PLEASANTON, Calif., May 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Movano Inc. (NASDAQ: MOVE), a purpose-driven healthcare solutions company at the intersection of medtech and consumer devices, reported financial results for the three months ending March 31, 2022 and provided a business update.

Highlights from the first quarter and recent weeks include the following:

  • Movano has successfully validated the functionality of its proprietary and patented system-on-a-chip (SoC), which is the smallest ever custom mmWave integrated sensor designed specifically for non-invasive glucose and cuffless blood pressure monitoring. While the majority of current wearables on the market use off-the-shelf optical sensors, Movano spent four years developing, designing and shrinking its multi-chip architecture from four integrated circuits into a single SoC in an effort to deliver a higher level of accuracy, offer form factor flexibility and provide its technology to consumers at a lower price point. Movano is currently integrating the SoC into a new prototype system, which will be closer in size and shape to its final product, and enable the Company to conduct longer, more complex blood pressure and glucose studies.

  • Alongside this milestone, Movano was granted one new patent, marking a total of seven U.S. patents currently issued to the Company. The new patent protects innovations around Movano's multi-band chip design, which uses signal diversity and advanced signal processing capabilities and will be integrated into various medical devices in the future.

  • Movano hired a world class go-to-market (GOTM) leadership team to prepare for commercialization of the Movano Ring and future medical devices. The GOTM team is currently planning for Movano's limited beta release, which is on track to take place in 2H 2022, as previously announced, as well as building the foundation for a broader direct-to-consumer market launch following a successful beta program. Additionally, the Company continues to have conversations with potential strategic partners that align with the Company's mission and goals in the healthcare and consumer sectors. As previously announced, the GOTM leadership team includes:
    • Chief Marketing Officer, Tyla Bucher, who has over two decades of experience building and launching global integrated consumer marketing campaigns for top-tier brands, including Hydrow, Hasbro and Twentieth Century Fox.
    • Vice President of Strategy, Stacy Salvi, who was formerly Head of Strategic Partnerships for Google Fitbit. Stacy helped launch nearly 20 products to more than 116 million users, both as an attorney and from within the product team and guided strategy for partnerships, product development, sales and marketing to support the company's growth.
    • Vice President of Business Development, Michael Soule, who has held several senior leadership roles managing global sales, strategic direction and new business development at Embr Labs, Bose Health, Medtronic, Weight Watchers, and more.

  • Nan Kirsten Forte, a pioneer within the healthcare media industry with a track record of success in marketing, partnerships, go-to-market execution, and mergers and acquisitions, recently joined Movano's Board of Directors. Over her 30-year career, Nan has been an entrepreneur in successful start-ups and an "intrapreneur" at public companies, such as WebMD and now Everyday Health Group. Among her many accomplishments, Nan spearheaded the development of WebMD's Symptom Checker and helped grow the WebMD audience from 1 million to over 120 million monthly users. Nan will Chair the Corporate Development Committee of the Board of Directors, which will review and evaluate business development, capital management and commercialization activities.

"In my 30 plus years in the healthcare industry, I've brought novel medical devices to the market which have improved the lives of people with chronic conditions. While rewarding, I believe the technology we're developing at Movano is some of the most cutting edge and exciting I've worked on because of the opportunity to positively impact a much broader group of people – the hundreds of millions of individuals worldwide who have or are at risk of getting diabetes or hypertension or who just want to regain control of their wellbeing," said Dr. John Mastrototaro, CEO of Movano Inc. "At Movano, we're developing technology that combines the best of the consumer and medical worlds to provide equitable access to health data with timely feedback through beautifully designed products. We're moving healthcare technology in a direction that's more approachable, both in price and in experience, arming consumers with medically validated data and key insights they can trust, and packaging it into a solution that looks great and provides real value, so it becomes a seamless part of consumers' everyday lifestyle and helps them achieve a more well balanced, healthier and happier life."

First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

  • Movano reported a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $6.9 million, or a loss of $(0.21) per basic and diluted share, in the first quarter of 2022, compared with a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $8.1 million, or a loss of $(1.01) per basic and diluted share, in the first quarter of 2021.

  • The Company reported an operating loss of $6.9 million in the first quarter of 2022 compared to an operating loss of $3.3 million in the first quarter of 2021.

  • Movano is a development stage company and the majority of its business activities to date and planned future activities will be devoted to research and development. As such, the Company did not generate revenue in either the first quarter of 2022 or the first quarter of 2021.

  • The Company had $27.7 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of March 31, 2022, compared to $33.6 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, as of December 31, 2021.
