VANCOUVER , Nov. 14, 2018 /CNW/ - Neovasc, Inc. ("Neovasc" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: NVCN TSX: NVCN), a leader in the development of minimally invasive transcatheter mitral valve replacement technologies and in the development of minimally invasive devices for the treatment of refractory angina, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018 .

"In the first nine months of 2018, we successfully managed several critical corporate events and achieved many significant therapy development milestones for both of our product platforms. As a result, the Company is now on a stronger foundation from which to continue advancing our product development, clinical and commercial programs for the Reducer and Tiara," said Fred Colen , President and Chief Executive Officer of Neovasc. "While there are still challenges to overcome, we have developed a clear value creation strategy for the Company's patients, employees, and investors alike.  This will be achieved through our team's proven ability to deliver on the well-defined critical future milestones we have established for our two product platforms, the Tiara and the Reducer."

Mr. Colen continued, "The Tiara clinical outcome data, which we have been regularly reporting on, is increasingly generating positive attention as a leading option for minimally invasive mitral valve replacement for patients suffering from severe mitral regurgitation. This growing collection of robust clinical data also includes the publication of a peer-reviewed article in the Cardiovascular Interventions journal, a live case demonstration at the 32nd Annual European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery meeting, and presentations of new clinical data at several scientific conferences. We believe that our ongoing efforts to build awareness of the Tiara and its benefits for patients with severe mitral regurgitation in the clinical community will help drive increased enrollment for our TIARA-II study in Europe ."

"Positive momentum for the therapy development and commercialization activities of the Reducer in Europe continues to build, with sales in the third quarter of 2018 increasing by 44% year-over-year and increasing by 45% for the first nine months of 2018 over the same period in 2017. The Company has launched a couple of pilot programs in Germany for the required Reducer therapy development with referring physicians together with a professional therapy development organization, to quickly learn more about these therapy development challenges and opportunities," concluded Mr. Colen.

The Tiara Mitral Valve

To date, 63 patients have been treated with Tiara in the TIARA‑I early feasibility clinical study, in compassionate use cases and in our European TIARA‑II CE Mark clinical study ("TIARA-II"). The 30‑day survival rate for the 63 patients treated with the Tiara (i.e. those treated more than 30 days ago) is 53/59 or 90% with one patient now over four years post implant and five patients over two years post implant. The Tiara has been successfully implanted in both functional and degenerative mitral regurgitation patients, as well as in patients with pre‑existing prosthetic aortic valves and mitral surgical annuloplasty rings.

To date, 22 patients have been treated under compassionate use, 21 patients in the TIARA-I clinical study and 20 patients in the TIARA-II clinical study. The 30 day survival rate for patients who reached the 30 day time point, is 90% overall and is 94% in the TIARA II study. On October 20th , the Tiara was featured in a "live case" at the 32nd Annual European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery Meeting in Milan . The successful procedure was performed by Dr. Lenard Conradi and Dr. Ulrich Schaefer of University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf in Hamburg, Germany and then broadcasted to a large audience at the conference. In approximately 14 minutes, for the delivery system/heart interaction, the doctors were able to implant the Tiara device and completely resolve the patient's severe mitral regurgitation, without any procedural complications.

The November issue of Cardiovascular Interventions included a peer-reviewed article reporting on cases of transcatheter mitral valve replacement using the Tiara valve in patients with previous aortic valve replacement. These patients were considered extremely high-risk due to their severe mitral regurgitation and previous surgical aortic valve prosthesis, but the article describes great short-term outcomes. The surgery had a success rate of 100% with no death or major complications and, immediately following implantation, the patients' mitral regurgitation was eliminated. This publication supports Tiara as a technically feasible and safe option for these high-risk patients. In addition, the editor of the Journal stated in editorial comments, that: "The investigators, are taking the field of TMVR to the next level where both prosthetic aortic valves and transcatheter mitral prosthesis coexist, and should be congratulated for their contribution."

Enrollment of patients in the European TIARA-II clinical study continues. All factors influencing enrollment have been reviewed and as a result the Company implemented an easy-to-use, local pre-screening tool for physicians and clinical sites, increased the number of fully qualified proctoring physicians, now with two fully qualified European physicians as proctors available, and the Company increased its field clinical engineering support in Europe , most recently adding two very experienced field clinical/market development personnel in Germany .

