Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 30, 2024) - NuGen Medical Devices Inc. (TSXV: NGMD) (the "Company" or "NuGen") a leading developer of needle-free devices to administer therapeutics subcutaneously, announces the release Q1 2024 Financial Results and is pleased to provide an update on the strong commercial progress made year to date.

Q1 Financials in Line with Management Expectations

Financial Results for the Q1 period were in line with management expectations. It was a period focused on fully preparing our newest distribution channel partners in some of the world's largest markets: Sol-Millenium ("Sol-M") in Canada, Europe, and Brazil and Science Link in Mexico. Coming off a year of restructuring in 2023, NuGen is pivoting to commercial development and management spent Q1 focused on fully activating our channel partners and preparing for the significant ramp-up of volume expected in 2024. Q1 results reflect continued progress in our smaller existing markets before fully activating promotional activity in the larger markets with Sol-M and Science Link in Q2.

Subsequent to Q1 2024, as announced on April 15, 2024, NuGen also improved its balance sheet by renegotiating its entire long-term debt. These liabilities will then be reclassified as long-term liabilities during our next quarter, improving the financial situation for the Company.

Veronique Laberge, CFO, commented: "With the restructuring completed, we are focusing our efforts on optimizing commercial sales while managing expenses. A stronger balance sheet along with our strategic commercialization efforts is the focus ahead."

Outlook for Q2 and 2024:

With veteran med-tech markets CEO Ian Heynen joining the company in November 2023, the management team has refocused on a number of key commercial priorities to drive both short-term and medium-term growth in InsuJetTM sales. These key priorities include continued patient awareness and demand generation, distribution partner sales expansion and execution, and an increasing focus on awareness and education in the Clinical community, with the goal of driving physician prescriptions for the InsuJetTM. The Company has made progress across all these priorities in Q1 2024 and expects further growth in the year ahead.

In Q1, NuGen's management focused on fully readying the Company's distribution & promotional partners for launch in their respective markets. Key activities included full clinical and sales training for the Sol-M and Science Link teams, development of the Sol-M branded product, and kick-off of strategic clinical support initiatives in Mexico. In each of these markets, we are seeing increasing traction, with positive market reaction and an acceleration in the order funnel for the Company.

In addition to the focus on commercial execution, NuGen has also expanded the coverage area with distribution partners appointed in Thailand, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, and Costa Rica. With the significant ramping of the orders pipeline, Mr. Heynen also visited the manufacturing sites where he confirmed the strong quality system and regulatory compliance culture that will underpin growth. To that end, NuGen's management has developed a scale-up plan that leverages our key outsourced manufacturing relationships with Gerresheimer and Freudenberg Medical, both multinationals serving the world's largest healthcare companies.

NuGen's CEO, Ian Heynen commented: "I joined the Company just over 6 months ago as NuGen was finishing up a restructuring effort. I came in as the first experienced medical technology CEO in NuGen's history and I have to say that I am thrilled at the opportunity that lies ahead for us. We have a technology that patients love and clinicians immediately value once introduced. We offer savings to the health system in avoiding the costs of drug therapy non-compliance and needle-related injuries and waste. We have the commercial partners to make this a success and we are developing excellent opportunities in new and existing markets."
