Recent Operational Highlights

  • Regained full U.S. commercialization rights to sell its INVOcell® solution directly into existing in vitro fertilization (IVF) clinics, to expand the number of U.S. INVO Centers free of any limitations, and to pursue its market expansion strategy focused on increasing access to care and democratizing fertility care for the underserved patient population.
  • Opened three INVO Center’s in 2021, including Birmingham, Alabama, Atlanta, Georgia, and Monterrey, Mexico with another clinic scheduled to open in the San Francisco area. The Company recently identified Tampa, Florida as the location of the next INVO Center.
  • Entered into an agreement with Ovo in Spain to expand INVOcell® commercialization in all four of their Ovoclinics, establish a European center of excellence and training site for INVOcell® and the IVC procedure, and leverage Ovobank’s fertility clinic relationships across Europe.
  • Completed the acquisition of a Canadian-based entity, originally formed to offer INVOcell®, to advance distribution efforts in Canada, where the product is already approved by Health Canada and cleared for importing.
  • Obtained regulatory approval to commercialize INVOcell® in Thailand and Nigeria.
  • Presented four poster abstracts discussing INVOcell® at the 77th Scientific Congress & Expo of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine held in Baltimore, Maryland in October 2021.
  • Revenue was $4.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, including $2.9 million due to the accelerated recognition of deferred revenue from the Ferring license, and compared to $1.0 million for the previous year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for 2021 was $(2.8) million, which included a $0.7 million loss attributable to the Company’s joint ventures, compared to $(3.7) million in the prior year (see Adjusted EBITDA Table).

Management Commentary

“2021 was an exciting year for INVO as we opened our first INVO Center clinics,” commented Steve Shum, CEO of INVO. “Our INVO Center model represents a strategy aimed at expanding adoption of INVOcell® and allowing us to capture a significantly larger percentage of the per-cycle IVC procedure revenue it enables. The INVO Centers are designed to offer attractive economics for our shareholders, medical practitioner partners and patients, and we believe are key to our efforts to address the fertility industry’s biggest challenges of cost and capacity. In addition to our announced plans to open additional centers in the San Francisco Bay Area and Tampa, Florida, we are evaluating over 20 additional US locations which represent attractive opportunities to open new INVO Centers. We also are in discussions for similar ventures across the globe. On the distribution side of our business, during the first quarter of 2022, we began selling directly to existing IVF fertility clinics in the U.S., after regaining full domestic commercialization rights to the INVOcell® upon termination of our prior agreements with Ferring. We are also seeing increased distribution activity from some of our partners in Europe and Africa.”

“We are enthusiastic about our multi-channel strategy of supporting, servicing, and expanding across existing IVF clinic networks and building new, dedicated INVO Centers,” Shum continued. “We expect this strategy to drive increased market awareness and utilization of our revolutionary technology, and provide an affordable and equally effective fertility treatment alternative to the large, underserved patient population.”

Financial Results

Revenue for 2021 was $4.2 million, compared to $1.0 million in 2020. Of the $4.2 million in revenue for 2021, $2.9 million was due to the accelerated recognition of deferred revenue related to the early termination of the U.S. distribution agreement with Ferring.

Gross margin in 2021 was 97% compared to approximately 91% in 2020.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020 were $9.0 million and $6.1 million, respectively, of which $2.7 million and $1.8 million, respectively, was for non-cash, stock-based compensation expense. The increase of approximately $2.9 million, or 49%, in selling general and administrative expenses was primarily the result of approximately $0.9 million in increased non-cash, stock-based compensation, approximately $0.7 million in increased personnel expenses, approximately $0.5 million in increased expenses related to the operations of the consolidated Atlanta JV and approximately $0.4 million in legal and startup costs related to new and potential INVO Centers.

We began funding additional research and development (“R&D”) efforts in 2020 as part of our 5-day FDA label expansion efforts. R&D expenses for the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020 were $0.2 million and $0.4 million, respectively.

Loss from equity investments for the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, was $0.3 million and $0, respectively. The increase in loss is due to the investment in the Alabama JV becoming operational in the third quarter of 2021. The clinic was only open for part of the period and was still in the early ramp up phase.

Interest expense and financing fees for the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020 were $1.3 million and $2.8 million, respectively. The decrease of approximately $1.5 million, or approximately 55%, was primarily due to a decrease in amortization of discount, debt issuance cost and interest on the 2020 convertible notes.

Adjusted EBITDA (see Adjusted EBITDA Table) for the year ended December 31, 2021, was $(2.8) million, which included a $0.7 million loss attributable to our joint ventures, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $(3.7) million for the year ended December 31, 2020.

As of December 31, 2021, the Company had approximately $5.7 million in cash.

Use of Non-GAAP Measure

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure. This measure is not intended to be a substitute for those financial measures reported in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA has been included because management believes that, when considered together with the GAAP figures, it provides meaningful information related to our operating performance and liquidity and can enhance an overall understanding of financial results and trends. Adjusted EBITDA may be calculated by us differently than other companies that disclose measures with the same or similar terms. See our attached financials for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to the nearest GAAP measure.

About INVO Bioscience

We are a commercial-stage fertility company dedicated to expanding the assisted reproductive technology (“ART”) marketplace by making fertility care accessible and inclusive to people around the world. Our flagship product is INVOcell®, a revolutionary medical device that allows fertilization and early embryo development to take place in vivo within the woman’s body. Our primary mission is to implement new medical technologies aimed at increasing the availability of affordable, high-quality, patient-centered fertility care. This treatment solution is the world’s first intravaginal culture technique for the incubation of oocytes and sperm during fertilization and early embryo development. This technique, designated as “IVC”, provides patients a more natural, intimate, and more affordable experience in comparison to other ART treatments. The IVC procedure can deliver comparable results at a fraction of the cost of traditional in vitro fertilization (“IVF”) and is a significantly more effective treatment than intrauterine insemination (“IUI”). Our commercialization strategy is focused on the opening of dedicated “INVO Centers” offering the INVOcell® and IVC procedure (with three centers in North America now operational), in addition to continuing to sell our technology solution into existing fertility clinics.