Most importantly, the Company keeps working with its currently qualified clinical sites and adding new clinical sites and we are pleased to see much interest from new potential clinical sites. Neovasc currently has 13 active and qualified TIARA-II clinical study sites and five more in the qualification/approval phase. Furthermore, the Company is currently reviewing up to three additional clinical sites for the qualification initiation process, in order to bring the total amount of clinical sites in the TIARA-II study to 20 sites, which is the maximum approved number of sites overall. As a result of all of these actions, the Company believes it will be able to increase enrollment in the TIARA-II clinical study.

Concept development activities for the transfemoral, trans-septal Tiara version also continued with steady progress on the Tiara valve modifications, enabling a smaller profile delivery system and treatment of a larger patient population with severe mitral valve regurgitation. Trans-septal delivery system design concept trade-off engineering work also continued. Neovasc is planning to finalize the trans-septal Tiara system design concept during the first quarter of 2019.

The Reducer
The Company is encouraged by the ramping of market interest in the Reducer. In May 2018 , at the Euro PCR Conference in Paris , the Reducer was showcased during a dedicated symposium hosted by Dr. Stefan Verheye and Dr. Shmuel Banai . The symposium included presentations from physicians on their clinical experience with Reducer, discussions about potential additional applications for Reducer, and a cost/benefit analysis of Reducer utilizations for healthcare systems.

The commercial progress for the Reducer in Europe and the Middle East in the first nine months of 2018 was encouraging with a 45% increase in revenue compared to the same time period of 2017. More than 20 clinics in Germany have completed the reimbursement negotiations with the German health insurance companies and have now established a satisfactory overall reimbursement amount for the Reducer procedure, while others are either in the negotiation process or will negotiate later this year, per pre-set negotiation cycles. One of the drivers behind this success is the NUB 1 status for new therapies in Germany , which the Reducer received at the end of January 2018 .

In October 2018 , the Company announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (the "FDA") has granted "Breakthrough Device Designation" for the Reducer.  The FDA grants this designation in order to expedite the development and review of a device that demonstrates compelling potential to provide a more effective treatment or diagnosis for life-threatening or irreversibly debilitating diseases. The Company is working closely with FDA through this process.

In July 2018 , the Company announced that the first U.S. patient has been implanted with a Reducer for the treatment of refractory angina. The Compassionate Use case was conducted by Dr. Gerald Koenig , along with Dr. Ryan Gindi and colleagues, of the Division of Cardiology at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan . The Company recently announced that the patient was no longer experiencing the very debilitating symptoms of severe refractory angina, as reported by the physicians at the 12-week follow-up appointment.

Results for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017

Revenues
Revenues decreased 65% to $480,540 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 , compared to revenues of $1,374,893 for the same period in 2017. In December 2017 , the Company closed its contract manufacturing and consulting services business and is now focused on the commercialization of its own product, the Reducer.

Sales of the Reducer for the three months ended September 30, 2018 were $480,540 compared to $334,208 for the same period in 2017, representing an increase of 44%. The Company is encouraged by the progress this year, but recognizes that future revenues may be unstable before the Reducer becomes widely adopted. The continued success of the commercialization of the Reducer will be dependent on the amount of internal resources allocated to the product, obtaining appropriate reimbursement codes in various territories and correctly managing the referrals process.

Cost of Goods Sold
The cost of goods sold for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was $96,743 compared to $659,686 for the same period in 2017. The overall gross margin for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was 80%, compared to 52% gross margin for the same period in 2017.  The gross margin now reflects the gross margin on the Reducer product only, whereas the comparable period included contract manufacturing and consulting services.

Expenses
Total expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2018 were $8,654,600 , compared to $6,540,734 for the same period in 2017, representing an increase of $2,113,866 or 32%.  The increase in total expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period in 2017 can be substantially explained by a $3,096,655 increase in general and administrative expenses due to a $1,406,822 increase in stock based compensation, as incentive grants were made during the third quarter of 2018 and a $1,000,000 charge for collaboration and settlement expenses (see "Contingencies" in the Management's Discussion and Analysis for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 ) offset by a $931,945 decrease in product development and clinical trial expenses as we continue to preserve cash resources.

Selling expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2018 were $202,947 , compared to $253,791 for the same period in 2017, representing a decrease of $50,844 , or 20%. The decrease in selling expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period in 2017 reflects a decrease in costs incurred for commercialization activities related to the Reducer as we have reduced our attendance at conferences during the quarter.  The Company continues to minimize its selling expenses as the cash resources of the Company are still limited.

