Key highlights for our fiscal year ended March 31, 2023, were:
|●||Revenues increased to $917,162 in fiscal 2023, compared to revenues of $115,586 for our fiscal year ended March 31, 2022 (“fiscal 2022”);|
|●||Entered into an exclusive distribution agreement (“Distribution Agreement”) with MWI Veterinary Supply, a leading distributor of animal health products and a subsidiary of AmerisourceBergen (“MWI”) in June 2022. We recognized revenues from product sales under the Distribution Agreement of $636,345 or 69% of total revenues for the year ended March 31, 2023;|
|●||Increased brand awareness and market awareness by participating in several key national trade shows and conferences, including having Dr. Joseph Manning, DVM, the Company’s Senior Technical Veterinarian present on the use of Spryng™ at the American Association of Equine Practitioners Annual Conference in November 2022;|
|●||Reported results on the first cohort of dogs in a clinical study, which examined the benefit and tolerability of an intra-articular injection of Spryng™ into the stifle joint of dogs with suspected cruciate ligament damage or tear (similar to an anterior cruciate ligament (“ACL”) tear in humans) in March 2023. The preliminary results demonstrated that Spryng™ may be a viable alternative for medical management of dogs with an ACL injury; and|
|●||Signed a lease agreement for a new production and warehouse space in Edina, Minnesota in January 2023. We plan to have this facility operational in the fourth quarter of our fiscal year ending March 31, 2024 (“fiscal 2024”).|
John Lai, CEO, commented, “I am pleased by our team’s performance. We executed well on our strategy of developing clinical data on the efficacy of Spryng™, increased distribution through MWI, increased market awareness of Spryng™ to veterinarians and delivered strong revenue growth in fiscal 2023.
We are excited about the preliminary clinical results from the cruciate ligament study on canines and expect to receive the final clinical results in Q2 of fiscal 2024. We expect to use this clinical data to expand the application of Spryng™ to treat canines and felines who have cruciate ligament injuries.
We are also taking several steps to position the Company for future success in fiscal 2024. We plan to add more sales and marketing personnel to support our distribution relationship with MWI and veterinary clinics, add to our technical service teams, complete clinical studies in equine, canine and feline companion animals, increase adoption of Spryng™ by key opinion leaders and increase marketing awareness through trade shows and digital outreach.”
