Innovotech Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/21/12 -- Innovotech Inc. (TSX VENTURE:IOT) announced its unaudited financial and operational results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Highlights:


--  Strongest quarter in 2012 for contract research revenue. 
--  Advanced antimicrobial coating and wound dressing attracts industry
    leaders because of unique properties 
--  Overcame supply problems with InnovoSCEPT susceptibility tests and
    joined full scale efforts of marketing partner to introduce the new
    technology to the veterinary market

"The Company showed the strongest revenues of the year in contract research during the quarter" said Ken Boutilier, President of Innovotech. "We attribute this to our marketing efforts including the Biofilm Workshop held for the U.S. FDA and clients earlier this year."

"In addition, we have seen strong interest from medical device companies for our first antimicrobial coating from the AgreGuard family. Response to this unique product has been good, as rates of hospital-acquired infections are increasing and hospitals are seeking better antimicrobial products from medical device companies" says Boutilier.

Company has helped resolve previously disclosed problems with the manufacturing of InnovoSCEPT biofilm susceptibility tests and is working with its distribution partner to introduce the new technology to the veterinary market.

Revenues

In the three-month period ended September 30, 2012, total revenues were $342,031 (2011 - $393,970; 2010 - $425,051). This included contract research revenue of $285,834 (2011 - $327,614; 2010 - $395,332) and product sales of $56,197 (2011 - $66,356; 2010 - $29,719). Contract research revenue has improved over the course of the year but did not reach the Q3 2011 level. Low product sales were due to delays in manufacturing of InnovoSCEPT(TM) veterinary tests. In the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012, total revenues were $644,860 (2011 - $825,428; 2010 - $1,287,709).

General and Administrative Expense

In the three-month period ended September 30, 2012, general and administrative expense, including stock based compensation expense and allocated amortization expense, was $270,165 (2011 - $335,876). In the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012, general and administrative expenses were $816,862 (2011 - $890,200). The reduction of G&A expenses is a result of selective staff reduction measures taken during the year.

Research and Development

In the three-month period ended September 30, 2012, research and development expense was $264,037 (2011 - $253,415). The cost was partially offset by various grants of $129,056 (2011 - $118,374). In the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012, research and development expense was $817,731 (2011 - $760,674). Increased research and development costs are largely due to costs associated with the regulatory package being developed for Agress® for the EPA submission and development of improved manufacturing methods; and for costs incurred in the development of the AgreGuard family of products.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At September 30 2012, the Company had $242,633 in cash compared to $459,275 at December 31, 2011. Slower than anticipated recovery of contract research revenue combined with manufacturing delays of InnovoSCEPT(TM) veterinary tests have contributed to a decrease in cash reserves. The company has taken active measures to increase contract research and to accelerate product sales revenue.

About Innovotech Inc.

Innovotech Inc. is a pioneer in the field of biofilm product development, focused on providing innovative and practical solutions to medical, agricultural and industrial problems caused by microbial biofilms. Biofilms are organized communities of microorganisms that exist in virtually every natural environment and are responsible for a host of diseases in human health, animal health and agriculture. There are few products or regulatory standards, aside from those of Innovotech, designed specifically for biofilm-forming organisms.

Innovotech has a broad range of products that address the issue of biofilms within a number of different industries, including commercially available products in three market segments; the MBEC Assay(TM), bioFILM PA(TM), InnovoSCEPT-Human and InnovoSCEPT-Veterinary tests. The MBEC Assay(TM) is a high throughput biofilm growth device that was recently approved as an ASTM International standard. bioFILM PA(TM) and InnovoSCEPT-Human are the first diagnostic tests to assist physicians in the selection of the most effective antibiotic treatment for patients with biofilm-based chronic infections, while the InnovoSCEPT veterinary tests are designed to determine the most effective antibiotic treatment for chronic infections in both large and small animals.

Innovotech also has two products in advanced stages of development; Agress® is a unique, environmentally friendly seed treatment and plant spray designed to protect crops against both bacterial and fungal infections and AgreGuard(TM) is a unique antimicrobial for coating medical devices such as catheters.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
