Innovotech Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

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.

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.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.

How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!
Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...

Nowadays, a large number of sensors and devices are connected to the network. Leading-edge IoT technologies integrate various types of sensor data to create a new value for several business decision scenarios. The transparent cloud is a model of a new IoT emergence service platform. Many service providers store and access various types of sensor data in order to create and find out new business values by integrating such data.
