·Completed the sale of three InMotion™ Arm therapy robots including the recently released InMotion™ Arm/Hand system to Bionik (China) Medical Technology Co.  Ltd. as part of the progressive implementation of our joint venture which we entered into in 2017 and sold five InMotion™ robots to U.S. customers

 

Management Commentary

 

Commenting on the quarter, Dr. Eric Dusseux, M.D., BIONIK’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “"I am very pleased with the excellent progress we made in the U.S. with our next-generation system offering enhanced functionality to support clinical rehabilitation of stroke survivors and those with mobility impairments due to neurological conditions. During last year’s second fiscal quarter we shipped three InMotion™ Arm therapy robots to our 2017 joint venture, BIONIK (China) Medical Technology Co., Ltd., and we matched it this quarter by also shipping it three InMotion™ Arm/Hand therapy robots. 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. Beyond the clinical InMotion™ line of products, through our development program, we also look forward to penetrating the at-home markets in the U.S. and abroad in the future.”

 

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

 

·Continue to expand sales channels in North America and abroad.

·Further develop InMotion™ robotic products to serve clinical rehabilitation providers and to provide home-based solutions for extended rehabilitation therapy and mobility enhancement.

·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 service contracts and warranties.

 

Financial Results

 

Sales for quarter ended June 30, 2019 were $790,379, compared with $501,333 for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The increase reflects the sale of eight InMotion™ last generation commercial robots during the quarter. In addition, deferred revenue, comprised of training to be provided and extended warranties, increased to $525,794 at June 30, 2019 from $467,778 at March 31, 2019, a 12.4% increase, and from $129,784 at June 30, 2018, a 305.1% increase. The Company believes that extended warranties and training are important and growing parts of its business.

 

 

 

 

Gross margin for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was $454,294 or 57.5%, compared to $248,170 or 49.5% for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The higher gross margin has been achieved due to higher average selling prices for the period and the economies of scale deriving from higher volume manufacturing of our robots.

 

The Company reported a comprehensive loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 of $(2,120,644), or a loss per share of $(0.55), compared with a comprehensive loss of $(760,698), or a loss per share of $(0.44), for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The higher loss is principally due to a gain on mark to market re-evaluation recorded in the quarter ended June 30, 2018 which decreased the loss in 2018 by $2,048,697.

 

BIONIK had cash and cash equivalents of $530,031 as of June 30, 2019, compared with $446,779 as of March 31, 2019. The Company’s working capital deficit at June 30, 2019 was $802,997 compared to a working capital surplus of $479,408 as of March 31, 2019. The working capital deficit at June 30, 2019 is due to convertible loans received by the Company during the quarter being recorded as current liabilities rather than in equity when the loans are converted.
