Movano Inc. Provides Business Update and Reports Fourth Quarter 2021 Financial Results


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


Pleasanton, Calif. – March 24, 2022 – Today, Movano Inc. (NASDAQ:MOVE) reported financial results for the three months ending December 31, 2021 and provided a business update. With a mission to empower and inspire you to live a healthier, happier life, the Company continues to develop its platform that will deliver purpose-driven healthcare solutions at the intersection of medtech and consumer devices.


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


In December 2021, Movano unveiled plans for its first product, the Movano Ring, as a part of its virtual participation at CES 2022. The smart ring and accompanying mobile app solution combines vital health metrics with personalized intelligent feedback and is designed to help women of all ages make lifestyle changes and take a more proactive approach to managing their health. The Movano Ring will measure heart rate, heart rate variability (HRV), sleep, respiration rate, temperature, blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), steps, calories and incorporate women-centric features and design. The Movano Ring is the Company’s foundational product as it works toward FDA clearances to add medical data, including cuffless blood pressure and non-invasive glucose measurements.


In the fourth quarter 2021, the Company completed its third and largest Institutional Review Board (IRB)-approved blood pressure clinical study with 110 participants at the Movano Clinical Lab. During the study, participants wore Movano’s adjustable full finger ring prototype and the Company’s wrist-worn wearable prototype along with a hospital-grade FDA-cleared vital signs monitor as the control. Movano is actively evaluating the results of the study. The Company is using three different calibration methods to analyze the accuracy of the blood pressure data and is making good progress. During the study, the Company also collected SpO2 and heart rate data. Based upon the analysis thus far, the Company believes the accuracy of the SpO2 and heart rate data will be commensurate with predicate devices that have received FDA clearance.


Additionally, in February 2022, Movano completed its second IRB-approved glucose pilot study, which was conducted on 10 participants with diabetes in conjunction with an independent FDA-compliant clinical lab. During each four-hour session, participants wore Movano’s wrist-worn wearable prototype and had their glucose levels tracked and recorded using three reference devices. For glucose, an FDA cleared finger stick glucose tester and participants’ existing continuous glucose monitoring device were both used. For blood pressure, an FDA cleared vital signs monitoring device was used as the reference device. The blood pressure and glucose studies will allow Movano to further refine the algorithms it uses to calculate blood pressure, glucose and other key vital sign measurements, as well as determine the next series of studies to be executed by the Company in support of future FDA clearances.







In March 2022, fabrication partner GlobalFoundries delivered Movano’s single chip solution to the Company, as planned. The testing process recently commenced and is expected to continue through the Spring, in line with previous expectations. The tapeout and fabrication of the single-chip solution is a significant milestone as it allows Movano to shrink its proprietary multi-chip architecture into a single integrated circuit, providing more flexibility to design small form factors that are key to enabling competitive health solutions.


During the fourth quarter of 2021 and into the first quarter of 2022, the Company made significant progress towards the commercialization of its first product. As previously announced, the Company recently made key hires in the area of Business Development and Strategy, and expects to make further announcements in the coming weeks in regards to expanding its go-to-market leadership team. Leveraging additional internal and external resources, the Company expects to Beta launch the Movano Ring in the second half of 2022.


“Since our IPO one year ago, we have been diligently laying the groundwork to develop a platform of purpose-driven, competitive and durable healthcare solutions while remaining dedicated to our mission to empower and inspire you to live a happier, healthier life,” said Dr. John Mastrototaro, CEO of Movano Inc. “We believe there’s a tremendous opportunity for a solution, like the Movano Ring, that women can both trust as a tool to help them advocate for their health and enjoy wearing everyday, too. We’re structuring Movano as a medical device company in order to pursue FDA clearances that will validate the reliability of our data. We are also prioritizing sleek designs and an intuitive app experience that can surface the warning signals of chronic conditions and inspire behaviorial change, helping women of all ages feel their best.”


Fourth Quarter 2021 Financial Results


Movano reported a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $6.3 million, or a loss of $0.19 per basic and diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared with a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $7.4 million, or a loss of $1.67 per basic and diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2020. For the year ended December 31, 2021, net loss attributable to common stockholders was $24.3 million or $0.92 per share, compared with a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $21.9 million or $6.85 per share for the year ended December 31, 2020.


The Company reported an operating loss of $6.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to an operating loss of $3.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2020.







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 fourth quarter of 2021 or the fourth quarter of 2020.


The Company had $33.6 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of December 31, 2021, compared to $5.7 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, as of December 31, 2020.


The total number of shares outstanding was 32,772,060 as of December 31, 2021.
