Business Update Highlights

“I am very pleased with the strong progress PAVmed’s subsidiaries have made on multiple fronts during the first quarter and recent weeks,” said Lishan Aklog, M.D., PAVmed’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Lucid, PAVmed’s strongest and most advanced asset, is making great commercial progress and continues to successfully finance its operations through long-term fundamental investors. Lucid now has the runway to advance through key reimbursement milestones on the pathway to profitability. As discussed last quarter, we updated the PAVmed overall strategy to drive shareholder value through independently-financed subsidiaries that leverage PAVmed’s shared infrastructure. Veris and the PMX Incubator are progressing well in furtherance of this revised strategy.”

Highlights from the first quarter and recent weeks include:

  • Yesterday, Lucid reported that 1Q24 EsoGuard ® revenue was $1.0 million, which was flat compared to 4Q23 and represents a 124 percent increase from 1Q23.
  • Strengthened balance sheet by Lucid’s completion of a $29.8 million Series B Preferred Stock Offering.
  • Peer-reviewed publication of positive data from landmark National Cancer Institute (NCI)-sponsored clinical validation study, strengthening EsoGuard’s clinical data supporting ongoing payor engagement.
  • Secured July 17, 2024 MolDX pre-submission meeting to review data for technical assessment (TA) under its foundational Local Coverage Determination (LCD).
  • Completed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with The Ohio State’s James Cancer Hospital to implement pilot program enrolling their patients onto Veris Cancer Care Platform.
  • Clear path to FDA clearance for Veris implantable monitor pending financing.
  • Actively seeking to raise capital for PortIO Corp. as part of the PMX incubator initiative, which will also include other technologies such as EsoCure and CarpX.

Financial Results:

  • For the three months ended March 31, 2024, EsoGuard related revenues were $1.0 million. Operating expenses were approximately $15.0 million which include stock-based compensation expenses of $1.9 million. GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders was approximately $22.8 million, or $(2.62) per common share.
  • As shown below and for the purpose of illustrating the effect of stock-based compensation and other non-cash income and expenses on the Company’s financial results, the Company’s non-GAAP adjusted loss was approximately $8.6 million or $(0.99) per common share.
  • PAVmed had cash and cash equivalents of $25.5 million as of March 31, 2024, compared to $19.6 million as of December 31, 2023.
  • The unaudited financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2024 were filed with the SEC on Form 10-Q on May 13, 2024, and are available at www.pavmed.com or www.sec.gov.

PAVmed Non-GAAP Measures

  • To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), management provides certain non-GAAP financial measures of the Company’s financial results. These non-GAAP financial measures include net loss before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) and non-GAAP adjusted loss, which further adjusts EBITDA for stock-based compensation expense, loss on the issuance or modification of convertible securities, the periodic change in fair value of convertible securities, and loss on debt extinguishment. The foregoing non-GAAP financial measures of EBITDA and non-GAAP adjusted loss are not recognized terms under U.S. GAAP.
  • Non-GAAP financial measures are presented with the intent of providing greater transparency to the information used by us in our financial performance analysis and operational decision-making. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful information to assist investors, shareholders, and other readers of our financial statements in making comparisons to our historical financial results and analyzing the underlying performance of our results of operations. These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be, and should not be, a substitute for, considered superior to, considered separately from, or as an alternative to, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
  • Non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance readers’ overall understanding of our current financial results and to provide further information for comparative purposes. Management believes the non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to management and investors by isolating certain expenses, gains, and losses that may not be indicative of our core operating results and business outlook. Specifically, the non-GAAP financial measures include non-GAAP adjusted loss, and its presentation is intended to help the reader understand the effect of the loss on the issuance or modification of convertible securities, the periodic change in fair value of convertible securities, the loss on debt extinguishment and the corresponding accounting for non-cash charges on financial performance. In addition, management believes non-GAAP financial measures enhance the comparability of results against prior periods.
  • A reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP measure of all non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023 are as follows:
