ALPHARETTA, Ga., Aug. 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SANUWAVE Health, Inc. (OTCQB:SNWV), today reported financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and provided a business update.  The Company will host a conference call at 11AM Eastern Time today.

Highlights of the second quarter and recent weeks:

  • FDA Submission:  The Company submitted a de novo petition to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for review and classification of the dermaPACE® System for treating Diabetic Foot Ulcers (DFU) as a Class II device in July 2016.  The Company expects to hear feedback from the FDA within 120 days.
     
  • Convertible Debentures:  On July 29, 2016, the Company entered into a financing transaction for the sale of a Convertible Debenture in the principal amount of up to $500,000, with gross proceeds of $450,000 to the Company after payment of a 10% original issue discount.  The Company has received principal of $200,000 to date.
     
  • Renegotiated Debt:  SANUWAVE signed a second amendment with HealthTronics, Inc. to extend the due date of its two promissory notes from January 31, 2017 to January 31, 2018.
     
  • SANUWAVE Presentation on Biofilms Elimination:  SANUWAVE had a podium presentation at the Center for Biofilm Engineering’s 2016 Biofilm Science and Technology Meeting held at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana on July 19-21, 2016.  The Company’s presentation showed the effectiveness of its shock wave technology in removing difficult to eradicate medical biofilms created by both Gram-negative and Gram-positive species (Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus) or non-medical biofilms formed by seawater organisms in tests performed by the Center for Biofilm Engineering at Montana State University.  Furthermore, our shock wave technology demonstrated bacterial killing in tests performed at University of Georgia.  As a guest speaker, Dr. Iulian Cioanta, SANUWAVE’s Vice President of Research and Development, presented these results that were very well received by audience and raised the interest of participants for potential collaboration in the field of biofilms eradication.

“We have had a very productive second quarter, maintaining steady revenue growth over 2015 and entering into agreements to further extend the maturity date of our long term debt and procure financing for operations,” stated Kevin A. Richardson, II, Chairman of the board of SANUWAVE.  “We achieved our critical goal of submitting our petition to the FDA for review and classification of the dermaPACE to treat diabetic foot ulcers.”

“We look forward to a positive response in the first quarter of 2017 from the FDA in support of our dermaPACE to treat diabetic foot ulcers.  We will continue our search for a partner in a joint venture or partnership for commercialization on the product upon approval while also planning for a launch of the product on our own.  We are also working on a number of other non-medical initiatives, which we will keep shareholders abreast of as they occur,” concluded Mr. Richardson.

Second Quarter Financial Results
Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2016 were $203,406, compared to $239,983 for the same period in 2015, a decrease of $36,577, or 15%.  The decrease in revenues for 2016 was due to higher sales of new orthoPACE devices and applicators in Europe and Asia/Pacific in 2015, there were four new devices sold in 2015 and two new devices and two demonstration devices sold in 2016.

Research and development expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2016 were $476,167, compared to $456,789 for the same period in 2015, an increase of $19,378, or 4%.  Research and development expenses increased in 2016 as a result of stock based compensation for options issued in July 2016 and higher travel expense.  This is partially offset by lower payments to third party clinical sites participating in the dermaPACE clinical study as the patient enrollment was completed in 2015 and lower consulting related costs as the data results were also completed in 2015, and higher consulting expenses related to the pre-submission package to the FDA in 2016. 
                                                                                                     
General and administrative expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2016 were $589,896, as compared to $636,570 for the same period in 2015, a decrease of $46,674, or 7%.  The decrease in general and administrative expenses is primarily due to reduced salary and related costs as a result of reduction in headcount in July 2015 and lower legal fees and is partially offset by stock based compensation for options issued in July 2016.

Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2016 was $1,122,123, or ($0.01) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1,521,533, or ($0.02) per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2015, a decrease in the net loss of $399,410, or 26%.  The decrease in the net loss for 2016 was primarily due to the gain on the warrant valuation. 

Six Months Ended June 30, 2016 Financial Results
Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2016 were $472,730, compared to $450,435 for the same period in 2015, an increase of $22,295, or 5%.  Revenues resulted primarily from sales in Europe, Asia and Asia/Pacific of our orthoPACE device and related applicators.  The increase in revenues for 2016 was due to higher sales of orthoPACE devices and refurbishment of applicators as well as higher sales of wound kits as compared to 2015.

Research and development expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2016 were $786,122, compared to $1,091,412 for the same period in 2015, a decrease of $305,290, or 28%.  Research and development costs include payments to third parties that specifically relate to our products in clinical development, such as payments to contract research organizations, clinical investigators, clinical monitors, clinical related consultants and insurance premiums for clinical studies.  In addition, employee costs (salaries, payroll taxes, benefits, and travel) for employees of the regulatory affairs, clinical affairs, quality assurance, and research and development departments are classified as research and development costs.  Research and development expenses decreased in 2016 as a result of lower payments to third party clinical sites participating in the dermaPACE clinical study as the patient enrollment was completed in 2015 and lower consulting related costs as the data results were also completed in 2015, and higher consulting expenses related to the pre-submission package to the FDA in 2016.  This is partially offset by stock based compensation for options issued in July 2016 and higher bonus expense. 

General and administrative expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2016 were $1,089,028, as compared to $1,202,862 for the same period in 2015, a decrease of $113,834, or 9%.  The decrease in general and administrative expenses is primarily due to reduced salary and related costs as a result of reduction in headcount in July 2015 and lower legal fees and is partially offset by stock based compensation for options issued in July 2016.

Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2016 was $2,846,699, or ($0.03) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2,680,648, or ($0.04) per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2015, an increase in the net loss of $166,051, or 6%.  The increase in the net loss for 2016 was primarily due to the loss on the Series A warrant conversion which is partially offset by lower operating expenses as noted above.

The Company will also host a conference call on Monday, August 15, 2016, beginning at 11AM Eastern Time to discuss the second quarter financial results, provide a business update and answer questions.  Shareholders and other interested parties can participate in the conference call by dialing 877-407-9055 (U.S. and Canada) or 201-493-6743 (international).
