NewCardio Announces Financial Results for Its 2011 Second Quarter
Date:8/15/2011

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NewCardio, Inc., (OTC BB: NWCI) a cardiac diagnostic technology provider, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011. More details on the financial results are available in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Highlights

  • QTinno® was selected by a top 5 global pharmaceutical company for two Phase I drug safety studies, both of which were initiated in the second quarter. The fully automated ECG analysis will be delivered by one of NewCardio's existing customers, the ECG core lab of a top 3 Clinical Research Organization, a CRO.
  • NewCardio presented the results of a recent QTinno performance study in April at a conference "Cardiovascular Safety in Drug Development: State-of-the-Art Assessments," sponsored by the FDA, the Cardiac Safety Research Consortium and the Heart Rhythm Society ("HRS").
  • NewCardio presented the results of a key study showing that our urgent care solution, my3KG™, had substantially greater accuracy than expert cardiologists' interpretation of standard 12-lead ECG (12L ECG) in diagnosing Acute Myocardial Infarction in diabetic patients at the 60th Annual American College of Cardiology Scientific Meeting in April 2011.
  • The Company presented the results of a recent clinical study showing at the HRS conference in May 2011 showing that recurrent atrial fibrillation (AF) was accurately and timely detected in patients who used CardioBip™ for daily monitoring following catheter ablation procedures. The presentation was titled "Long-term Intermittent Wireless Remote Monitoring of Reconstructed 12L ECG in Post-Ablation AF Patients Using the CardioBip System." The NewCardio study results showed that CardioBip detects recurrent AF earlier and more reliably than the current gold standard, which is periodic Holter monitoring.
  • Two of NewCardio's recent medical and technical submissions were accepted for presentations at the 33rd Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society conference to be held early September 2011 in Boston. The two papers were titled: 'Wireless Monitoring of Reconstructed 12L ECG in AF Patients Enables Differential Diagnosis of Recurrent Arrhythmias' and 'Algorithm for Quantitative 3-D Analysis of ECG Signals Improves Myocardial Diagnosis Over Cardiologists in Diabetic Patients'.

  • NewCardio generated ECG license and professional services revenue associated with the deployment of QTinno for use in the cardiac safety component of a drug development study, totaling $102,000 compared to $21,000 in the second quarter of last year, an increase of 386%. Net cash used in operating activities was $682,000 in the current quarter, which is a decrease of 54% from $1,492,000 in the second quarter last year. For the quarter, the Company reported a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $935,000, or $(0.03) per fully diluted share, compared to a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $1.5 million, or $(0.05) per fully diluted share, in the second quarter last year.

    The Company is continuing to explore potential strategic funding opportunities to provide capital and other resources for the further development and marketing of its 3-D platform technology solutions; however, there can be no assurance that such efforts will be successful.

    Vincent Renz, NewCardio's President and CEO commented, "Progress in the development and commercialization of our initial solutions remains steady, but sure, as we continue our strategic funding efforts in raising the capital required to accelerate the development of CardioBip and my3KG. QTinno continues to gain market adoption, as marked by our selection by Merck for use in two early phase QT trials, which we believe will continue as our partners continue to educate their drug development customers who continue to look for advanced science and technology which will enable them to receive quality results in a more timely and cost effective manner. In addition, we continue to bolster the reputation of CardioBip and my3KG in the industry through our current development and validation efforts, as evidenced by the presentations and the acceptance of papers, and believe this will ultimately lead to commercial success."

    Dr. Patrick Maguire, Chairman of the Board of Directors, added, "Since becoming Chairman in June 2011, I have been actively working with the management team and the Board on our strategic opportunities. I continue to believe in NewCardio and the opportunity to move forward our superior technology, which has the potential to successfully address significant clinical needs in cardiac safety, remote monitoring and arrhythmia detection. I look forward to being part of NewCardio's progress and success, bringing both my medical background as a cardiologist and business background as CEO of a VC-backed cardiology technology company to help the Company realize its potential."
