VANCOUVER and MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire – Neovasc Inc. (“Neovasc” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ, TSX: NVCN) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Recent Highlights

  • Generated revenues of $818,000, a quarterly record and a year-over-year increase of 29% over the second quarter of 2021.

  • Advanced enrollment in the COSIRA II trial with 40 patients enrolled and 21 patients randomized across 10 sites.

  • COSIRA II protocol supplement was approved by the FDA, more than doubling the total number of patients and adding specific patient groups eligible and allowed for treatment in the trial.

  • Accelerated direct sales in the United Kingdom as of July 1, 2022  and added Neovasc sales reps.

  • Announced and highlighted an additional third-party publication supporting the Reducer device.

“I am very pleased with the progress our team made advancing our value creation strategies, which resulted in another quarter of record revenues,” said Fred Colen, President and Chief Executive Officer. “In Europe, we followed up our successes with reimbursement by creating a direct sales team in the UK which will advance Reducer as a viable treatment for refractory angina in that key market. In the important US market, enrollment in the pivotal COSIRA II trial is progressing well, and we received more good news when the FDA approved a protocol supplement which doubles the pool of eligible patients to be enrolled and studied. We look forward to equally strong performance in the second half of 2022.”

Financial Results for the Second quarter Ended June 30, 2022

For the three months ended June 30, 2022, revenues increased by 29% to $818,000 compared to revenues of $633,000 for the same period in 2021.

The cost of goods sold for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was $158,000 compared to $109,000 for the same period in 2021. The overall gross margin for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was 81% compared to 83% gross margin for the same period in 2021 as we wrote down some obsolete inventory.

Total expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2022 were approximately $8.8 million compared to approximately $9.6 million for the second quarter of 2021, representing a decrease of approximately $742,000 or 8%, substantially due to a decrease in non-cash share-based payments, a decrease in the impairment charge to fixed assets in June 2021, a decrease in employee termination expenses related to pausing Tiara TF in June 2021, and a decrease in litigation expenses. These were partially offset by an increase employee expenses as we accrued for a portion of annual bonuses that were not accrued, but were incurred, in the prior period, a one-time distributor transition fee as we moved to a direct sales force in the United Kingdom, and increased selling expenses as we initiated activities in new markets.

The operating losses and comprehensive losses for the three months ended June 30, 2022 were approximately $8.2 million and $9.0 million, respectively, or $3.29 basic and diluted loss per share, as compared with approximately $9.1 million operating losses and $9.3 million comprehensive loss, or $3.35 basic and diluted loss per share, for the same period in 2021.

The Company ended the quarter with approximately $37.6 million in cash.

As of August 9, 2022, after the effect of the share consolidation, the Company had 2,743,143 Common Shares issued and outstanding.
