EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/21/12 -- Innovotech Inc. (TSX VENTURE:IOT) announced its unaudited financial and operational results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.
-- Strongest quarter in 2012 for contract research revenue. -- Advanced antimicrobial coating and wound dressing attracts industry leaders because of unique properties -- Overcame supply problems with InnovoSCEPT susceptibility tests and joined full scale efforts of marketing partner to introduce the new technology to the veterinary market
"The Company showed the strongest revenues of the year in contract research during the quarter" said Ken Boutilier, President of Innovotech. "We attribute this to our marketing efforts including the Biofilm Workshop held for the U.S. FDA and clients earlier this year."
"In addition, we have seen strong interest from medical device companies for our first antimicrobial coating from the AgreGuard family. Response to this unique product has been good, as rates of hospital-acquired infections are increasing and hospitals are seeking better antimicrobial products from medical device companies" says Boutilier.
Company has helped resolve previously disclosed problems with the manufacturing of InnovoSCEPT biofilm susceptibility tests and is working with its distribution partner to introduce the new technology to the veterinary market.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Three-month Three-month Nine-month Nine-month ($) period ended period ended period ended period ended September 30, September 30, September 30, September 30, 2012 2011 2012 2011 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Revenues 342,031 393,971 644,860 825,428 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- G&A 270,165 335,876 816,862 890,200 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- R&D 264,037 253,415 817,731 760,674 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Net loss (235,302) (189,198) (1,075,354) (843,049) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Share Price - - .35 .70 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cash position - - 242,633 544,062 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the three-month period ended September 30, 2012, total revenues were $342,031 (2011 - $393,970; 2010 - $425,051). This included contract research revenue of $285,834 (2011 - $327,614; 2010 - $395,332) and product sales of $56,197 (2011 - $66,356; 2010 - $29,719). Contract research revenue has improved over the course of the year but did not reach the Q3 2011 level. Low product sales were due to delays in manufacturing of InnovoSCEPT(TM) veterinary tests. In the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012, total revenues were $644,860 (2011 - $825,428; 2010 - $1,287,709).
General and Administrative Expense
In the three-month period ended September 30, 2012, general and administrative expense, including stock based compensation expense and allocated amortization expense, was $270,165 (2011 - $335,876). In the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012, general and administrative expenses were $816,862 (2011 - $890,200). The reduction of G&A expenses is a result of selective staff reduction measures taken during the year.
Research and Development
In the three-month period ended September 30, 2012, research and development expense was $264,037 (2011 - $253,415). The cost was partially offset by various grants of $129,056 (2011 - $118,374). In the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012, research and development expense was $817,731 (2011 - $760,674). Increased research and development costs are largely due to costs associated with the regulatory package being developed for Agress® for the EPA submission and development of improved manufacturing methods; and for costs incurred in the development of the AgreGuard family of products.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
At September 30 2012, the Company had $242,633 in cash compared to $459,275 at December 31, 2011. Slower than anticipated recovery of contract research revenue combined with manufacturing delays of InnovoSCEPT(TM) veterinary tests have contributed to a decrease in cash reserves. The company has taken active measures to increase contract research and to accelerate product sales revenue.

About Innovotech Inc.
Innovotech Inc. is a pioneer in the field of biofilm product development, focused on providing innovative and practical solutions to medical, agricultural and industrial problems caused by microbial biofilms. Biofilms are organized communities of microorganisms that exist in virtually every natural environment and are responsible for a host of diseases in human health, animal health and agriculture. There are few products or regulatory standards, aside from those of Innovotech, designed specifically for biofilm-forming organisms.
Innovotech has a broad range of products that address the issue of biofilms within a number of different industries, including commercially available products in three market segments; the MBEC Assay(TM), bioFILM PA(TM), InnovoSCEPT-Human and InnovoSCEPT-Veterinary tests. The MBEC Assay(TM) is a high throughput biofilm growth device that was recently approved as an ASTM International standard. bioFILM PA(TM) and InnovoSCEPT-Human are the first diagnostic tests to assist physicians in the selection of the most effective antibiotic treatment for patients with biofilm-based chronic infections, while the InnovoSCEPT veterinary tests are designed to determine the most effective antibiotic treatment for chronic infections in both large and small animals.
Innovotech also has two products in advanced stages of development; Agress® is a unique, environmentally friendly seed treatment and plant spray designed to protect crops against both bacterial and fungal infections and AgreGuard(TM) is a unique antimicrobial for coating medical devices such as catheters.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.

Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT.
