Movano Health Provides Business Update and Reports Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results


Conference call begins at 2:00 p.m. Pacific time today


Pleasanton, Calif. – August 14, 2023 – Today, Movano Health (Nasdaq: MOVE), a purpose-driven healthcare solutions company at the intersection of medical and consumer devices and makers of the Evie Ring, reported financial results for the three months ending June 30, 2023 and provided a business update.


Key highlights from the second quarter and recent weeks include:


Movano Health demonstrated significant progress with the development of the Evie Ring, as well as fulfilling the requirements of its FDA submission. The Company validated a recently released, high-performance sensor that could improve the efficacy of the ring and help position the Company’s first commercial product for success. Given expected implementation and testing of the sensor and related solution enhancements, the Company plans to launch Evie before Black Friday 2023.


The Evie Ring continues to generate strong consumer interest and has reached a major milestone through strategic paid and organic social media and email content. Year-to-date, more than 600,000 people have visited eviering.com and more than 100,000 individuals signed up to receive updates about Evie’s release, demonstrating momentum for the upcoming launch.


Movano Health successfully submitted its first 510(k) application to the FDA for the Evie Ring’s pulse oximeter, making Evie one of the first consumer wearables to seek FDA clearance as a medical device. The submission recently passed an initial review for completeness and is now under full review by the FDA.


The Company is preparing for its second round of beta programs ahead of the Evie Ring’s upcoming commercial launch. Beta partners include a global athletic apparel company, a major health insurer and a leading remote patient monitoring company.


Movano Health announced the formation of its Medical Advisory Board. The initial panel is composed of healthcare industry subject matter experts in women’s health, mental health, and sleep, who will serve as trusted advisors to the Evie team regarding the development of its medical-grade smart ring for women and provide insights to establish Evie as a highly credible health and wellness resource.


In May, the Company completed an IRB-approved clinical study on over 50 volunteers in the Movano Health Clinical Lab to test the efficacy of its proprietary, single chip prototype in estimating blood pressure. Movano Health plans to commence a study on an additional 50 volunteers in the near term with a newly modified prototype.


With the launch of the Evie Ring, we have an opportunity to deliver a solution that ushers in a new era of women’s health,” said John Mastrototaro, CEO of Movano Health. “Evie is not just another wearable device; it is a medical-grade smart ring designed for women that we believe meets the guidelines necessary for FDA clearance as a medical device which we are currently seeking. We’re carving out a new category of health-focused wearables by providing medical-grade accuracy, personalized insights and a customized user experience.






Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results and Recent Capital Markets Activity


Movano Health reported a net loss of $7.3 million and a loss of $(0.17) per basic and diluted share, in the second quarter of 2023, compared with a net loss of $6.9 million and a loss of $(0.21) per basic and diluted share, in the second quarter of 2022.


The Company reported an operating loss of $7.4 million in the second quarter of 2023 compared to an operating loss of $6.8 million in the second quarter of 2022.


Movano Health is a development stage company and, as such, the Company did not generate revenue in either the second quarter of 2023 or the second quarter of 2022.


The Company had $14.5 million in cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2023, compared to $10.8 million in cash and cash equivalents as of December 2022.


During the second quarter of 2023, Movano Health raised $9.2 million in gross proceeds ($8.1 million in net proceeds) through an underwritten public offering of 9.2 million shares of its common stock.


The total number of shares outstanding was 50,646,661 as of June 30, 2023.
