BIONIK Laboratories Reports Fiscal 2022 Q1 Financial Results

 

Revenues Increase 160% Over Same Period in Prior Year

 

$5M Capital Raise to Convert at $9.50/Share Showing Confidence in Bionik

 

TORONTO & BOSTON - BIONIK Laboratories Corp. (OTCQB:BNKL), a robotics company focused on providing rehabilitation and assistive technology solutions to individuals with neurological and mobility challenges from hospital to home, today reported financial results for its first quarter of fiscal year 2022, for the period ended June 30, 2021.

 

“The growing revenue trend that we had in the last quarter of fiscal 2021 continues into the first quarter of fiscal 2022. Our commercial pipeline continues to grow and we are seeing continued traction in our distribution channels. This growth is driven by our InMotion® robot sales in the U.S. as well as our InMotion Connect® digital solutions sales from one of our strategic partners,” said Rich Russo, Chief Financial Officer and Interim Chief Executive Officer. “With our recent announcement of our $5 million capital raise financing, coupled with our 160% increase in revenues over the same period in the prior year, BIONIK is well poised to move the ball forward with its strategic initiatives and execute on its operating plan.”

 

First Quarter and Recent Corporate Highlights:

 

     Five units were shipped during the quarter contributing to 160% growth from the prior year’s quarter revenues

 

     The Small Business Administration (“SBA”) has allowed for forgiveness of the Company’s PPP Loan and interest of $0.5 million in May 2021

 

     BIONIK continues to advance its machine learning predictive model with its partnership with Bitstrapped and is also connecting with other partners to enhance some of the technical areas of the prototype

 

     On a GAAP basis, our operating expenses decreased $0.8 million or 38%, due primarily to the reduction of our head count as well as decreased professional fees within our general and administrative expenses

 

     BIONIK recently consolidated its existing debt of $3.2M and closed on a $5M capital raise, all of which will convert to common stock on March 31, 2022 at a price of $9.50, showing the confidence of our new and existing investor base

 

First Quarter Financial Results:

 

First quarter total revenues increased 160% to $0.7 million, compared with $0.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, driven by an increase in the units sold in the first quarter ended June 30, 2021 as compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

 

First quarter gross profit increased to $0.5 million, compared to $0.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The increase is due to the increased number of units sold from the quarter ended June 30, 2021 as compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The overall gross margin was up from 75.7% for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 to 80.6% for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 as certain of our demonstration inventory was sold during the first quarter of fiscal 2022, which generally carry higher margins on revenues.

 

 

 

 

Total operating expenses were $1.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2022 compared to $2.2 million in the prior year first quarter, a decrease of $0.8 million, or 38%. This decrease was primarily driven by reduced headcount and reduced research and development programs coupled with reduced professional fees and services in general and administrative expenses.

 

BIONIK recorded a net loss of $0.5 million, or ($0.08) per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2.0 million, or ($0.39) per diluted share, in the same period for fiscal 2021. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the extinguishment of the PPP loan, share-based compensation expense, non-cash unrealized foreign exchange measurement gains and losses and the amortization of intangibles, first quarter net loss was $0.8 million, or a loss of ($0.14) per diluted share, compared with a loss of $1.6 million, or a loss of ($0.31) per diluted share, in the same period for fiscal 2021.

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, BIONIK uses non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP diluted net loss per share. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release exclude costs associated with the amortization of intangible assets acquired, share-based compensation expense, extinguishment of existing debt, as well as unrealized foreign exchange gains or losses for the three months and year ended June 30, 2021 and 2020. This exclusion may be different from, and therefore not comparable to, similar measures used by other companies.

 

BIONIK’s management believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance by excluding amortization, impairment and foreign exchange costs that may not be indicative of our core business operating results. BIONIK believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to the non-GAAP financial measures in assessing BIONIK’s performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. BIONIK also believes that the non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in our financial and operational decision making. The non-GAAP Financial measures also facilitate management’s internal comparisons to BIONIK’s historical performance and our competitors’ operating results.
