Toronto, Ontario – The Newswire – November 29, 2023 - Ventripoint Diagnostics Ltd. ("Ventripoint" or the "Company"), (TSXV:VPT) (OTC:VPTDF) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2023.
Ventripoint has successfully and seamlessly integrated its specialized AI-powered 3D Echo software application with ASCEND’s diagnostic viewer, InView, and reporting application, Cardiovascular Structured Reporting. This product was unveiled at a major pediatric cardiology conference this past August. This cardiovascular workflow product provides an end-to-end solution that rivals other products on the market. It is streamlined, smart, and effective for cardiology reading, reporting, and diagnostics, thereby improving diagnosis and monitoring of fetal, pediatric, and adult congenital heart disease.
As part of Ventripoint’s efforts to build awareness and drive adoption of the Ventripoint VMS+, the Company was featured in an international news-style programme, “The Hidden Heart”, made possible by the British Heart Foundation and ITN Business. The programme, which documented how Ventripoint transforms ultrasound images into 3D models of the heart and provides cardiac metrics with an accuracy comparative to cardiac MRI, launched on World Heart Day, September 29th. Ventripoint was one of a handful of technologies chosen to demonstrate innovations in treating heart disease.
The Company recorded deferred sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2023, of $71,984. This will be recorded as revenue when the clients take ownership of the units.
During the three months ended September 30, 2023, the Company recorded a net loss of $1,174,285, compared to a net loss of $1,404,688 for the three months ended September 30, 2022. The decrease in net loss was due primarily to decreases in general and administrative expenses and sales and marketing expenses offset by increases in research and development primarily due to higher salaries and design costs.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2023, the Company recorded a net loss of $3,634,823, compared to a net loss of $3,768,472 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022. The decrease in net loss was due primarily to salaries, professional fees, investor relations, and share-based compensation.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2023, the Company used cash in operating activities of $2,812,122 compared to cash used in operating activities of $3,091,712 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022. The year-over-year decline is due primarily to managing working capital.

Ventripoint CEO and President, Dr. Alvira Macanovic said, “This past quarter, we continued our marketing and sales efforts through our direct sales channels and distributors introducing the Ventripoint VMS+ to cardiologists from hospitals across the United States, Europe, and the United Kingdom and continue to make progress on our sales growth plan. We have built a community of early adopters who share stories of the benefits of the Ventripoint VMS+. We are continuing to explore additional partnerships such as the one with Ascend that will further our sales growth. I am pleased to state that our planning and consistent efforts are bearing fruit, as we become a known brand in different medical communities in both Europe and North America”.
