Financial highlights for the second quarter of fiscal 2019 and recent weeks include:
|·||Reported sales of $547,085, up 147% over $221,847 in the prior-year quarter|
|·||Sold seven InMotion robots, compared with two in the prior-year quarter and five in the first quarter of fiscal 2019|

|·||Effected a 1-for-150 reverse stock split on October 29, 2018 as part of planned application to uplist on the Nasdaq exchange|
Commenting on the quarter, Eric Dusseux, M.D., BIONIK’s chief executive officer, said, “Our sales momentum continued during the fiscal second quarter and recent weeks, and I am very pleased with the excellent progress we made towards achieving multiple milestones. We sold seven InMotion systems during the quarter, compared with five in the first quarter and two in the same quarterly period a year ago. These results clearly reflect our renewed sales efforts on all fronts, from R&D to manufacturing and financing.
“We have now launched the next-generation InMotion ARM in Europe following receipt of the CE mark. As we recently announced, the first sale of this product was to a facility in France, which occurred during our fiscal second quarter. We expect continued sales of this new interactive robotic system for the rehabilitation of stroke survivors outside the US. The new InMotion ARM provides those with mobility impairment due to neurological conditions a commercial product with the same innovative, active-assisted robotic therapy that has been clinically proven with the previous generation. The new version offers a modern design that is smaller, sleeker and intended for use with a large number of patients.
Dr. Dusseux continued, “We shipped three InMotion ARM therapy robots to our 2017 joint venture, BIONIK (China) Medical Technology Co., Ltd., which was formed through an agreement between Bionik and Ginger Capital Investment Holding Ltd. The robots will be used for testing to support State Drug Administration approval in China. We are very excited by this progress and hope that we will be able to address rehabilitation for the 2.4 million new stroke patients each year in China.
"Our sales efforts are supported by advancements with manufacturing partner Cogmedix leading to increased production capacity. This excellent outsourced manufacturing facility is permitting us to fill customer orders more quickly.”
Dr. Dusseux concluded, “During the quarter and recent weeks we took important steps to improve our capital structure and secure long-term growth capital. We effected a consolidation of shares with the goal of meeting the minimum bid requirement for listing on the Nasdaq exchange. We also raised funds to continue to develop our innovative products and support the manufacture of our robotic systems. We look forward to completing these initiatives and broadening awareness for BIONIK among the investment community, while providing important solutions for patients with impaired mobility due to neurological conditions.”
BIONIK continues to expect to achieve the following milestones during the second half of fiscal year 2019:
|·||Launch the next generation of InMotion ARM/HAND™ Interactive Therapy System and InMotion WRIST™ to rehabilitation centers and hospitals|
|·||Continue to expand sales channels in North America and abroad|
|·||Further develop InMotion robotic products for in-home use|
|·||Continue development of the Company’s first lower-cost, lower-limb assistive exoskeleton for the large and growing elderly population, both in North America and abroad|
|·||Enhance the effectiveness of all commercial outsourced manufacturing to support the expected increase in product demand and introduction of new products|
|·||Increase sales of service contracts and warranties|
|·||Make substantial progress towards the desired uplisting of BIONIK’s common stock on the Nasdaq exchange|
Second Quarter Financial Results
Sales for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 were $547,085, compared with $221,847 for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. The increase reflects the sale of seven InMotion robots during the second quarter of fiscal 2019, compared with two robots in the prior-year quarter. In addition, deferred revenue, comprised of training to be provided and extended warranties, increased to $134,161 at September 30, 2018 from $122,667 at March 31, 2018. Extended warranties and training are important and growing parts of the Company’s business.
Gross profit for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 was $163,012 or 30% of sales, compared with $162,022, or 73% of sales for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. The decline in gross margin compared to the prior period was negatively impacted by higher than normal manufacturing costs as the Company transitioned its production to an outsourcing arrangement. The gross margin this quarter also reflected the shipment of three units to our China JV distribution partner. The prior year’s cost of goods sold also included only direct material costs.
The Company reported a comprehensive loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 of $(3,983,105), or a loss per share of $(1.62), compared with a comprehensive loss of $(3,615,361), or a loss per share of $(5.33), for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. The higher loss is principally due to other expenses of $1,582,997 mostly related to a $1,970,167 non-cash accretion expense connected to the promissory notes that were converted as of July 20, 2018.
BIONIK had cash and cash equivalents of $305,757 as of September 30, 2018, compared with $507,311 as of March 31, 2018. The Company’s working capital deficit was $(116,551) as of September 30, 2018, compared with a deficit of $(6,711,941) as of March 31, 2018. The working capital deficit at March 31, 2018 was related to the reclassification of unissued shares, options and warrants at fair value due to insufficient number of authorized shares totalling $5,692,853. The decrease in working capital is due to the reversal of this liability subsequent to March 31, 2018. In addition, all convertible loans and interest received between April 1, 2018 and July 20, 2018 were converted into common shares as of July 20, 2018.
