IMAGIN MEDICAL REPORTS FISCAL 2019 SECOND QUARTER RESULTS
Imagin Medical Inc. has released its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2019. All amounts are presented in accordance with international financial reporting standards (IFRS).
Recent corporate developments:
- Imagin completed the proof-of-concept phase of the redesigned i/Blue imaging system's control unit and subsequently reached the first step of another major product development milestone with the completion of assembly of the system's functional unit.
The company met with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to discuss the i/Blue imaging system's regulatory path and the potential need for a clinical study. Imagin will use the FDA's feedback to help refine its regulatory strategy and expects that discussions with the FDA will be continuing.
Imagin welcomed world-renowned bladder cancer expert Dr. Ashish M. Kamat to its scientific board of advisers.
Following the typical product development path for a new medical technology, Imagin is working to move the i/Blue imaging system through various progressive stages: original design, proof-of-principle prototype, functional system, pilot production, product validation and, finally, realized product for commercialization.
"This quarter, Imagin completed the first step of the functional system stage, with both components of the functional unit operating as anticipated to provide simultaneous high-resolution images in both blue- and white-light modes," said Jim Hutchens, Imagin's president and chief executive officer. "In addition, data from the previous research study conducted at the University of Rochester Medical Center was used to refine and optimize the technology for performance, size and cost, resulting in a current functional unit that is 70 per cent smaller than the proof-of-principle prototype. As we continued to progress through the functional system stage, we conducted focus groups at the American Urological Association's annual meeting last month. We are now using the valuable feedback we gathered to advance the functional system phase toward pilot production later this year."
Summary fiscal 2019 second quarter financial results
Total operating expenses for the second quarter of fiscal 2019 were $926,070, compared with $2,718,811 for the same quarter in 2018, and consisted primarily of research and development (R&D) and general and administrative (G&A) expenses. R&D expenses for the second quarter of fiscal 2019 were $439,404, compared with $173,610 in the same quarter in 2018. The increase in R&D was primarily attributable to development, design, engineering and regulatory expenses. G&A expenses for the second quarter of fiscal 2019 were $420,505, compared with $1,889,760 for the same quarter in 2018. The change in G&A expenses was primarily attributable to the decrease in stock-based compensation.
Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2019, was $926,070, or one cent per common share, compared with a net loss of $2,718,811, or three cents per common share, for the three months ended March 31, 2018.
