Management to Host Webcast and Conference Call Today At 4:30 p.m. ET

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 11, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HeartBeam, Inc. (NASDAQ: BEAT), a cardiac technology company that has developed the first and only 3D vector electrocardiogram (VECG) platform for heart attack detection anytime, anywhere, has reported its financial and operational results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023.

First Quarter and Subsequent 2023 Operational Highlights

  • Closed a secondary offering of $25.0 million and Registered Direct Offering of $1.5 million in May 2023 for gross proceeds totaling $26.5 million to enable the Company to execute on upcoming clinical, regulatory and commercial milestones, and extend cash runway into late 2024

  • Adjusted strategic focus to enable timely delivery of HeartBeam’s breakthrough ambulatory VECG products, the company’s key future value drivers

  • Completed a strategic acquisition of substantially all assets from LIVMOR, a digital health solutions company providing a patient-engaging remote monitoring system including the FDA-cleared Halo+™ Atrial Fibrillation Detection System

  • Appointed senior medical technology executive Robert Eno as President

Management Commentary

"In the first quarter of 2023 we continued to position the Company for the expected clearances and commercialization of the HeartBeam AIMIGo 12-Lead 3D vector electrocardiogram device," said Branislav Vajdic, PhD, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of HeartBeam.

"We recently closed $26.5 million in common stock-only financings to fund operations into late 2024. Proceeds will be used to fund development and regulatory work for the HeartBeam AIMIGo VECG device and to ready the product for initial commercialization during 2024.

"Our strategic focus is to enable timely delivery of our ambulatory VECG products, our key future value drivers, by first obtaining an FDA 510(k) clearance for the HeartBeam AIMIGo VECG device. We expect to submit this application in the coming days. This will be followed by a second FDA application on the system’s ability to synthesize a 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG). We currently estimate that we will submit this second application to the FDA in late 2023 and pursue initial commercialization in 2024.

"During the first quarter of 2023, we announced the acquisition of LIVMOR’s intellectual property and technology, including LIVMOR’s 3 US patents and the Halo+™ Atrial Fibrillation Detection System. This extends our reach into remote monitoring, which we believe will be important after we have a commercial telehealth version of HeartBeam AIMIGo on the market, expected in 2024.

"We are building on our global intellectual property portfolio, and plan to partner with PatentVest, a unified technology development and patent law firm focused on creating IP leadership for development stage technology companies, with the goal of creating clear leadership in the area of ambulatory VECG cardiac detection.

"Operationally, we announced the appointment of Robert Eno to the newly created position of President. Robert has extensive experience bringing innovative medical technology products to market and has already become invaluable as we move forward with plans to broaden our product portfolio pipeline. We are also adding world leading Key Opinion Leaders to our Medical Advisory Board to help guide our clinical and regulatory development. These Advisory Board members will be announced in the near future.

"We look forward to providing updates on our progress in the months ahead," concluded Dr. Vajdic.
