“We are pleased that we had strong revenue growth in Q3 compared to Q2, as we more than doubled revenue in each of our product lines,” noted Rob von der Porten, Executive Chairman, and acting CEO. “We made our first shipment of SIAscopy® units to our Brazilian distribution partner, where they will be deployed on our DermSecure® platform over the coming months. The sales and marketing team are building a pipeline of international distribution partners for our SIAscopy® on DermSecure® telemedicine platform and are experiencing strong interest in the Company’s unique teledermatology platform. While COVID-19 will continue to have an impact on all businesses, it is increasing the interest in telemedicine in general, albeit it is impacting the rate of implementation. While our revenue increased over the second quarter, the loss for the quarter was higher as we built out our sales team, increased marketing efforts, and spent on continued enhancements to our DermSecure® platform, and as well, we incurred non-cash share-based compensation expense. We remain convinced that we will have long-term, sustainable growth with the MedX DermSecure® platform and that it is the ‘Gold Standard’ in the teledermatological market space.”
The Company also announces that 800,000 stock options have been granted to Directors. Such options have an exercise price of $0.17 per share, will expire on November 25, 2025, and vest immediately.
