CollPlant Reports Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results and Provides Business Update

REHOVOT, Israel, Sept. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- CollPlant (NASDAQ: CLGN), a regenerative medicine company, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019 and provided an update on the Company's business developments. Certain metrics, including those expressed on an adjusted basis, are non-GAAP measures. See "Use of Non-IFRS (non-GAAP) Measures" below.

CollPlant reported revenues of $606,000 for the second quarter of 2019, an increase of 232% compared to $182,000 in the second quarter of 2018. The Company ended the second quarter of 2019 with $1.7 million in cash and cash equivalents, and received additional funds of $5.5 million in September, through purchase agreements with certain investors. Comprehensive loss for the second quarter of 2019 was $1.5 million, or $0.33 per share.

"During the second quarter of 2019, we continued advancing our 3D bioprinting collaboration with United Therapeutics Corporation which is using CollPlant's rhCollagen-based BioInk to 3D bioprint lung scaffolds with the longer-term goal of enabling an unlimited supply of transplantable lungs for patients with serious medical conditions," said Yehiel Tal, CollPlant's Chief Executive Officer. "Furthermore, we are developing collaborations with leading companies that are developing 3D bioprinted tissues, and we continue to engage with large international healthcare companies that seek to implement our revolutionary technology in their product pipeline."

"The $5.5 million round we recently received is intended to support the advancement of our pipeline in the fields of medical aesthetics and 3D bioprinting of tissues and organs. We are very pleased to have entered into this transaction with Ami Sagi, who increased his stake in CollPlant as our largest shareholder, and we are equally pleased to welcome a new group of U.S. investors who have deep expertise in 3D printing. Following shareholder approval of the transaction at a shareholders' meeting scheduled for October 27, 2019, we expect our shareholders' equity  to be above $2.5 million on such date," stated Mr. Tal. 

"We were excited with the development of our second product line for the medical aesthetics market, 3D bioprinted implants for breast regeneration. We believe our technology can eliminate the high risk for adverse events associated with permanent breast implants by providing a revolutionary alternative that enables the body to regenerate its own breast tissue. This technology is already raising interest from leading companies in the breast implant market," Mr. Tal continued.

"Our dermal filler product line, CollPlant's first product for the medical aesthetics market, addresses the need for a more innovative way to treat wrinkles. This product line combines our proprietary plant-based, tissue regenerating rhCollagen with hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring, moisture-binding compound, widely used in dermal fillers today," added Mr. Tal.

"CollPlant's revolutionary technology continued to gain recognition and validation in the scientific and medical communities. In April, Science Translational Medicine published a study showing a composite matrix based on CollPlant's rhCollagen, that led to bone growth superior to the current standard of care for bone regeneration. In May 2019, CollPlant presented the utilization of its rhCollagen in the field of 3D bioprinting tissues and organs at the Annual Meeting of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS) European Union Chapter in Greece. In June 2019, results from a clinical study conducted with our VergenixFG advanced wound care product were presented at the 29th Conference of the European Wound Management Association. The data demonstrated remarkable wound closure rates achieved with single application use of VergenixFG," Mr. Tal concluded.
