. Waqaas Al-Siddiq, Founder & CEO of Biotricity. “We were still able to generate modest sequential growth despite the challenges of omnicron, clinical closures, and reduced scheduling and staffing.
“We also had several game-changing product introductions, as well as the foundational FDA clearance of Biotres, which has greatly expanded our total addressable cardiac market and has positioned us well to make 2022 an inflectional year. Our recently completed $12 million debt financing has firmly positioned us to aggressively pursue our expansion plans and solidify our sector tech leadership.”
As important, last quarter the Company brought to market Bioheart, a heart monitor now directly available to consumers. The device offers the same continuous heart monitoring technology used by physicians. It allows patients to manage heart conditions with retrospective snapshots and long-term data collection. A first of its kind feature that is not possible through traditional solutions that require manual data collection and can only record up to a few minutes. It opens a new market and revenue stream for Biotricity and has expanded the company’s total addressable heart monitoring market by $1.24 billion. Bioheart can be purchased at www.bioheart.com and now on Amazon for $199.
“The addition of Bioheart is groundbreaking and marks an important step in achieving our ultimate goal of building a complete cardiac ecosystem to service individuals with heart health issues. I am proud to note that Bioheart was brought to market in less than a year, ahead of schedule,” Dr. Al-Siddiq added.
Additionally, in December the Company successfully completed a $12 million non-dilutive debt financing on favorable terms. Intended use of proceeds was to extinguish $1.6 million in less favorable legacy debt, support the Company’s inventory build, and finance annul recurring revenue subscriptions.
Looking ahead, the Company noted it plans to recapture any sales temporarily lost to covid in CY2021, as cardiac disease is not retreating but rather made people more aware of its risks as a co-morbidity. Biotricity is expanding its geographic footprint as it strategically adds top-tier cardiac medical salespeople, who then increase the number of cardiac centers participating in its Biotricity ecosystem. Its end goal is to collapse cardiac services within clinics and hospitals into one ecosystem – so that doctors are using the cloud-based Biotricity ecosystem not merely to deliver diagnostics, but diagnostics, disease management, remote management, and telemedicine integrated seamlessly all in one place.
“With our busy new product launch and services schedule for calendar 2022, ours is a classic case of the whole being far more valuable than the sum of its parts. Cardiac disease progression is rarely reversed, and we expect to accompany every new patient throughout their lifelong cardiac health journey with a growing spectrum of remote monitoring solutions featuring advanced AI technology,” Dr. Waqaas concluded. “Transforming the state of cardiac health is the reason I founded Biotricity.”
As part of its commitment to communicate proactively with shareholders, in December, Dr. Al-Siddiq published a comprehensive shareholder letter including milestones, a products roadmap, growth strategy, and 2022 goals. It discussed the recently FDA cleared Biotres, and the competitive advantages of a three lead device for ECG and arrhythmia monitoring intended for lower risk patients. Biotres opens a new market and increases the Company’s total addressable market from $1 billion to $5.7 billion. The device is slated to be widely available starting April 1.
