VANCOUVER, British Columbia and BOSTON, Feb. 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Imagin Medical (CSE: IME) (OTCQB: IMEXF) (Frankfurt & Stuttgart Symbol: DPD2) (“Imagin” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for the three months ended December 31, 2018. All amounts, unless otherwise specified, are expressed in Canadian dollars and are presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).
Recent Corporate Developments
-- Completed, via Imagin’s opto-electronic design firm, Optel, Inc., the Proof of Concept Phase of the redesigned i/BlueTM Imaging System’s control unit and validated the performance of the light source and imaging modules. -- Met with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) to discuss the i/Blue Imaging System’s regulatory path and the potential need for a clinical study. Imagin will use the FDA’s feedback to help refine its regulatory strategy and expects that discussions with the FDA will be ongoing. -- Welcomed Chris Bleck as a director of the Company. -- Received proceeds of approximately $1 million as a result of the exercise of 9,533,540 previously issued common share purchase warrants.
“This quarter, Optel completed the redesign of the i/Blue Imaging System’s control unit, resulting in an innovative modular system that has a 90% smaller footprint than our original prototype,” said Jim Hutchens, Imagin’s President and CEO. “We believe the redesign has resulted in a highly manufacturable and cost-effective product that conforms to all FDA specifications. As we continue the dialogue with the FDA to refine our regulatory strategy, we will work with Optel to prepare the system’s Dual Control Camera Unit for functional unit testing in the coming weeks.”
