ENDRA Life Sciences Reports Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results and Provides Business Update

Conference call begins at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time today

ANN ARBOR, MI / ACCESSWIRE / August 12, 2021 / ENDRA Life Sciences Inc. (“ENDRA”) (NASDAQ:NDRA), a pioneer of Thermo Acoustic Enhanced UltraSound (TAEUS®), today reported financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and provided a business update. Highlights of the second quarter of 2021 and recent weeks include the following:

  • Continued to screen patients at Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine (“RVUCOM”).In addition, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (“UPMC”) is scheduled to commence scanning patients in the near term as it completes its pandemic-related backlog of MRI procedures. All clinical evaluation sites will compare liver fat measurements from the TAEUS system with the gold standard, MRI-PDFF. RVUCOM’s study is targeting a total of 200 patients and UPMC is targeting 75 patients.
  • Initiated in-person sales activities for the TAEUS system in Europe. Four salespeople are driving TAEUS’ marketing and sales efforts in Europe targeting ENDRA’s database of prospective customers.
  • Strengthened TAEUS intellectual property protection with issuance of additional U.S. patents. In July, ENDRA announced the issuance of three additional U.S. patents. Another U.S. patent was recently issued that further protects the company’s TAEUS technology and increases the year-to-date total to eight issued patents. ENDRA’s intellectual property portfolio continues to grow and currently stands at 87 global assets, defined as patents in preparation, filed or issued.
  • Appointed Irina Pestrikova as Senior Director of Finance. Ms. Pestrikova has supported ENDRA since 2014 and has been actively involved in ENDRA’s financial planning and analysis, accounting and SEC reporting. Ms. Pestrikova is assuming all day-to-day responsibilities previously performed by ENDRA’s former Chief Financial Officer, David Wells.

“ENDRA is well-capitalized and we are putting in place the building blocks for the global success of our Thermo Acoustic Enhanced UltraSound technology. Although certain elements are out of our control, including regulatory processes and the COVID-19 pandemic, we are focused on advancing our commercial plans for TAEUS in Europe and supporting our clinical evaluation sites worldwide, as well as remaining highly responsive to the FDA regarding our 510(k) submission. We continue to engage in regular, constructive dialogues with the FDA and remain optimistic that we will receive clearance in 2021,” stated Francois Michelon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ENDRA. “However, given that TAEUS represents an advancement in medical ultrasound technology this process may continue to take longer than expected. As part of our activities to drive awareness of TAEUS, in June ENDRA participated in the annual EASL International Liver Congress, which was attended by approximately 7,500 clinicians, researchers and others in gastro-hepatology, endocrinology and related specialties. We look forward to resuming these trade shows in person as we plan to exhibit the TAEUS system at several more industry conferences later this year.”

“We are pleased with Rocky Vista’s continued progress scanning patients with our TAEUS system to generate real-world data and bolster evidence of clinical utility. As our other domestic and overseas partners return to delivering pre-pandemic levels of healthcare service, we look forward to additional clinical evaluation facilities initiating scans, with UPMC scheduled to come online next,” commented Renaud Maloberti, ENDRA’s Chief Commercial Officer. “In Europe, we made further progress with our four direct salespeople now driving TAEUS’ marketing and sales efforts, and we affirm expectations for our first commercial sales during 2021. As COVID-19 restrictions ease somewhat throughout Europe, we were pleased to have started in-person sales meetings targeting potential customers in our database. These commercialization efforts are augmented through support from our partner GE Healthcare, with their substantial base of ultrasound clients also being prospective TAEUS customers.”

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

  • Operating expenses increased to $3.2 million in the second quarter of 2021 from $2.9 million in the same period in 2020. The increase was primarily due to increased spending for commercialization of TAEUS and ongoing product development.
  • Net loss in the second quarter of 2021 was $3.2 million, or $0.08 per share, compared with a net loss of $2.9 million, or $0.20 per share, in the second quarter of 2020.
  • Cash and cash equivalents were $14.0 million as of June 30, 2021.

About ENDRA Life Sciences Inc.

ENDRA Life Sciences is the pioneer of Thermo Acoustic Enhanced UltraSound (TAEUS®), a ground-breaking technology being developed to visualize tissue like MRI, but at 1/50th the cost and at the point of patient care. TAEUS® is designed to work in concert with 400,000 cart-based ultrasound systems in use globally today. TAEUS® is initially focused on the measurement of fat in the liver as a means to assess and monitor Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH), chronic liver conditions that affect over one billion people globally, and for which there are no practical diagnostic tools. Beyond the liver, ENDRA is exploring several other clinical applications of TAEUS®, including visualization of tissue temperature during energy-based surgical procedures.
