Wound Management Technologies President Writes Letter to Its Shareholders; Cites 3x Revenues Increase Over 2009; CellerateRX® Gaining Traction

FORT WORTH, Texas, April 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Wound Management Technologies, Inc., (OTCQB: WNDM | WNDM.PK) a leader in advanced wound care solutions, today released a letter from its president, Deborah Jenkins Hutchinson to update the shareholders on the current status of the company.

April 20, 2011

Dear Wound Management Technologies Shareholder,

I'm writing to inform you that our Company has entered an exciting new chapter in its development and to provide you with details on a number of initiatives that we believe will favorably impact our business in 2011.

When I joined Wound Management in January of 2010, my primary challenge was to develop a sales engine for our existing line of wound treatment products.  I am pleased to tell you that Wound Management Technologies' (WNDM) 2010 revenues were over three times 2009 revenues and that the commercialization plan that we initiated last year is gaining traction. Our CellerateRX® activated collagen wound care product line sales have increased both in the United States and international markets.  Furthermore, in January of this year we forecast $6M in revenues for 2011, an increase of over six times 2010, and we believe we will meet or exceed that number.  WNDM is now rapidly emerging and we believe that we will be both cash flow positive and profitable in the upcoming 12-18 months. You can find further details about our operational progress in the company's 2010 Form-10K filed on April 14, 2011.

One of our challenges in 2010 was to secure adequate financing for inventory to meet anticipated product order growth.  That process took a few months longer than we hoped, but we were able to raise the $2 - $3M that we discussed in last year’s letter in increments. We received inventory in the 4th Quarter and have ordered more since.  Those small financings and some business transactions have given us the ability to more aggressively market the CellerateRX® products.

CellerateRX® Activated Collagen™

CellerateRX® targets a multi-billion dollar domestic and international wound care market with over 60% profit margins. A large part of the growth in the wound care markets is from diabetic ulcers. The advanced wound care market is over $5B worldwide now and forecasts show that by 2025 just the Global Diabetic Market could have in excess of 48 million patients that could be a candidate for CellerateRX®.

CellerateRX®'s activated collagen (approximately 1/100th the size of native collagen) delivers the essential benefits of collagen to a wound immediately, where other forms of native, intact collagen in commercially available products require time for the body to prepare the collagen for use in the wound healing process.  In people with compromised health or circulation, the difference in wound healing can be significant. You can read through numerous evidence-based studies on the website.

CellerateRX® is FDA cleared for all wound types except for 3rd degree burns and is available in both powder and gel form. The products have HCPC codes for reimbursement by Medicare and other insurers.  In addition to being used in healthcare settings throughout the country, CellerateRX® is easily applied by patients by themselves at home.  CellerateRX® is safe, non-toxic, and easy to use. Wound Care Innovations, LLC (WCI), a wholly owned subsidiary of WNDM, has the exclusive worldwide licensing and distribution rights for CellerateRX® advanced wound care collagen products.

New Product Pipeline

While we have been commercializing the CellerateRX® business we have also been strategically planning the market launch of products in our pipeline from our Resorbable Orthopedic Products (ROP) subsidiary and our Secure eHealth subsidiary.  ROP plans to file 510ks for resorbable bone wax and bone void filler products in the next few weeks. Secure eHealth and its secure healthcare communications tools were featured in the Interoperability Showcase at the Health Information Systems Society meeting in February 2011 in Orlando.  Look for more about both of these on our website and in our news.

Here is a brief recap of some key items over the past year:

Sales & Marketing Initiatives

  • We created a channel map and identified major areas of sales opportunities from retail sales (since our products do not require a prescription), to hospital, health system, pharmacy, podiatry, surgeons, home care, wound care centers and international markets.  We have gained customers in all of those areas.
  • We hired a Sr. VP of Sales & Marketing and hired a small direct sales team to grow customer awareness and sales
  • Channel Partners: We announced a strategy to seek channel partners and major distributors. Just last week we announced a strategic channel partner, Juventas, who has certain exclusive rights to sell the CellerateRX® powder products in North America.  Juventas is an affiliate of Biomet Texas, Ltd., the largest Biomet Distributor. This multi-year agreement has escalating target sales with 2012's minimum sales of CellerateRX® powder set at $9 million in order for Juventas to retain such exclusive rights.
  • Distributors: McKesson Pharmaceutical joined the growing list of CellerateRX® distributors in 2010, as did regional wholesalers Central Medical Systems, and Omni Medical Products.
  • Major Healthcare Systems:  After an extensive formulary review, CellerateRX® was recently placed on formulary in a major national health care system. Look for upcoming news about this and other major healthcare system clients.
  • Government: By December 2010 we had 10 VHA hospitals using CellerateRX® and in December 2010 we engaged Government Marketing and Procurement to assist us with procuring more VA hospitals and getting on their GSA schedule.
  • Retail (TV/Internet): In 2010 we signed a distribution agreement with MED3TV for them to market CellerateRX® 28g gel via TV spots.  March 2011 the TV spot campaigns began to air and sales are escalating. You can preview the campaign on their website:   In March 2011, Riptide Software began marketing a trial size 6g gel tube of CellerateRX® via the Internet, mainly targeting first aid care.  You can view their campaign at   Market awareness: In addition to sales, these programs are making more and more patients and providers aware of CellerateRX® and its unique capabilities.
  • International:  After two plus years of work, in 2010, CellerateRX® received government approvals and reimbursement codes for sales in South Africa and sales are steadily building.  Other distribution began in The Bahamas and Central America. The CE mark for European distribution is closer to completion and our Italian distribution partner is poised to begin marketing.  Contract negotiations are underway in many other countries as well.
  • PharmaTech International Joint Venture:  Our joint venture for sales within the Middle East stalled last year after an initial sale in Lebanon in February 2010. On April 7, 2011 we announced a new sale to Lebanon with more to quickly follow both there and throughout the region. PharmaTech International has been working diligently in the region to gain necessary government and health system approvals. Keep an eye out for more news in the upcoming weeks
