Business Update Highlights

"Lucid's sustained commercial success and Veris's future commercial execution will be the primary drivers of PAVmed's long-term success," said Lishan Aklog, M.D., PAVmed's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "As noted in yesterday's Lucid business update, Q3 was the most important quarter in Lucid's, and therefore PAVmed's, history, as we have now begun to translate increasing commercial activity into revenue and revenue growth. Whether it be commercial execution, revenue cycle management, laboratory operations, or clinical research productivity, Lucid is firing on all cylinders. As we have done with Lucid, we are now laying the foundation for Veris's future commercial success. This includes upgrading the Veris Cancer Care Platform to incorporate early adopter feedback; restructuring and expanding the commercial infrastructure; engaging with large academic cancer centers; and initiating dialogue with large pharma companies to have our platform serve as a digital companion to novel cancer therapeutics undergoing market surveillance."

Highlights from the third quarter and recent weeks include:

  • Yesterday, Lucid Diagnostics reported that quarterly EsoGuard testing volumes increased 17 percent sequentially from 2Q23 and 137 percent annually from 3Q22.
  • Lucid's upgraded revenue cycle management infrastructure showed sustained impact, driving $783K in quarterly revenue, representing a 392 percent increase sequentially from 2Q23 and a 930 percent annual increase from 3Q22.
  • Lucid substantially increased its clinical utility data portfolio to support in-network payor coverage engagement, with near-perfect clinical utility data (98-100 percent concordance) from three studies.
  • Lucid launched EsoGuard 2.0, the next generation of the EsoGuard Esophageal DNA test, which enhances performance and lowers per-sample costs.
  • Veris restructured its commercial organization, including two new hires, with expansion efforts now underway aiming to accelerate patient enrollment at small-to-medium sized oncology practices and to secure strategic accounts, such as large academic cancer centers.
  • Veris advanced development of the next-generation Veris Cancer Care Platform incorporating feedback from early adopters, including key enhancements for practice workflow and provider billing, with version 2.0 launching during 4Q23.
  • Veris is in active discussions with several pharma companies to incorporate the platform as a digital companion for novel cancer therapeutics. The biopharma module will facilitate market surveillance to allow these drugs to become first- or second-line treatment options.
  • Veris is working to upgrade the platform from an FDA-designated Medical Device Data System ("MDDS"), to a Software-as-a-Medical-Device ("SaMD"), with the goal of an FDA 510(k) submission next year. The upgraded platform will provide unlimited potential to grow into a clinical decision support tool that includes threshold alarms for faster provider response, analytical algorithms for effective triage, and digital biomarkers based on artificial intelligence and machine learning that will provide a risk assessment for cancer patients.
  • Veris remains on track for a 2024 regulatory submission of its implantable cardiac and physiologic monitor, designed to be implanted in conjunction with a vascular access port. The team has held multiple, successful FDA pre-submission meetings on various design features.

PAVmed Non-GAAP Measures

  • To supplement our unaudited financial results presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), management provides certain non-GAAP financial measures of the Company's financial results. These non-GAAP financial measures include net loss before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) and non-GAAP adjusted loss, which further adjusts EBITDA for stock-based compensation expense, loss on the issuance or modification of convertible securities, the periodic change in fair value of convertible securities, and loss on debt extinguishment. The foregoing non-GAAP financial measures of EBITDA and non-GAAP adjusted loss are not recognized terms under U.S. GAAP.
  • Non-GAAP financial measures are presented with the intent of providing greater transparency to the information used by us in our financial performance analysis and operational decision-making. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful information to assist investors, shareholders, and other readers of our unaudited financial statements in making comparisons to our historical financial results and analyzing the underlying performance of our results of operations. These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be, and should not be, a substitute for, considered superior to, considered separately from, or as an alternative to, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
  • Non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance readers' overall understanding of our current financial results and to provide further information for comparative purposes. Management believes the non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to management and investors by isolating certain expenses, gains, and losses that may not be indicative of our core operating results and business outlook. Specifically, the non-GAAP financial measures include non-GAAP adjusted loss, and its presentation is intended to help the reader understand the effect of the loss on the issuance or modification of convertible securities, the periodic change in fair value of convertible securities, the loss on debt extinguishment and the corresponding accounting for non-cash charges on financial performance. In addition, management believes non-GAAP financial measures enhance the comparability of results against prior periods.
  • A reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP measure of all non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, and 2022 are as follows:
