BIONIK Laboratories Announces Third Quarter Fiscal 2020 Financial Results
TORONTO & BOSTON—February 14, 2020-- 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 third quarter of fiscal year 2020, ended December 31, 2019.
Financial information for the third quarter of fiscal 2020:
|·||Year to date sales for the nine months ended December 31, 2019 are $1,230,074.|
|·||Reported sales of $158,005 compared to $930,257 in the prior-year quarter; the decrease from the prior period was primarily due to the delay in receiving a purchase order for six robots received in early January 2020 that the Company expected to receive before December 31, 2019, and the inability by its Chinese JV partner to import robotic devices in China.|
Corporate highlights for the third fiscal quarter and recent weeks include:
|·||Completed rollout of upgraded version of the InMotion® ARM/HAND robotic device to the market.|
|·||The Company wrote off in the third fiscal quarter the sale of three InMotion® ARM/HAND robotic devices sold to its Chinese JV, after the Company had to cancel the sale of five InMotion® ARM robotic devices sold to the Chinese JV, due to the inability to import robotic devices to China.|
|·||Received regulatory approval from the South Korea Food and Drug Ministry for the Company's InMotion® ARM; days later the Company's exclusive distributor in South Korea reported its first sale of the InMotion® ARM to SeoSung Rehabilitation Hospital, opening March 1, 2020.|
|·||Released a new Graphic User Interface on all new InMotion® robots at the end of 2019.|
|·||Partnered with Intelliware to meet the data connectivity needs of hospitals and healthcare facilities utilizing sensored technologies by providing seamless connectivity between InMotion® robotic devices and hospital information systems. BIONIK’s new InMotion® Connect platform targets the critical need to link patient centric rehabilitation results to patient management portals and electronic medical records (EMR) to any hospital or rehabilitation facility.|
|·||Partnered with Propel to accelerate new product development and manufacturing of InMotion® robotic systems and services through enhanced Product Lifecycle Management and Quality Management System solutions.|
|·||Launched a new fund raising of $3 million in convertible loans (up to $7M) to be converted no later than March 31, 2020.|
|·||Continued development of an InMotion® Home and next generation platform, which is based on the same clinical concepts, clinical data and rehabilitation protocols as the professional products.|
|·||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, now improved with an enhanced Graphic User Interface, which we believe is a significant improvement for patient therapy. We see great market traction to our renewed offering with six ARM/HAND robotic devices ordered in the last few weeks. On another note, we are thrilled to receive approval from the South Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety for our InMotion® ARM robotic systems. This entry into the South Korean market is significant for our Company as we continue to seek penetration throughout Asia, where the medical robotic technologies market is growing rapidly.”|
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 customize InMotion® Connect for its strategic accounts, deploying its connectivity hardware and software and putting in place the process to provide each hospital account a customized InMotion® Connect solution. This support includes customization of the connections, HL7 compatibility if needed, 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.|
Sales for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 were $158,005, compared with $930,257 for the quarter ended December 31, 2018. The decrease reflects the sale of one InMotion® ARM/HAND robot during the third quarter of fiscal 2020, compared with nine InMotion® ARM robotic devices in the prior-year quarter. Eleven robots have been sold year-to-date compared to 21 over the same period in 2018. In addition, deferred revenue, comprised of training to be provided and extended warranties, increased to $677,752 at December 31, 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 December 31, 2019 was $14,410 or 0.9%, compared to $479,953 or 51.6% for the quarter ended December 31, 2018. The lower gross margin is due to the Company providing 2 robots at no charge to a customer who was promised an upgrade in 2016.
The Company reported a comprehensive loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 of $(2,969,949) or loss per share of $(0.58), and a comprehensive loss of $(8,473,278) or loss per share of $(1.99), for the nine months ended December 31, 2019.
BIONIK had cash and cash equivalents of $1,893,517 as of December 31, 2019, compared to $446,779 as of March 31, 2019. The Company’s working capital at December 31, 2019 was $2,714,130, compared to a working capital of $479,408 as of March 31, 2019. The working capital increase at December 31, 2019 is due to the Company raising $9 million and converting these loans and interest into common shares at September 30, 2019.
