TORONTO & BOSTON – June 30, 2020 - BIONIK Laboratories Corp. (OTCQB:BNKL) ("BIONIK"), 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 fiscal year ended March 31, 2020.

 

Financial highlights for the fiscal year 2020 and recent weeks include:

 

·Reported sales of $2,153,354 for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020.

 

·Increased sales of service contracts and warranties, which are building a deferred revenue base for consistent future service revenues, representing $616,063 for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020, a $148,285 increase from fiscal year 2019.

 

·Increased margin of 58.5% for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020 compared to 49.8% for fiscal year 2019, primarily due to efficiencies in outsourced manufacturing.

 

·Launched new offering of up to $7 million in convertible loans to be converted no later than March 31, 2021.

 

·Raised $70,000 in convertible indebtedness in the new offering during fiscal year 2020 and approximately $1,502,569 has been committed or received subsequent to fiscal year-end.

 

·Received a loan of $2,000,000 from a major shareholder with a maturity date of March 2022 or at the option of the loan holder can be converted in common stock of the Company.

 

·Received a loan of $459,912 pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program under the U.S. CARES Act. The Company intends to apply for forgiveness for all or a portion of the loans in accordance with applicable law.

 

Corporate highlights for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020 and recent weeks include:

  

·On June 25, 2020, launched InMotion Connect™, a cloud-based data analytics solution, which combines real-time robot data with deep expertise of BIONIK’s clinical specialists to partner with each clinic, promoting robot utilization, supporting clinician engagement, and enhancing patient care by providing contextual and relevant data to reach hospital clinicians and management teams when it matters the most.

  

·Received regulatory approval in January 2020 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.

 

Management Commentary

 

Commenting on the 2020 fiscal year, Dr. Eric Dusseux, BIONIK’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “Over the past two years, BIONIK has reimagined its portfolio of products, software, and data-management solutions. In the last year, the launch of an improved Graphic User interface for our InMotion® products, and now the launch of InMotion ConnectTM in June 2020 improved greatly the interest in BIONIK’s suite of products but delayed some strategic account opportunities, given their decision cycles. Although BIONIK put in place a Business Continuity Plan to assure a minimal impact to our customers and our business partners, the COVID-19 pandemic impacted negatively the sales during our last quarter. BIONIK shipped several units during this quarter and donated one InMotion® robotic system to Einstein Healthcare Network’s MossRehab for use in its new pioneering COVID-19 rehab unit. Additionally, we successfully installed for one of our U.S. clients our recently launched cloud-based data solution platform InMotion ConnectTM, the single platform that can be accessed anywhere, anytime, and helps increase technology adoption due to convenience and ease-of-use for the clinician, hospital management and headquarter teams. This is a new step for BIONIK in providing powerful data solutions to improve neurological rehabilitation.”

 

 

 

 

BIONIK continues to expect to achieve the following milestones during fiscal year 2021:

 

·Continue to expand sales channels in North America and abroad, integrating in our strategy the recent termination of the Company’s 3-year old cooperative joint venture and distribution and licencing arrangement in China.

  

·Further develop InMotion Connect™ solutions to serve clinical rehabilitation providers.

  

·Work with our commercial outsourced manufacturing partner to enhance effectiveness in order to support the expected increase in product demand and introduction of new products.

  

·Increase sales of data solutions, service contracts and warranties.

 

Financial Results

 

Sales for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020 were $2,153,354, compared with $3,246,038 for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019. The decrease reflects the sale of 17 InMotion® robots for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020 compared to 33 InMotion® robots during the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019. In addition, deferred revenue, comprised of training to be provided and extended warranties, increased to $616,063 at March 31, 2020 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 fiscal year ended March 31, 2020 was $1,259,980 or 58.5%, compared to $1,615,872 or 49.8%, for the fiscal year ended in March 31, 2019. The high gross margin percentages reported for the fiscal year are due to efficiencies in the Company’s outsourced manufacturing of its InMotion® robots.

 

The Company reported a comprehensive loss for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020 of $(25,016,497), or a loss per share of $(5.61), compared with a comprehensive loss of $(10,556,601), or a loss per share of $(4.47), for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019. The higher loss is principally due to impairment losses from a write-off of goodwill of $11,222,291 and technology and other assets of $2,700,540.

 

BIONIK had cash and cash equivalents of $2,269,747 as of March 31, 2020, compared with $446,779 as of March 31, 2019. The Company’s working capital surplus was $626,923 as of March 31, 2020, compared a surplus of $479,408 as of March 31, 2019.
