“During the first quarter, we began to deploy the capital from our December 2020 initial public offering to expand our sales and marketing initiatives and further introduce the benefits of the Vivos System treatment to members of the medical and dental communities. This includes the opening of our first Pneusomnia Center clinic in Del Mar, California, and the finalization of our licensing, marketing, and distribution agreement with SleepImage for our VivoScore diagnostic product for home sleep apnea testing in children and adults,” said Kirk Huntsman, Vivos Chairman and CEO.
Huntsman continued, “In line with our internal forecasts and our analysts’ estimates, our revenue recognition policies, the gradual post-pandemic re-opening of our economy, and the timing of our sales cycle, we did not expect to realize the full impact of our capital deployment and accelerated growth actions in the first quarter. However, as we moved through the first quarter, we were pleased by the strong and growing interest in our products and services throughout the dental community, which we anticipate has increased our VIP sales funnel. This momentum has continued throughout May to date, as many dentists reopen their offices, more Americans get vaccinated, and we all move forward from the disruptions of the COVID 19 pandemic. The second quarter has been off to a strong start with enrollments by new VIP dentists along with increased levels of daily Vivos System appliance sales. Demand for our new VivoScore diagnostic product and MyoCorrect therapy service, which will be further rolled out during the second quarter, have also exceeded our expectations, although any material impact on our overall revenue from those two products is not expected to be realized until the second half of 2021. As we continue to execute on our strategic plans, and with our balance sheet strengthened by our recent follow-on public offering, we believe we are well-positioned to continue our growth throughout 2021 and beyond.”
Further information on Vivos’ financial results is included on the attached condensed consolidated balance sheets and statements of operations, and additional explanations of Vivos’ financial performance are provided in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2021, which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The full 10-Q report will be available on the SEC Filings section of the Investor Relations section of Vivos’ website at https://vivoslife.com/investor-relations/.
In early 2020, Vivos officially launched its Medical Integration Division to foster an environment where more medical doctors could work directly with Vivos-trained dentists for treating sleep disorders in patients. In March 2021, Vivos (through its Medical Integration Division) opened the first Pneusomnia (pronounced “new somnia”) center, a clinician-owned, integrated medical-dental sleep center managed by Vivos and featuring the Vivos System. This first Pneusomnia center is located in Del Mar, Calif., and is owned and operated by a diverse group of local physicians led by Dr. Mimi Guarneri, cardiologist, founder and president of The Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine and an award-winning physician and researcher. In April, a second Pneusomnia center was opened in Modesto, California with a different set of physician-owners and a VIP dentist. The Company currently has active Pneusomnia center projects under development in Nevada, Colorado, California, and New Jersey.
Also in March, Vivos announced the launch of a new therapeutic service called MyoCorrect, where trained therapists will provide VIP dentists and their patients with access to OMT via telemedicine technology as a component to OSA treatment using the Vivos System. Vivos expects to see additional revenue from its new MyoCorrect service in the form of increased Vivos System case starts and direct therapeutic fees charged for the service. Vivos believes the MyoCorrect service will become an important value-added component as it is more fully integrated into the Vivos System across the VIP network. Vivos further believes that offering a scalable and cost-effective OMT service via telemedicine creates the potential to improve patient compliance, shorten overall treatment times, and further improve clinical outcomes, thus providing Vivos with a further competitive advantage in the marketplace.
In April 2021, Vivos appointed Mimi Guarneri, MD, FACC as an independent consultant serving in the role of Medical Director of Clinical Education. Dr. Guarneri is widely acclaimed as a leading Integrative Cardiologist in America. She is Board-certified in Cardiovascular Disease, Internal Medicine, Nuclear Cardiology, and Integrative Holistic Medicine. Dr. Guarneri is a Founder and President of The Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine. She serves on the Founding Board of the American Board Physician Specialties in Integrative Medicine and is a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of California, San Diego. An award-winning physician and researcher, she has been recognized for her national leadership in Integrative Medicine by the Bravewell Collaborative, and she served as chair of the Bravewell Clinical Network for Integrative Medicine. Dr. Guarneri was honored as the ARCS Scientist of the Year in 2009. A highly sought speaker, Dr. Guarneri presents both nationally and internationally and in 2017 presented at the Vatican on Health and the Climate. Dr. Guarneri has been interviewed on many nationally syndicated television shows including The Dr. Oz Show, NBC Today, and PBS Full Focus and To the Contrary. In addition to her responsibilities related to the Company’s first Pneusomnia Center, Dr. Guarneri duties for the Company will include the promotion and expansion of the Company’s Medical Integration Division.
On May 11, 2021, Vivos closed an underwritten follow-on public offering of 4,600,000 shares of its common stock. The offering consisted of 4,000,000 shares of its common stock, as well as an additional 600,000 shares pursuant to the exercise in full of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares of common stock, at a public offering price of $6.00 per share.
