Financial Results:

Total revenues for the three-month period ended March 31, 2022 amounted to $237,000, a decrease of 17%, compared to $286,000 for the three-month period ended March 31, 2021. The change is mainly attributable to a decrease in product revenues of $160,000, partially offset by increases in Research and Development (“R&D”) revenues of $99,000 and royalties of $12,000.

Operating costs and expenses were $2.6 million for the first quarter of 2022, versus $2.2 million for the corresponding three-month period of 2021. The increase for the three-month period ended March 31, 2022 is mainly attributable to increases of $327,000 in R&D expense, $155,000 in selling, general and administrative expenses, and $3,000 in depreciation of tangible assets, offset partially by a $151,000 decrease in manufacturing expenses.

For the first quarter of 2022, the Company had an operating loss of $2.3 million, compared to an operating loss of $1.9 million for the comparable period of 2021.

Net comprehensive loss for the three-month period ended March 31, 2022 was $3.0 million, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, compared to net comprehensive loss of $2.3 million, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, for the comparable period of 2021. The increase for the 2022 first quarter was primarily attributable to higher R&D expenses and a reduction in fair value of short-term investments.

As at March 31, 2022, the Company's cash and short-term investments totalled $10.2 million.
