Novo Integrated Sciences Reports Fiscal Full Year 2021 Financial Results

BELLEVUE, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Novo Integrated Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ:NVOS) (the “Company” or “Novo”), pioneering a holistic approach to patient-first health and wellness through a multidisciplinary healthcare ecosystem of services and product innovation, today reported its financial results for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2021.

“This has been a transformative year for Novo. We have invested in several undervalued assets that collectively are core to our differentiated platform solution for healthcare delivery that puts the patient-first. In addition, the Company invested in the necessary human capital required to commercialize our technology offerings, as well as many of our product solutions,” stated Robert Mattacchione, the Company’s CEO and Board Chairman. “We have strategically made investments in Acenzia, PRO-DIP, EK-Tech Solutions, Terragenx, and brick and mortar pharmacy locations, each of which complements our organic operations. This diverse patient offering of products and services will be overlaid on Novo Connect, our sophisticated and secure mobile application, to provide data to patients in real time. We look forward to the official launch of NovoConnect in early 2022 and making further investments in the healthcare space by expanding into new jurisdictions both in North America and overseas.”

Financial Highlights for the Fiscal Year Ended August 31, 2021:

  • As of August 31, 2021, the Company’s cash and cash equivalents were $8.3 million, total assets were $61.9 million, total liabilities were $18.2 million, and stockholders’ equity was $43.9 million.
  • Revenues for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2021 were $9.3 million, representing an increase of $1.4 million, or 18.4%, from $7.9 million for the same period in 2020, principally due to periodic easing of COVID pandemic-related restrictions and approximately $0.4 million of revenue from Acenzia from the date of acquisition (June 24, 2021) through August 31, 2021.
  • Net loss attributed to Novo Integrated Sciences, Inc. for the year ended August 31, 2021 was $4,462,147, representing a decrease of $453,007, or 9.2%, from $4,915,154 for the same period in 2020. The decrease in net loss is principally due to (i) an increase in revenues and gross profit offset by additional operating costs associated with the Acenzia acquisition, (ii) an increase in amortization of intangible assets, (iii) common stock issued for services including successful uplist to the Nasdaq Capital Markets, (iv) salary expense due to hiring of senior level executives, and (v) legal fees related to the Company’s Nasdaq listing and filing of the Company’s registration statement on Form S-3.

Operational Milestones to Date:

  • Signed letter of intent to acquire seven pharmacies in the United States that collectively generated $55 million in annualized sales in 2020.
  • Acquired majority stake in Terragenx and intellectual property for FDA and Health Canada approved water-soluble iodine micro-nutrient in an all-share transaction priced at $3.35 per share.
  • Completed acquisition of Acenzia, a company that provides nutraceutical health solutions through advanced bio-science research and development, proprietary manufacturing, and personalized diagnostics in an all-share transaction at $3.91 per share.
  • Completed the acquisition of PRO-DIP, a company that has developed an innovative, patent-pending oral pouch delivery system technology which allows for broad market applications related to nutritionally focused products and medicinal based formulations in an all-share transaction at $3.98 per share.
  • Announced joint venture with EK-Tech Solutions for enhanced telehealth platform.

Corporate Highlights for the Fiscal Year Ended August 31, 2021:

  • Uplisted to the Nasdaq Capital Market in February 2021.
  • Closed on a registered direct offering of approximately $8 million at $3.35 per share.
  • Appointed Dr. Indrajit (Indra) Sinha, Ph.D. as Chief Scientific Officer.
  • Formed a Medical Advisory Board comprised of Dr. Joseph M. Chalil, Dr. Michael G. Muhonen, and Dr. Zach P. Zachariah to provide important insight and expertise as the Company expands its personalized consumer engagement across all aspects of the patient/practitioner relationship through the integration of medical technology, advanced therapeutics, and rehabilitative sciences.
  • Appointed new President and senior leadership for Novo Healthnet Limited, Novo’s wholly owned subsidiary.
  • Increased size of Board of Directors from 4 to 7 members and appointed Michael Pope, Robert Oliva, and Alex Flesias as independent directors.
  • Formed Audit Committee, Compensation Committee and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee.

About Novo Integrated Sciences, Inc.

Novo Integrated Sciences, Inc. is pioneering a holistic approach to patient-first health and wellness through a multidisciplinary healthcare ecosystem of services and product innovation. Novo offers an essential and differentiated solution to deliver, or intend to deliver, these services and products through the integration of medical technology, advanced therapeutics, and rehabilitative science.

We believe that “decentralizing” healthcare, through the integration of medical technology and interconnectivity, is an essential solution to the rapidly evolving fundamental transformation of how non-catastrophic healthcare is delivered both now and in the future. Specific to non-critical care, ongoing advancements in both medical technology and inter-connectivity are allowing for a shift of the patient/practitioner relationship to the patient’s home and away from on-site visits to primary medical centers with mass-services. This acceleration of “ease-of-access” in the patient/practitioner interaction for non-critical care diagnosis and subsequent treatment minimizes the degradation of non-critical health conditions to critical conditions as well as allowing for more cost-effective healthcare distribution.

The Company’s decentralized healthcare business model is centered on three primary pillars to best support the transformation of non-catastrophic healthcare delivery to patients and consumers:

  • First Pillar: Service Networks. Deliver multidisciplinary primary care services through (i) an affiliate network of clinic facilities, (ii) small and micro footprint sized clinic facilities primarily located within the footprint of box-store commercial enterprises, (iii) clinic facilities operated through a franchise relationship with the Company, and (iv) corporate operated clinic facilities.
  • Second Pillar: Technology. Develop, deploy, and integrate sophisticated interconnected technology, interfacing the patient to the healthcare practitioner thus expanding the reach and availability of the Company’s services, beyond the traditional clinic location, to geographic areas not readily providing advanced, peripheral based healthcare services, including the patient’s home.
  • Third Pillar: Products. Develop and distribute effective, personalized health and wellness product solutions allowing for the customization of patient preventative care remedies and ultimately a healthier population. The Company’s science-first approach to product innovation further emphasizes our mandate to create and provide over-the-counter preventative and maintenance care solutions.

Innovation through science combined with the integration of sophisticated, secure technology assures Novo Integrated Sciences of continued cutting edge advancement in patient first platforms.
