ANN ARBOR, MI / ACCESSWIRE / August 17, 2020 / ENDRA Life Sciences Inc. ("ENDRA") (NASDAQ:NDRA), the pioneer of Thermo Acoustic Enhanced UltraSound (TAEUS®), today provided a business update and reported second quarter 2020 financial results.

"During the second quarter, we achieved another major milestone on the path to commercializing TAEUS with our 510(k) Premarket Notification submission to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA")," said Francois Michelon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The submission represents the culmination of years of scientific research, quality system implementation, clinical data collection, and biocompatibility and safety testing. I'm very proud of the ENDRA team, especially for working tirelessly through an unprecedented global pandemic to ensure the submission was made on the aggressive schedule we set before COVID-19 was a consideration."

As Renaud Maloberti, Chief Commercial Officer, explained, "The FDA submission builds on the receipt of the CE Mark in Europe for our TAEUS liver system in the first quarter and positions the company to begin commercialization in two major markets in the second half of 2020 to start positively impacting the lives of more than 1 billion people globally affected by Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH)."

Q2 2020 and Recent Business Highlights

  • Completed 510(k) Premarket Notification submission to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") for TAEUS Fatty Liver Imaging Probe ("FLIP") on schedule, setting stage for potential clearance and commercialization in the U.S. in 2020.
  • Secured new partnership with the Medical College of Wisconsin ("MCW"), a world-renowned healthcare institution, for a clinical study of ENDRA's Thermo-Acoustic Enhanced Ultrasound (TAEUS™) device for assessing Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease ("NAFLD"). This represents the third research partnership for ENDRA, which will help bolster the clinical evidence and further establish the clinical utility of the TAEUS device in patients with NAFLD, as commercialization gets underway.
  • Advanced European commercialization strategy, following CE Mark approval, including advancing to final stages of establishing initial evaluation sites in key markets, as well as hiring an initial salesperson in the U.K. and identifying leading candidates in other key markets.
  • Increased intellectual property (IP) portfolio to 72 assets defined, filed and issued, including key platform patents in the United States, Europe and China to defend our technology and current and future clinical applications for which there are currently no practical clinical tools.
  • Remain on track with key milestones of establishing clinical evaluation reference sites in Q3 and initial sales in Europe in Q4 2020.

Financial Results for Quarter Ended March 31, 2020

  • Operating expenses increased to $2.9 million in the second quarter of 2020, up from $2.3 million in the same period in 2019. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to expenses related to the development of our TAEUS product line, and costs associated with the pre-commercialization of TAEUS.
  • Net loss in Q2 2020 totaled $2.9 million, or ($0.20) per basic and diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $2.3 million, or ($0.31) per basic and diluted share in Q2 2019.
  • Cash balance at June 30, 2020 was $749,000 and totaled approximately $2.4 million as of August 14, 2020 due primarily to voluntary early warrant conversions, compared to $6.2 million at December 31, 2019, with no long-term debt outstanding.
