Bionik Laboratories Reports Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2017 Financial Results

TORONTO and BOSTON, Nov. 15, 2016 /CNW/ -- Bionik Laboratories Corp. (OTCQX: BNKL) ("Bionik" or the "Company"), a global pioneering robotics company focused on providing rehabilitation and mobility solutions to individuals with neurological disorders, announced today its financial results for the second quarter of the 2017 fiscal year ended September 30, 2016. The Company also provided a summary of corporate highlights.

Corporate Highlights

Peter Bloch, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, stated, "Bionik has evolved significantly in such a short period of time, and I am pleased from where we have come and very enthusiastic about where we are headed.  We have emerged as a multinational company with a portfolio of commercial and development stage robotic products addressing stroke rehabilitation and mobility.  We have put into motion our strategic imperatives with a keen focus on executing a strategy for market expansion and revenue generation of our commercial products and driving our development products towards approval in key markets. We will continue to focus on driving our business strategy and laying the foundation as we seek to develop a strong commercial engine to unlock near and long-term value."

Summary of Financial Results for the Second Quarter Ended September 30, 2016 of the Fiscal Year 2017 ending March 31, 2017

For the quarter ended September 30, 2016, the Company reported a comprehensive income of $729,546 resulting in income per share of $0.01, compared to a comprehensive income of $2,318,758 for the quarter ended September 30, 2015, resulting in an income per share of $0.03.

The comprehensive income in both quarters is due to $2,530,605 of other income in the quarter ended September 30, 2016 compared to other income of $3,501,603 for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 and this other income is principally due to the change in the fair value of the warrant derivative.

The Company recorded revenues of $18,283 and $182,474 for the three and six months ended September 30, 2016 compared to $Nil for the three and six months ended September 30, 2015.  The 2015 revenues of Interactive Motion Technologies Inc. ("IMT") were not consolidated into the prior year's results as this was prior to its acquisition. IMT revenues were $374,530 and $812,944 for the three and full six months ended September 30, 2015. In 2015 the acquired company was under-funded and had no commercial team, which significantly impacted 2016 revenues. Bionik hired a Chief Commercialization Officer in August of this year to build out the sales and marketing team. Very recently, Bionik has begun to see the initial results of these efforts and expects this to accelerate as the Company continues to invest in commercialization efforts. Based on the strong clinical data, new sales and marketing efforts, an expanded product range as well as expanding the Company's sales efforts geographically, Bionik expects revenues to grow significantly.

Operating expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 was $1,807,323 compared to $1,182,845 for the quarter ended September 30, 2015. Operating expenses include non-cash flow stock based compensation and depreciation. Operating expenses excluding these two items was $1,578,891 for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 compared to $1,140,623 for the quarter ended September 30, 2015. The $438,268 increase in the expenses from 2015 to 2016 is predominantly due to:

  • Sales and marketing expenses associated with the products of $187,265 for this quarter compared to $Nil in 2015; and
  • The increase in general and administration costs as a result of legal, accounting and other one-time costs associated with:
  1. The closing of the acquisition of IMT;
  2. The change in the Company's year end from December to March in order to prepare the Company for a proposed future NASDAQ uplist;
  3. The costs connected to the Company's contractual obligations to register investor's common shares;
  4. The inclusion of IMT's administration costs since April 21, 2016; and
  5. Incremental investor relations and recruiting costs associated with these changes.

The Company ended the quarter ended September 30, 2016 with $1,677,310 of cash and cash equivalents and has a working capital deficit of $2,784,377. Excluding the non-cash warrant derivative liability, working capital would be $569,004. Bionik management is currently evaluating multiple financing options, including strategic partnerships, that are in the best interest of the Company and its shareholders in the near and long term.
