Recent Highlights

  • Revenues of $336,071 in the third quarter of 2020 increased 37% sequentially and 11% compared to the year ago quarter.

  • Effective November 13, 2020, shares of the Company's common stock began trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market.

  • Established a joint venture to operate dedicated INVOcell fertility clinics in Mexico.

  • Submitted a 510k with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for 5-day label expansion utilizing the retrospective data made available earlier this year.

  • Strengthened the board with the addition of independent directors Barbara Ryan, Matthew Szot and Jeffrey J. Segal, M.D.

  • Ended the quarter, September 30, 2020, with a cash position of approximately $0.9 million. In November 2020, the Company announced the execution of an underwriting agreement with Roth Capital Partners for an underwritten public offering of 3,625,000 shares of its common stock at a public offering price of $3.20 per share for expected total gross proceeds of $11.6 million. The offering is expected to close on November 17, 2020.

  • Net loss for the third quarter totaled $(1.77) million, which included $(837,236) of non-cash charges primarily related to the debt discount amortization and stock-based compensation. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter period was $(934,788).

Management Discussion

"Sales during the third quarter ended September 30, 2020 increased 37% sequentially over the quarter ended June 30, 2020, driven by higher sales in the United States as our partner Ferring placed additional orders toward the required annual minimum," commented Steve Shum, Chief Executive Officer of INVO Bioscience. "Although the market for fertility treatment services has been affected by COVID-19 this year, we have utilized this period to put in place what we believe are the necessary and important building blocks to create an organization well positioned to rapidly expand the adoption of the INVOcell solution, and we are starting to recognize the benefit of this work. In our opinion, the additional retrospective data made available this year, which represented the second year of available INVOcell usage data, provides a critically important element for our commercialization efforts."

"One of our most recent developments included the signing of our second joint venture agreement to open dedicated INVO clinics, this one in Mexico with Dr. Francisco Arredondo and Dr. Ramiro Ramirez. Dr. Arredondo was one of the early adopters of the INVOcell solution while practicing in the United States. We continue to engage in active discussions with additional partners in many of the major fertility markets for both distribution agreements and joint-venture concepts."

"We also took what we believe were critical and necessary actions to strengthen the Company operationally, financially and functionally which we believe positions us well to execute on our initiatives. These included the hiring of highly accomplished industry individuals to drive the commercialization efforts; the raising of capital required to fund our key commercial and development programs; the appointment of independent board members to meet corporate governance requirements; and the listing of the Company on the Nasdaq. With our strengthened balance sheet, we believe we have the tools, infrastructure and people now in place to drive long-term adoption of INVOcell, grow revenue, achieve profitability and drive shareholder value," concluded Mr. Shum.

Market Update

  • United States: We continue to focus our U.S. efforts on supporting our partner, Ferring, and establishing certain INVO clinics in accordance with our agreement. Although the effort to develop INVO clinics has taken longer than we originally envisioned, we believe we are making excellent progress and expect to provide updates near-term.

  • Mexico: In September 2020, INVO Bioscience created a joint venture with Dr. Francisco Arredondo, MD MPH, a respected and experienced board certified reproductive endocrinologist, and Dr. Ramiro Ramirez, MD, a physician and owner of several successful enterprises in Mexico, focused on developing the Mexico market for INVOcell. Dr. Arredondo was an early adopter of the INVOcell solution as he began offering IVC via the INVOcell to his patients at fertility clinics in San Antonio and Austin in 2016. In 2017, due to the initial success in expanding the accessibility of infertility treatment to patients utilizing INVOcell, he decided to open a center where he would exclusively offer the INVOcell solution in McAllen, Texas. The new jointly owned operation is targeting to open the initial center in the city of Monterrey, Mexico in early 2021.

  • India: INVO Biosciences' JV partnership, signed in January 2020, is focused on opening dedicated INVO-only clinics in the India marketplace. While these efforts have and continue to be delayed due to the pandemic and the various lockdowns, the joint-venture's revised target for establishing the first clinic is now first quarter of 2021.

  • Africa and Eurasia: The Company previously executed distribution agreements in certain markets in Africa and Eurasia toward the end of 2019. Following execution of those agreements, the Company began the product registration and approval process in order to begin importing into those markets. The Company has received the first of the product registration approvals for Turkey and Jordan and is now working with those distribution partners to begin training and commercialization activities. Work is continuing with the remaining countries to complete registrations.

  • New Markets: INVO Bioscience is targeting a number of additional markets outside the U.S. (OUS) and has discussions underway in Canada, Columbia, Spain, Macedonia, Indonesia, Russia, Malaysia, and China among others. The Company is maintaining its goal of adding additional OUS markets through distribution or partnerships before year end.

Clinical/Regulatory Update

The Company continues to advance its 5-day label expansion efforts. The clinical trial, which previously received IRB approval to begin recruitment, and was placed on hold earlier this year due to the pandemic, should be ready to resume shortly. Separately, a 510(k) application utilizing real world data to support label expansion was submitted and is now pending with the FDA. The Company received a request for additional information from the FDA and is preparing its response to those questions, expected to be submitted in January 2021.

Financial Results

Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2020, was $336,071 compared to $303,571 for the same three-month period in 2019, an increase of 11%, and compared to $246,072 in the second quarter of 2020 ended June 30, 2020, an increase of 37%.

The gross margin reported for the three months ended September 30, 2020 was 92% compared to 85% for the three months ended September 30, 2019.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2020 were $1,463,887 compared to $891,008 for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The increase of $572,879 or 64%, in the third quarter of 2020 was primarily the result of an increase in personnel expenses, stock-based compensation and other corporate expenses.

We began to fund additional research and development ("R&D") efforts in 2020 in order to support our 5-day label expansion efforts, and additional patent filings. R&D expenses were $112,552 for the three months ended September 30, 2020. During the same period in 2019 we did not fund any R&D activity.

During the three months ended September 30, 2020, we incurred $504,061 in interest expense, compared to $47,462 in the three months period ended September 30, 2019. The increase of $456,599 or approximately 962% was primarily due to the increase in the amortization of the debt discount, debt issuance cost and interest on the 2020 Convertible Notes.

We reported a net loss of $1,771,827 for the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to a net loss of $710,334 for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The increase of $1,061,493 or approximately 149%, is primarily due to an increase in operating expense, interest expenses and financing fees. Total non-cash related expenses in the period totaled $837,236, primarily associated with the debt amortization and equity-based expensing.

The Company ended the quarter ended September 30, 2020 with a cash position of approximately $0.9 million. In November 2020, the Company announced of its execution of an underwriting agreement with Roth Capital Partners for an underwritten public offering of 3,625,000 shares of its common stock at a public offering price of $3.20 per share. Upon closing of the offering, the gross proceeds to INVO Bioscience from this offering are expected to be $11.6 million.
