Mr. Kevin Richardson, CEO, stated, “We are very pleased with the strong interest we observed from customers at the three conferences we attended. The Third Annual Leaders in Wound Healing Conference in New Orleans, the Symposium on Advanced Wood Care Spring (SAWC Spring) in National Harbor, MD, and EWMA 2023 Symposium in Milan, Italy. These conferences were an ideal platform for us to showcase our innovative non-invasive, regenerative medicine solutions for the treatment of chronic wounds.
SANUWAVE Health is committed to advancing the field of regenerative medicine and improving patient care. The company’s groundbreaking technology has been shown to accelerate the healing of chronic wounds, leading to improved patient outcomes and reduced healthcare costs.”
Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the company raised an additional approximately $1.2 million in order to maximize flexibility around sales hiring and inventory build. Terms were consistent with the previous financing. This cash is not reflected in the Q1 statements.
The Company has continued to have constrained inventory supply during Q1 2023. Despite this, we anticipate revenue growth of approximately 15% to 25% during Q2 2023, compared to Q2 2022. The company believes that supply is further improving and that we will observe continued increase in revenue growth in Q2 2023.
