ANN ARBOR, MI / ACCESSWIRE / May 14, 2020 / ENDRA Life Sciences Inc. ("ENDRA") (NASDAQ:NDRA), the pioneer of Thermo Acoustic Enhanced UltraSound (TAEUS™), today provided a business update and reported first quarter 2020 financial results.

"I could not be more pleased with the progress we've made during these challenging times to keep the company on track to receive critical regulatory approvals and advance commercialization activities on schedule in Europe and the United States," said Francois Michelon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The receipt of the CE Mark for our TAEUS liver system ahead of schedule in the first quarter positions the company to be one of the first to start positively impacting the lives of more than one billion people globally affected by Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH), where there is an acute need for a practical tool to assess and monitor liver fat before it progresses to fibrosis, cirrhosis and cancer."

Q1 2020 and Recent Business Highlights

  • Received CE Mark Approval for TAEUS FLIP (Fatty Liver Imaging Probe) System targeting NAFLD and NASH.
  • Renewed collaboration agreement with the GE Healthcare unit of General Electric Company, extending the agreement's term to January 2021.
  • Increased intellectual property portfolio to 68 assets defined, filed, issued and licensed patents and pending patent applications, including a key patent to expand into a future clinical market - monitoring tissue temperature during thermal ablation and cryotherapy procedures, for which there are also currently no practical clinical tools.
  • Expanded Scientific Advisory Board with the addition of Raza Malik, M.D., Director of Hepatology and Associate Chief of the Division of Gastroenterology at Tufts Medical Center in Boston.
  • Remain on track for key milestones to establish clinical evaluation reference sites and initiate sales in Europe in the second half of 2020, as well as to submit a 510(k) regulatory package to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the second quarter of 2020.

Financial Results for Q1, 2020

  • Operating expenses increased to $3.1 million in the first quarter of 2020, up from $2.7 million in the first quarter of 2019. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to employment related costs including non-cash expenses for stock compensation, costs associated with being a publicly traded company including investor relations, and increased costs for insurance.
  • Net loss in Q1 2020 totaled $3.3 million, or ($0.29) per basic and diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $2.7 million, or ($0.37) per basic and diluted share in Q1 2019.
  • Cash at March 31, 2020 totaled $3.1 million, as compared to $6.2 million at December 31, 2019, with no long-term debt outstanding.

About ENDRA Life Sciences Inc.
ENDRA Life Sciences Inc. is the pioneer of Thermo Acoustic Enhanced UltraSound (TAEUS™), a ground-breaking technology that mirrors some applications similar to CT or MRI, but at 50X lower cost, at the point of patient care. TAEUS is designed to work in concert with one million ultrasound systems in global use today. TAEUS is initially focused on the measurement of fat in the liver, as a means to assess and monitor NAFLD and NASH, chronic liver conditions that affect over 1 billion people globally, and for which there are no practical diagnostic tools. Beyond the liver, ENDRA is exploring several other clinical applications of TAEUS, including visualization of tissue temperature during energy-based surgical procedures.www.endrainc.com
