D. Medical Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2010 Financial Results

TIRAT CARMEL, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - March 9, 2011) - D. Medical Industries Ltd. (NASDAQ:DMED)(TASE:DMED) ("D. Medical" or the "Company"), a medical device company engaged through its subsidiaries in the research, development, manufacture and sale of innovative products for diabetes treatment and drug delivery, today announced financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2010. Results were characterized by the Company's ongoing preparations for the commercial launch of its products later in 2011.

Fourth Quarter Highlights:

  • In December 2010, D. Medical announced the appointment of U.S. diabetes industry veteran, Zoe H. Myers, as the Company's Chief Commercial Officer, effective February 1, 2011. Ms. Myers' responsibilities include leading global commercial strategy and U.S. operations for D. Medical.
  • In October 2010, D. Medical announced the execution of an agreement with Pharmaserve-Lilly S.A.C.I. for the distribution of the Company's ADI durable insulin pump, related consumables and its Universal Detach Detect Infusion Sets in Greece.

Financial Results:

The unaudited selected consolidated financial results presented below were prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). A convenience U.S. dollar translation of NIS amounts is provided using the rate of NIS 3.549 to US$1.00, the representative rate of exchange as of December 31, 2010 as published by the Bank of Israel.

Sales for three and twelve months ended December 31, 2010 were nil and NIS 1,264 thousand (US$ 356 thousand), respectively. As was the case in Q3-2010, the Company does not believe that fourth quarter sales met its revenue recognition criteria. Therefore, it has resolved not to recognize these sales as revenues at this time. D. Medical commenced sales and marketing operations in late 2009. Sales for both the 2009 fourth quarter and full year totaled NIS 368 thousand (US$ 104 thousand).

Cost of sales for three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2010 were NIS 3,443 thousand (US$ 970 thousand) and NIS 8,316 thousand (US$ 2,343 thousand), respectively. D. Medical had no cost of sales until the fourth quarter of 2009. For that period, they totaled NIS 657 thousand (US$ 185 thousand).

R&D expenses for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2010 were NIS 6,057 thousand (US$ 1,707 thousand) and NIS 14,100 thousand (US$ 3,973 thousand), respectively. This compares to R&D expenses of NIS 3,010 thousand (US$ 848 thousand) and NIS 13,193 thousand (US$ 3,717 thousand) for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2009, respectively. The increase in the fourth quarter of 2010 was due to the preparation for commercialization of the Company's Spring Hybrid Patch pump.

Selling and marketing expenses for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2010 were NIS 1,322 thousand (US$ 372 thousand) and NIS 3,731 thousand (US$ 1,051 thousand), respectively. Selling and marketing expenses for both the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2009 were NIS 698 thousand (US$ 197 thousand). The increase in the fourth quarter of 2010 was due to the efforts invested in introducing the Company's products.

General and administrative expenses for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2010 were NIS 3,373 thousand (US$ 950 thousand) and NIS 11,365 thousand (US$ 3,202 thousand), respectively. General and administrative expenses for the same periods in 2009 were NIS 1,948 thousand (US$ 549 thousand) and NIS 5,563 thousand (US$ 1,567 thousand), respectively. The increase in the 2010 fourth quarter was primarily due to the Company's shares being co-listed for trading on NASDAQ in addition to TASE. 

D. Medical's attributed comprehensive losses for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2010 were NIS 14,746 thousand (US$ 4,154 thousand) or NIS 1.90 (U.S. $0.53) per share and NIS 45,894 thousand (US$ 12,931 thousand) or NIS 6.60 (US$ 1.86) per share, respectively. The Company noted that its 2010 full year loss reflects registration costs of NIS 6,049 thousand (US$ 1,704 thousand) and fair value losses on warrants at fair value through profit or loss of NIS 2,469 thousand (US$ 696 thousand) as a component of financial costs, all of which were incurred during the first nine months of the year. D. Medical's attributed losses for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2009 were NIS 2,291 thousand (US$ 646 thousand), or NIS 0.45 (US$ 0.13) per share, and NIS 19,015 thousand (US$ 5,358 thousand), or NIS 3.89 (US$ 1.09) per share, respectively.

As at December 31, 2010, D. Medical had cash and cash equivalents of NIS 35,293 thousand (US$ 9,944 thousand). This compares to NIS 24,388 thousand (US$ 6,872 thousand) as at December 31, 2009. The increase is mainly attributable to proceeds from D. Medical's U.S. initial public offering and from the exercise of warrants, affected during the first quarter of 2010, partially offset by cash used in operating activities during 2010.

"We went into 2011 confident that our focus on moving towards mass production, allowing us to further reduce our cost of sales and, thereby, to more fully capitalize on the cost-effectiveness of our unique spring-based design, would help us make the important transition from an R&D company into a commercially viable enterprise. Now, the success of that focus has left us well positioned to successfully launch our diabetes treatment and drug delivery products into our five initial target markets - Mexico and the BRIC countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China - commencing later this year," commented Efri Argaman, D. Medical's Chief Executive Officer.

Events Subsequent to Year-End:

  • In January 2011, the Company announced the successful bid by its Swedish distributor for the marketing and sales of D. Medical's Universal Detach Detect Infusion Sets in Sweden. The bid was won in the region of Vastra Gotaland, which constitutes approximately 25% of the entire Swedish market. The distribution of D. Medical's Universal Detach Detect Infusion Sets in this region is expected to generate more than US$ 2 Million in product sales over the next three years.
  • In February 2011, the Company announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Spring-Set Health Solutions Ltd., has achieved ISO 13485:2003 and ISO 9001:2008 certifications. Spring-Set designs and markets the Company's Universal Detach Detect Infusion Sets.
  • The Company's groundbreaking new "Spring Hybrid Patch" insulin pump solution was introduced via a presentation at the Fourth International Conference on Advanced Technologies and Treatments for Diabetes which took place in London, UK in February 2011.
