ATLANTA, Nov. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Femasys Inc. (NASDAQ: FEMY), a biomedical company aiming to meet women's needs worldwide by developing a suite of product candidates that include minimally invasive, in-office technologies for reproductive health, today announced financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and provided a corporate update on the Company’s business and clinical programs.

“Since becoming public approximately five months ago, we’ve gained substantial traction for our product candidates that have the opportunity to provide women access to superior technologies and revolutionize their options related to reproductive care,” stated Kathy Lee-Sepsick, president, chief executive officer and founder of Femasys. “Our pipeline progress has been driven by the advancement of FemaSeed, our novel product candidate that delivers sperm directly to a selected fallopian tube where conception occurs, with enrollment progressing for our LOCAL trial that commenced in July, enrolling qualified women seeking conception at centers across the U.S. with additional centers being added.”

Ms. Lee-Sepsick, further commented, “We are now gearing up for the pivotal trial planned for next year associated with our planned IDE submission for FemBloc®, our permanent birth control product candidate. We are eager to address the existing limitations of infertility and birth control options– both vast and underserved markets within women’s reproductive health worldwide – with non-surgical solutions that are driven by safety and affordability.”

Recent Corporate Developments

  • On September 20, 2021, Femasys announced that the Company was added to the Russell Microcap® Index. The Russell Microcap Index is widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies. Approximately $10.6 trillion in assets are benchmarked against Russell's US indexes. Russell indexes are part of FTSE Russell, a leading global index provider.
  • On September 1, 2021, Femasys announced the appointment of Edward G. Evantash, M.D., as chief medical officer. Dr. Evantash brings over two decades of industry experience in medical and clinical affairs to Femasys, having previously served as chief medical officer of Alydia Health and vice president of medical affairs at Hologic, Inc., both medical technology companies focused on women’s healthcare. He will be responsible for providing leadership and direction for Femasys’ pipeline of clinical development programs.

Q3 Developments Related to Clinical Programs

  • On July 20, 2021, Femasys announced the initiation of and first patient treated with FemaSeed in the LOCAL trial. The trial is being conducted across centers in the United States and is expected to enroll up to 792 patients who are diagnosed as infertile. The primary endpoints of the study are to determine the effectiveness (clinical pregnancy rate) and safety over a period of 7 weeks. Enrollment in this trial is ongoing.

Third Quarter (Three-Months) 2021 Financial Results:

  • Research and Development expenses increased by $144,957, or 14.6%, to $1,140,577 for the third quarter of 2021 compared the third quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily due to an increase in research and development project spending and consulting costs to support the company’s clinical trials.
  • General and Administrative expenses increased by $490,585, or 82.2%, to $1,087,363 for the third quarter of 2021 compared to the third quarter of 2020. The increase was largely due to an increase of $309,749 in professional costs associated with being a public company.
  • Sales of the Company’s FemVue® product, decreased by $43,627, or 13.9%, to $269,581 from $313,208 for the third quarter of 2021. The sales decrease was attributable to a 19.9% decline in units sold, largely due to a rebound of sales in the third quarter of 2020 from the heavily impacted second quarter of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. International sales were $58,045 for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020.
  • Primarily reflecting the factors noted above, net loss was $(2,259,701), or $(0.19) per basic and diluted share attributable to common stockholders, for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $(1,568,295), or $(1.64) per basic and diluted share attributable to common stockholders, for the third quarter of 2020.
  • The cash and cash equivalents balance as of September 30, 2021 was $27,280,309. The Company expects, based on its current operating plan, that its existing cash and cash equivalents will be sufficient to fund its operations at least through 2022.

Year to Date 2021 (Nine-Months) Financial Results:

  • Research and Development expenses decreased by $204,555, or 6.3%, to $3,030,467 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease was primarily due to the decrease of $161,555 in compensation and related personnel costs due to the reduction in staff in March 2020 and a decrease in clinical-related trial costs and material and development costs due to deferring certain R&D projects in the first half of 2021 to preserve cash, which was partially offset by an increase in other costs related to support of our clinical trials.
  • General and Administrative expenses increased by $1,240,154, or 69.3%, to $3,030,749 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase was largely due to an increase of $1,050,483 in professional costs largely associated with our financing transactions and additional costs associated with being a public company.
  • Sales of the Company’s FemVue® product increased by $168,408, or 22.2%, to $925,362 from $756,954 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase was attributable to a $112,613 increase in U.S. sales and a $55,795 increase in international sales. The increase in sales was largely attributable to the decrease in sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, primarily due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Primarily reflecting the factors noted above, net loss decreased to $(5,172,992), or $(1.04) per basic and diluted share attributable to common stockholders, for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to a net loss of $(5,255,473), or $(5.50) per basic and diluted share attributable to common stockholders, for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.
