TORONTO and BOSTON, Aug. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Bionik Laboratories Corp. (OTCQB:BNKL) ("Bionik" or the "Company"), a robotics company focused on providing rehabilitation and assistive technology solutions to individuals with neurological and mobility challenges from hospital to home, today announced financial results for first quarter of fiscal year 2019, ended June 30, 2018.

Corporate highlights for the quarter and recent weeks include:

  • Appointed a new Chief Commercial Officer, Renaud Maloberti
  • Continued success of our leasing program supported by our financial partner representing 80% of our quarter sales in volume
  • Continued development of a lower-limb assistive exoskeleton for individuals with impaired mobility through a previously announced partnership with Wistron Corporation
  • Continued development of an InMotion Home product, which is based on the same clinical concepts and rehabilitation protocols as the professional products and is supported by significant clinical data

Financial highlights for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 and recent weeks include:

  • Reported sales of $501,333, up substantially from $87,520 in the prior-year quarter
  • Sold five InMotion robots, compared with one in the prior-year quarter and 11 in fiscal 2018
  • Borrowings from existing shareholders during the quarter of $2,934,298. Subsequent to June 30, 2018, as of July 20, 2018, these loans and an additional $1,798,555 of loans and interest were converted into common shares

Management Commentary

Commenting on the quarter, Eric Dusseux, M.D., Bionik's chief executive officer, said, "The fiscal first quarter was marked by a number of achievements that are expected to support our future growth. Past investments in research and development were realized with the launch of our next-generation InMotion Arm.  This new interactive robotic system for the rehabilitation of stroke survivors and those with mobility impairment due to neurological conditions provides a commercial product with the same innovative, active-assisted robotic therapy that has been clinically proven with the previous generation, along with a modern design that is smaller, sleeker and intended for use with a large number of patients.

"The financial results we are reporting today reflect the beginning of these sales to rehabilitation facilities.  We are optimistic that this next-generation product will be embraced by the prestigious institutions we have targeted, and will strengthen the commercial pipeline we have built over the past year. We are encouraged by the market's reception to our next-generation system and have already placed the first units at major customer hospitals. We believe these sales validate our new industrial and commercial strategy.

"We also strengthened our management team and corporate governance.  The appointment of our new Chief Commercial Officer Renaud Maloberti in June bodes well for the execution of our sales strategy.

"The agreement with manufacturing partner Cogmedix has increased our production capacity. At the same time, we are gaining momentum with the key partnerships and joint ventures formed over the past year, and have made significant progress in developing our product offerings to focus on high-growth consumer opportunities," Dr. Dusseux added.

Bionik expects to achieve the following milestones during fiscal year 2019:

  • Launch the next generation of InMotion Hand and InMotion Wrist to rehabilitation centers and hospitals
  • Expand sales channels in North America and abroad
  • Further develop InMotion robotic products for in-home use
  • Continue development with partner Wistron Corporation of the Company's first lower-cost, lower-limb assistive exoskeleton for the large and growing elderly population both in North America and abroad
  • Work on maturing the outsourcing of all commercial manufacturing to support the expected increase in product demand
  • Increase sales of service contracts and warranties
  • Work toward an uplist of Bionik's common stock to an U.S. national securities exchange

First Quarter Financial Results

Sales for quarter ended June 30, 2018 were $501,333, compared with $87,520 for the quarter ended June 30, 2017. The increase reflects the sale of five InMotion robots during the first quarter of fiscal 2019, compared with one robot in the prior-year quarter.  In addition, deferred revenue, comprised of training to be provided and extended warranties, increased to $129,784 at June 30, 2018 from $122,667 at March 31, 2018. Extended warranties and training are important and growing parts of the Company's business.

Gross profit for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 was $248,170 or 50% of sales, compared with $58,220 or 67% of sales for the quarter ended June 30, 2017. The prior-year sales consisted of one unit and the decreased margin in 2018 is due to higher material prices and issues related to outsourcing which the Company's engineering team is working on mitigating.

The Company reported a comprehensive loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 of ($760,698), or a loss per share of ($0.00), compared with a comprehensive loss of ($2,240,518), or a loss per share of $(0.02), for the quarter ended June 30, 2017. The lower loss is principally due to a $2,048,697 mark to market revaluation gain connected to reversing the fair value entry that valued all of the Company's unissued but committed share, warrants and options at March 31, 2018.

Bionik had cash and cash equivalents of $959,704 as of June 30, 2018, compared with $507,311 as of March 31, 2018. The Company's working capital deficit was ($3,152,267) as of June 30, 2018, compared with a deficit of ($6,711,941) as of March 31, 2018. The decrease in the working capital deficit was due to a requirement at March 31, 2018 that shares to be issued, options and warrants had to be recorded at fair value, which totalled $5,692,853 as of March 31, 2018, which was reversed in the quarter. Subsequent to June 30, 2018, on July 20, 2018 all convertible loans and interest received between April 1, 2018 and July 20, 2018 were converted into common shares.
