Spectral AI, Inc.

Q1 Overview

  • Research & Development Revenue of $6.3 Million

  • Improved Capital Structure Reflected in Cash of $10.2 Million

  • DeepView AI®-Burn Devices Deployed in UK; Expect Commercial Revenue in 2H 2024

  • Additional Regulatory Submissions in US and UK for DeepView™ System Expected in 2024 and 2025

DALLAS, May 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Spectral AI, Inc. (Nasdaq: MDAI) (“Spectral AI” or the “Company”), an artificial intelligence (AI) company focused on medical diagnostics for faster and more accurate treatment decisions in wound care, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024 (“Q1 2024”) and provided an update on its ongoing business activities.

“During the first quarter we continued to execute against our strategic priorities resulting in significant accomplishments across the enterprise,” said Peter M. Carlson, CEO of Spectral AI. “We made important strides towards generating our first commercial product revenue later this year with the deployment of our DeepView™ System for burn in the U.K.   These initial installments enhance patient care and promote clinician familiarity with the device, while also providing real-world data. In the U.S., we advanced clinical studies designed to further demonstrate the efficacy of our DeepView™ System in providing a “Day One” healing assessment of burn wounds and diabetic foot ulcers (DFU). Additionally, we strengthened our management team and fortified the Company’s financial position to support our growth initiatives.”

Mr. Carlson concluded, “We remain driven by our steadfast belief that our proprietary, AI-Driven, DeepView™ System can help change the standard of care in wound assessment by providing predictive clinical insights that result in more effective and more efficient care across the healthcare ecosystem. We are on track to file additional US and UK regulatory submissions in 2024 and 2025 for the approval of our DeepView™ System, and expect to expand our commercial revenue platforms over the next two years.”

SELECT BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS

Product Deployment in Support of UKCA Authorization

  • Received UKCA Authorization to commence sales of our DeepView AI®– Burn in the UK in February 2024. In connection with this authorization, we have deployed devices at multiple facilities in the UK for evaluation. Additional deployments are planned through the summer.

Clinical Trials

  • Enrolling patients in our DeepView AI®–Burn pivotal study at multiple burn centers and emergency departments across the US. The study is expected to enroll 240 patients, including both adult and pediatric subjects. This is expected to be our final clinical trial before seeking FDA approval in 2025.

  • Completed enrollment in our DFU training study in the US with expected completion of our DFU validation study in 2H 2024.

  • Completed a 76-patient enrollment for DFU for a clinical study titled, “Wound Assessment Using Spectral Imaging” that took place at The Royal College of Surgeons (RCSI) in Ireland’s Skin Wounds and Trauma (SWaT) Research Centre.

Corporate

  • Welcomed Jeremiah Sparks as Chief Commercialization Officer. Mr. Sparks, an executive at AVITA Medical prior to joining Spectral AI, brings more than 20 years of medical device marketing and business strategy, including experience in launching new products both nationally and globally.

  • Appointed Erich Spangenberg as Chief Executive Officer of the Company’s newly-formed health care IP-focused subsidiary, Spectral IP, and announced plans to explore the potential spin-off of this new subsidiary as an avenue to deliver additional value to Spectral AI shareholders. The Company also received a $1.0 million investment from an affiliate of Mr. Spangenberg to fund acquisition opportunities.

Q1 2024 FINANCIAL RESULTS OVERVIEW
All comparisons are to the first quarter ended March 31, 2023 (“Q1 2023”) unless otherwise stated.

Research & Development Revenue 1
Research & Development Revenue for Q1 2024 rose 24.6% to $6.3 million from $5.1 million, reflecting an increased level of activity under the Company’s contracts with BARDA.

Gross Margin
Gross margin for Q1 2024 improved to 46.6% from 42.9%, due to a higher reimbursement rate under the BARDA PBS Contract as compared to the rate associated with the BARDA Burn II contract.

General & Administrative Expense
General & administrative expenses in Q1 2024 were flat at $5.1 million.

Other Income (Expense)
Other expenses for Q1 2024 included borrowing related costs of $0.3 million and transaction costs of $0.7 million, each related to the Company’s previously announced financing agreements (see “Financial Condition” section below).

Net Loss
Net loss for Q1 2024 was $(3.2) million, or $(0.19) per share, compared to a net loss of $(3.6) million, or $(0.27) per share.

Financial Condition
As of March 31, 2024, cash improved to $10.2 million from $4.8 million at December 31, 2023.

As previously announced, the Company enhanced its access to capital by completing a common stock purchase agreement (“ELOC”) with an investment bank, under which the Company sold 1,187,398 shares, netting $2.7 million through March 31, 2024. The Company has the ability to drawdown an additional $3.0 million under the ELOC.

Additionally, Spectral AI entered into a fixed price standby equity purchase agreement (“SEPA”) with a long-only investor that includes a $12.5 million prepaid advance (“Advances”). As of March 31, 2024, the Company received $4.6 million, net, from the SEPA. The Company anticipates receiving $5.0 million shortly following the May 14, 2024 annual meeting, and the remaining $2.5 million of Advances 60 days thereafter. Any further draws above the Advances are at the sole discretion of the Company.

________________________
1Research and Development Revenue consisted primarily of funding from the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), part of the Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response (ASPR) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.


2024 Guidance
The Company reiterates its revenue guidance of approximately $28.0 million for FY 2024.
