Neovasc : Announces Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results (Form 6-K)

Neovasc Announces Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

VANCOUVER and MINNEAPOLIS -Neovasc, Inc. ('Neovasc' or the 'Company') (NASDAQ, TSX: NVCN), today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Second Quarter Highlights

●Generated revenue of approximately $633,000 in the quarter, up 123% from the same period in 2020, and a sequential 40% increase from Q1 2021.

●Streamlined strategic focus to pursue three value-creation strategies around Reducer and Tiara TA, suspending Tiara TF activity and reducing headcount by 40%. These moves are expected to extend the Company's cash runway into 2024.

●Continued to execute a strategic focus of additional reimbursement agreements, announcing in June that Reducer had been granted the first national reimbursement from the National Health Service England.

●Continued to pursue clinical studies supporting Reducer:

  • Advanced preparations for COSIRA II, the pivotal US trial for Reducer. The Company expects to file an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) Supplement with the FDA in the third quarter.
  • Announced the first enrollment in the COSIMA trial in Germany, studying Reducer as a treatment for microvascular angina.

'Neovasc enjoyed a strong second quarter and continued to make good progress on its value creation strategies. During the quarter we made a strategic decision to streamline our focus on three value creation strategies, coupled with a significant corporate headcount reduction, which is expected to extend our cash runway for three years. We followed up on these moves in July, adding a new VP of Clinical Affairs and a VP of Regulatory Affairs, Global Angina Therapies to strengthen our expertise in these important areas. We are placing a heavy emphasis on expanding the market penetration of our CE-marked Reducer device in Europe, working directly with hospitals, cardiologists, and medical associations to raise awareness of the Reducer's safety, efficacy, and ease of use,' said Fred Colen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Neovasc. Mr. Colen continued, 'Our team is also working diligently to expand reimbursement for the Reducer device. Those efforts were rewarded when Reducer was granted full reimbursement by the National Health Service (NHS) England, and we look forward to sharing news of more reimbursement decisions in the second half of the year. In the United States, we continue to prepare for our pivotal U.S. trial for Reducer and expect to file an IDE Supplement in the third quarter. With respect to Tiara, we are working with our notified body in Europe to understand all specific requirements and leverage of work already performed, to pursue a CE mark decision for the Tiara TA device under MDR. There is much more work to do, but we are confident that we now have the team in place and the financial security to successfully execute on our value creation strategies.'

Financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021

Revenues increased 123% to approximately $633,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, compared to revenues of approximately $284,000 for the same period in 2020.

The cost of goods sold for the three months ended June 30, 2021, was approximately $109,000, compared to $75,000 for the same period in 2020. The overall gross margin for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, was 83%, compared to 74% gross margin for the same period in 2020.

Total expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, were $9.6 million compared to $8.9 million for the same period in 2020, representing an increase of approximately $748,000 or 8%. The increase in total expenses can be substantially explained by the following non-cash charges; a $1.0 million increase in non-cash share-based payments and an approximate $903,000 charge related to the decision to pause the development of the Tiara TF device ($594,000 impairment charge due to fixed assets obsolescence, and $309,000 charge for employee termination expenses). This increase in non-cash charges was offset by a $1.1 million decrease in cash-based employee expenses due to the Company's reductions in force in December 2020 and June 2021.

Operating losses and comprehensive losses for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, were $9.1 million and $9.3 million, respectively, or $0.13 basic and diluted loss per share, as compared with $8.7 million operating losses and $12.2 million comprehensive losses, or $0.81 basic and diluted loss per share, for the same period in 2020.
