(OTCPK: SNWV), a leading provider of next-generation wound care products, reported financial results for their second quarter ending June 30, 2022, with the SEC on Friday, August 12, 2022. The Company will host a live conference call on Tuesday, August 16, 2022, at 12:30 (EDT) to provide a business update (Dial-in information below).

  • Over 50 systems placed to treat wounds  
    • 100% increase from the 25 systems placed in Q2 2021
  • Over 40,000 wound treatments administered 
    • Up from 31,000 treatments administered in Q2 2021

“Our key ENERGY FIRST products, dermaPACE® and UltraMIST®, continue to show strong acceptance and growth due to their robust clinical and financial profiles and increasingly attractive reimbursement, driven by a shift in payor focus to evidence-based medicine in wound care.  As our devices ship and our footprint widens, it has allowed the company to build a high degree of recurring usage revenue.  This effort has been hampered over the past year as the company has also spent significant time and effort on fixing our accounting implementation that did not go as planned.  Disruption from this process flow issue led to late filings, which led to our issues on the OTC and Pink Sheets. It also had a significant financial impact as it drew attention and resources away from growth.  That is in the past, and as we sit today, we are now timely and current in our SEC filings, and the excessive outside costs to fix the problem have abated, lowering our break-even point.  The company is now positioned to focus on profitable growth as we capture the opportunity in the wound care space,” stated Kevin Richardson, CEO.

Quarter Financial Results

Revenues for the quarter, starting April 1, 2022, and ending June 30, 2022, came in at $3.9 million, an increase of $1 million or 33% when compared to the $ 2.9 million for the same period in 2021.  The increased revenue was primarily driven by an increase in sales of the UltraMIST system. The company moved manufacturing from Georgia to Minnesota, which impacted the timing of international shipments resulting in a $100,000 reduction in international revenue year-over-year.

Gross margin increased to 72% from 64% as cost of revenue remained flat.  The improvements were driven due to product mix and more efficient customer service and shipping.   

Operating loss was $2 million compared to $4 million in the year prior.  The improvement is due to an increase in gross income and a reduction in sales, marketing, and R&D expenses.
