Dagi Ben-Noon, Chief Executive Officer of Inspira Technologies, stated: 
"Our research and development programs continue to progress towards meeting our strategic targets. In the first quarter of 2023 we plan to see an important component of the INSPIRA ART system, our HYLA blood sensor, commence a clinical study to be performed alongside patients undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass surgery. The study is designed to integrate clinical research into the product development cycle. The HYLA blood sensor is being designed as a non-invasive blood sensor to perform continuous blood parameter measurements in real-time, assisting physicians in the monitoring of a patient's clinical condition and alerting of a sudden change in the patient's vital signs, which may require immediate medical attention, and which may potentially save lives.

"The Company is well funded to achieve its immediate goals, as it strategically advances towards the preparation for entering the verification and validation (V&V) process, a pre-requisite for, and to be followed by, the planned submission for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance of our ALICE™ Device."

Highlights:

  • November 22, 2022 - Inspira Technologies announced a strategic agreement in Europe, with a potential value of $26.1 million for the deployment of 1,364 HYLA Blood Sensors. The agreement is for a five-year period and is subject to regulatory approvals.
  • November 10, 2022 - Inspira™ Technologies announced the grant of a patent by the Israeli Patent Office for a key safety component for the INSPIRA ART system.
  • September 7, 2022 - Inspira™ Technologies announced the performance of an HYLA blood sensor in-vivo study, in preparation for a planned clinical study. The in-vivo study team included leading ICU and respiratory specialists from the Company's Scientific Advisory Board.
  • July 11, 2022 - Inspira Technologies announced the ALICE Device, designed as a cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) or heart-lung bypass device, designed to oxygenate and circulate blood for up to six hours during cardiac surgery.
  • July 7, 2022 - Inspira Technologies announced a strategic agreement in the U.S. with a potential value of $59 million for the deployment of 3,889 HYLA Blood Sensors. The agreement is for a three-year period and is subject to regulatory approvals.
  • July 6, 2022 - Inspira Technologies announced the research and development of the HYLA non-Invasive blood sensor designed to assist physicians in monitoring a patient's clinical condition, potentially targeting the $2.5 billion arterial blood gas (ABG) market.

Financial Results for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2022

Research and development expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, were $6.2 million, compared to $1.7 million for the corresponding period in 2021. The increase is a result of the Company's recruitment of specialized manpower and the expanded research and development of its new technologies and operations.

Marketing expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, were $1.0 million compared to $391,000 for the corresponding period in 2021. The increase is attributable to increases in marketing, payroll, and share-based compensation expenses. Marketing activities commenced in the first quarter of 2021 and became more intensive with the Company's need to create brand awareness and explore go-to-market capabilities.

General and administrative (G&A) expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, were $4.3 million, compared to $3.4 million for the corresponding period in 2021. The increase resulted primarily from an increase in payroll and related expenses, as well as to costs associated with the Company's status as a publicly traded company following its initial public offering (IPO) on Nasdaq in July 2021.The increase in existing and new expenses included professional fees, director fees, and directors' and officers' insurance costs.

Finance income for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, was $4.5 million, compared to finance expenses in the amount of $573,000 for the corresponding period in 2021. The increase in finance income derived from the calculation of the fair value of the Company's financial equity liabilities to pre-IPO and IPO investors, in addition to the fluctuation in the USD exchange rate during the first half of 2022.

Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, was $7.1 million, compared to a net loss of $6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Financial Highlights for the Quarter ended September 30, 2022

Research and development expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2022, were $1.95 million, an increase of $1.37 million compared to $581,000 in research and development expenses for the corresponding period in 2021. The increase was attributable to the Company's stage and progress of the research and development process.

General and administrative expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2022, were $1.4 million, compared to $2.2 million for the corresponding period in 2021. The decrease is attributed to professionals' fees, finders' fees and IPO related expenses throughout the period when the Company went public in the third quarter of 2021.

Sales and marketing expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2022, were $301,000, compared to $147,000 for the corresponding period in 2021.

Cash, cash equivalents, and short-term bank deposits were $16.2 million as of September 30, 2022, compared to $23.7 million as of December 31, 2021.

Financial liabilities at fair value totaled $491,000 as of September 30, 2022, compared to $3.2 million as of December 31, 2021. The financial liabilities represent the fair value of the Company's equity liabilities to pre-IPO and IPO investors.

As of September 30, 2022, the Company's shareholders' equity totaled $14.9 million, compared to shareholders' equity totaling $20.3 million as of December 31, 2021.
