BIONIK Laboratories Announces Second Quarter Fiscal 2020 Financial Results

 

 

TORONTO and BOSTON (November 15, 2019) – BIONIK Laboratories Corp. (OTCQB: BNKL) ("BIONIK" or the "Company"), a robotics company focused on providing rehabilitation and assistive technology solutions to individuals with neurological and mobility challenges from hospital to home, today announced financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2020, ended September 30, 2019.

 

Financial information for the second quarter of fiscal 2020:

 

·Year to date sales for the six months ended September 30, 2019 are $1,072,070, up 2% over $1,048,418 for the prior six month period ended September 30, 2018.
·Reported sales of $281,691 compared to $547,085 in the prior-year quarter

 

Corporate highlights for the second fiscal quarter and recent weeks include:

 

·Completed rollout of upgraded version of the InMotion™ ARM/HAND robotic device to the market.
·As a result of the long decision cycle of customers, following the launch of our new InMotion™ ARM/HAND robotic device, many expected decisions have been delayed into the third and fourth quarters.
·Positive outlook for new ARM/HAND robotic device, with two units shipped last quarter and two units in the last weeks.
·Expecting to release new Graphic User Interface platform on all InMotion™ robots before end of 2019 to enhance software, data management, and connectivity of devices within the rehabilitation infrastructure.
·Completed raising $9 million in convertible loans and on September 30, 2019 converted these loans and interest into 1,268,191 common shares at an average price at $7.21, substantially higher than the Company’s stock price on the conversion date.
·Continued development of an InMotion Home™ product, which is based on the same clinical concepts, clinical data and rehabilitation protocols as the professional products.
·Continued development of a lower-limb assistive exoskeleton for individuals with impaired mobility.

 

Management Commentary

 

·Commenting on the quarter, Eric Dusseux, M.D., BIONIK’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are very proud to propose to the market our new ARM/HAND robotic device, which was released earlier this year. This is a significant improvement for patient therapy, as we are now beginning to offer a customization of the connectivity of our robots combined with InMotion Connect™ capabilities, enabling hospital account managers the ability to drive better asset productivity. We see great market traction to our renewed offering with already one ARM/HAND robotic device unit shipped last quarter and two units in the last few weeks.”

 

 

   

 

BIONIK continues to expect to achieve the following milestones during the remainder of fiscal year 2020:

 

·The Company, through its partnership with Intelliware, intends to continue to roll out its connectivity software and process to provide each hospital account a customized InMotion Connect™ solution. This connectivity will enable the hospital’s management, through dashboards, to monitor asset productivity and patient outcomes, driving performance and staff satisfaction. This support includes customization of the connections, HL7 compatibility, and software to meet the requirements of the hospital systems and their EMR. Through this seamless data collection, BIONIK is conducting real-time analysis to support interpretation of patient outcomes as well as supporting the management of these hospitals and rehabilitation facilities to fast-track the adoption curve for this new technology.

 

Financial Results

 

Sales for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 were $281,691, compared with $547,085 for the quarter ended September 30, 2018. The decrease reflects the sale of two InMotion™ robots during the second quarter of fiscal 2020, including one ARM/HAND robotic device, compared with seven InMotion™ ARM robotic devices in the prior-year quarter. Ten robots have been sold year-to-date compared to 12 over the same period in 2018. In addition, deferred revenue, comprised of training to be provided and extended warranties, increased to $590,599 at September 30, 2019 from $467,778 at March 31, 2019. Extended warranties and training are important and growing parts of the Company’s business.

 

Gross margin for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 was $198,484 or 70.5%, compared to $163,012 or 27.8% for the quarter ended September 30, 2018. The higher gross margin has been achieved due to economies of scale deriving from higher volume outsourced manufacturing of the Company’s robots.

 

The Company reported a comprehensive loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 of $(3,382,684) or loss per share of $(0.87), and a comprehensive loss of $(5,503,328) or loss per share of $(1.42), for the six months ended September 30, 2019.

 

BIONIK had cash and cash equivalents of $4,674,868 as of September 30, 2019, compared to $446,779 as of March 31, 2019. The Company’s working capital at September 30, 2019 was $5,144,499, compared to a working capital of $479,408 as of March 31, 2019. The working capital increase at September 30, 2019 is due to the Company raising $9 million and converting these loans and interest into common shares at September 30, 2019.
