Recent Corporate Highlights
- On July 21, 2020, Profound closed an underwritten offering of common shares, including the full exercise of the over-allotment option, resulting in the issuance of 3,172,414 common shares at a price of US$14.50, for gross proceeds of approximately US$46 million.
- As of the end of October 2020, there were six TULSA centers in the United States recruiting patients, an increase from two at the end of Q2-2020.
“The continued execution of our growth plan resulted in a more than four-fold increase in revenue in Q3-2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019,” said Arun Menawat, Profound’s CEO and Chairman. “The recent financing sufficiently strengthened our balance sheet to enable us to make important decisions about strategically and responsibly supporting revenue growth by bolstering our management team, field force, clinical development programs and manufacturing capacity. We look forward to updating investors as we progress.”
Summary Third Quarter 2020 Results
All amounts, unless specified otherwise, are expressed in Canadian dollars and are presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board, applicable to the preparation of interim financial statements, including IAS 34, Interim Financial Reporting.
For the third quarter ended September 30, 2020, the Company recorded revenue of $2,980,710 with $2,464,563 from the sale of product, $134,500 from pay per procedure and $381,647 attributable to service revenue. Third quarter 2020 revenue increased approximately 337% from $682,224 in the same three-month period a year ago.
The Company recorded a net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2020 of $8,136,294, or $0.43 per common share, compared to a net loss of $6,269,904 or $0.57 per common share, for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The increase in net loss was primarily attributed to an increase in research and development (“R&D”) expenses of $1,325,088, an increase in general and administrative (“G&A”) expenses of $427,182, an increase in selling and distribution expenses of $706,695 and an increase in net financing costs of $879,005. This was offset by an increase in gross profits of $1,674,852.
Expenditures for R&D for the three months ended September 30, 2020 were $4,749,673, compared to $3,424,585 for the three months ended September 30, 2019. Materials, share based compensation, salaries and benefits and tax credits increased by $1,248,985, $183,215, $209,865, and $47,772, respectively. These increases were due to higher spending on materials and R&D projects for technology improvements and upgrades, options awarded to employees, increased R&D personnel and ineligibility of Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SRED) cash tax credits from the government of Canada. Offsetting these amounts were decreases in consulting fees and travel of $347,658 and $24,345, respectively. These decreases were due to lower spending on consultants as additional employees were hired to replace consultants and lower travel costs due to COVID-19 restrictions.
G&A expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2020 increased by $427,182 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2019. Salaries and benefits, share based compensation, insurance and software expenses increased by $52,740, $236,986, $406,633 and $113,165, respectively, due to increases in salaries, options awarded to employees, insurance costs associated with being Nasdaq listed and software costs due to COVID-19 and annual subscriptions. Offsetting these amounts were decreased consulting fees of $340,205 and travel costs of $26,873, which were due to one-time Nasdaq listing fees incurred in 2019 and COVID-19 travel restrictions. Depreciation expenses decreased by $17,977 due to certain assets being fully depreciated.
Liquidity and Outstanding Share Capital
As at September 30, 2020, the Company had cash of $110,402,232.
As at November 5, 2020, Profound had an unlimited number of authorized common shares with 19,625,954 common shares issued and outstanding.