General and administrative expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2018 were $4,960,957 , compared to $1,864,302 for the same period in 2017, representing an increase of $3,096,655 or 166%.  The increase in general and administrative expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period in 2017 can be substantially explained by a $1,406,822 increase in share-based payments (as the option awards in 2018 were higher in quantity and value than in 2017), a $1,000,000 increase in collaboration and settlement expenses, and a $892,535 increase in other expense offset by a $471,993 decrease in litigation expenses (as there are fewer ongoing litigation matters).

Product development and clinical trial expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2018 were $3,490,696 compared to $4,422,641 for the same period in 2017, representing a decrease of $931,945 or 21%. The decrease in product development and clinical trial expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was the result of a $294,331 decrease in employee expenses due to restructuring of the Company and a $481,747 decrease in other expenses, as the Company continues to control costs.

The Company's expenses are subject to inflation and cost increases.  The Company has not seen a material increase in the price of any of the components used in the manufacture of its products and services.

Other Income and Loss
The other loss for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was $4,932,151 compared to other income of $1,473,493 for the same period in 2017, an adverse change of $6,405,644 .  The increase in the other loss can be substantially explained by the accounting treatment of the 2017 Financings (as defined below) resulting in charges of $5,026,218 in the quarter and a $1,550,719 net reduction in foreign exchange gains received in the same quarter last year.

Losses
The operating losses and comprehensive losses for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 were $118,283,093 and $118,515,403 respectively, or $10.46 basic and diluted loss per share, as compared with losses of $17,882,255 and $19,832,651 , respectively, or $22.68 basic and diluted loss per share, for the same period in 2017.

The $98,682,752 increase in the comprehensive loss incurred for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period in 2017 can be substantially explained by the accounting treatment of the 2017 Financings (as defined below) resulting in charges of $97,599,557 and a $2,277,278 increase in general and administrative expenses (including a $754,640 increase in stock based compensation, as incentive grants were made during the third quarter of 2018 and a $1,000,000 charge for collaboration and settlement expenses).

Discussion of Liquidity and Capital Resources
Neovasc finances its operations and capital expenditures with cash generated from operations and through equity and debt financings.  As at September 30, 2018 the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $14,487,483 compared to cash and cash equivalents of $17,507,157 as at December 31 , 2017.  The Company will require significant additional financing in order to continue to operate its business.  Given the current nature of the Company's capital structure, there can be no assurance that such financing will be available on favorable terms, or at all.

The Company is in a positive working capital position of $12,259,606 , with current assets of $15,972,965 and current liabilities of $3,713,359 .  However, of the current liabilities, only $2,739,433 are cash liabilities, the liability for the convertible Notes and the derivative liability from the 2017 Financings are accounting entries to account for the value of the instruments issued in the 2017 Financings (as defined below).  The Company will require additional working capital in order to continue to operate its business and there can be no assurance that such additional working capital will be available on favorable terms, or at all.

Cash used in operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 , was $16,822,109 , compared to $14,242,747 for the same period in 2017.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2018 , operating expenses were $17,729,515 , compared to $14,627,842 for the same period in 2017, an increase of $3,101,673 that can be explained by a $1,000,000 charge for collaboration and settlement expenses in 2018 (see 'Contingencies' in the Management's Discussion and Analysis for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 ) and a $867,402 reduction in gross profit as the Company ended its contract manufacturing and consulting services at the end of 2017.  Net cash provided from the net change in non-cash working capital items for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $938,010 , compared to a net cash outflow of $462,544 in the same period in 2017.  The increase in net cash inflow can be attributed to a change in the balance sheet structure as the Company closed its consulting services and contract manufacturing businesses.

Net cash received from investing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $715,848 compared to net cash applied to investing activities of $767,372 for the same period in 2017, primarily due to the receipt of proceeds from the sale of assets of $865,610 , and a $282,214 decrease in purchase of property, plant and equipment, as there is still a requirement to preserve cash resources in 2018.

Outstanding Share Data
As at November 12, 2018 , the Company had 24,978,892 common voting shares issued and outstanding. Further, the following securities are convertible into Common Shares: 2,801,137 stock options with a weighted average price of $2.10 , 58,381,846 warrants and $17,510,000 principal amount of Notes, which could convert into 7,663,953 Common Shares (not taking into account the alternate conversion price mechanism). Our fully diluted share capital as of the same date is 34,546,872. Our fully diluted share capital, adjusted on the assumption that all the issuable Series B Warrants are exercised using the cashless alternative net number mechanism and the outstanding Notes are exercised using the alternate conversion price at the closing price on November 12, 2018 is 37,717,535.
