Loughborough, England, June 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nemaura Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: NMRD) (“Nemaura” or the “Company”), a medical technology company focused on developing and commercializing a daily disposable, wearable glucose sensor and supporting personalized lifestyle coaching programs, today provides a business update and releases its financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2022.

Corporate Highlights for FY2022:

  • Commenced shipments of sugarBEAT® continuous glucose monitor (CGM) devices to its UK licensee, MySugarWatch Limited (“MSWL”), previously DB Ethitronix Limited. MSWL commenced mass educational and awareness campaigns to physicians in the UK via a leading professional publication and direct to consumer via national papers with daily circulation exceeding 1.2 million
  • Recognized $503,906 in revenue for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2022
  • Signed a global commercial contract with MySugarWatch DuoPack Limited. Under terms of the deal, the Nemaura’s CGMs and sensors will be provided as Duo-Packs with prescription-only medicines that are widely prescribed for people with Type 2 diabetes. The initial Duo-Pack presentation will be launched as the first of these medicines loses its patent protection in the UK in the calendar fourth quarter of 2022. Over 2 million prescriptions are written for these medicines in the top 3 EU countries (by GDP) alone, representing a significant opportunity
  • Launched beta trials of a metabolic health program using a body-worn glucose sensor along with an AI mobile application, intended for employers and insurers as well as direct to consumer, as a form of wellness and preventative medicine platform
  • Tiger Partners Trading LLC, an investment advisor to Julian Robertson’s Tiger Management family office, acquired a 3.1% equity stake in the Company in February 2022
  • Appointed Dr. Arash Ghadar as Chief Operating Officer. Dr. Ghadar has taken the lead in supporting the commercial supply of product to our current and future licensees and global distributors
  • Completed two FDA audits in relation to the Company’s previous PMA submission and is continuing the dialogue with the FDA in relation to the PMA submission

“On the heels of successfully commercializing sugarBEAT® in fiscal 2022 and recognizing our first revenue from our UK licensee MySugarWatch Limited, our primary goal in fiscal 2023 is to expand our revenue by supporting the launch effort of MySugarWatch Limited in the UK. We expect additional purchase orders to support the UK launch, as well as the anticipated Duo-Pack launch later in calendar 2022. MySugarWatch Limited has already begun mass advertising through education and awareness campaigns to healthcare professionals and direct to consumers through the national press,” commented Dr. Faz Chowdhury, CEO of Nemaura.

“Furthermore, we are exploring additional new channels in other territories with our technology platform. We have also started to engage with large scale manufacturers to enable us to meet the strong worldwide diabetic monitoring demand, and any appreciable scale we can build in our business should be meaningful to shareholder value. We look forward to updating investors with additional corporate highlights as they unfold,” concluded Dr. Chowdhury.

FY2022 Financial Summary:

  • The fiscal year ended March 31, 2022 marked a pivotal milestone for the Company, as it commenced deliveries of sugarBEAT® to MSWL pursuant to the initial order placed in April 2021
  • Research and development expenses were consistent with the prior year at approximately $1.5 million. The Company’s historically more significant research and development expenses relating to clinical trials and improvements made to the sugarBEAT® device began to flatten out over the 2022 fiscal year
  • General and administrative expenses were $6,173,049 and $3,032,138 for the fiscal years ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. These expenses consisted of fees for legal, professional, consultancy, audit services, investor relations, insurance, advertising, and general and operational wages. The year-over-year increase in expenses were driven predominantly by increased wages, as the Company has increased headcount to support the operational scale-up process across both its UK and U.S. teams
