NEW YORK, Oct. 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Salona Global Medical Device ?Corporation (the ??"Company") (TSXV:SGMD) today announced it has booked a $837,000 order for its Biodex System Pro4tm and Biodex ?System 4 MVPtm Isokinetic dynamometer machines from its international distributor in Poland ?which represents an increase of 157% in revenues over 2022 for that market.

This order follows the Company's recent announcement that it expects to report, based on preliminary results, positive Adjusted EBITDA (defined below) and net income for its third quarter ending September 30, 2023? and represents continued improvement for the Company in the fourth quarter ending December 31, 2023.

The new management team has made international sales a part of its focus to drive organic growth ?leveraging the Biodex brand name and unique technology offering around isokinetic ?dynamometers.

The Biodex System 4 machine has established itself as the dominant player in ?the isokinetic physical therapy market, having been utilized in over 2,000 research trials1. The Biodex System 4 is known for its unmatched performance, accuracy, and safety, making it highly reliable for both clinicians and researchers due to its excellent correlation coefficients in terms of reliability, accuracy, validity, and repeatability2,3,4. It is ?the leading product among universities, hospitals, and researchers worldwide, surpassing all ?other isokinetic machines in terms of adoption and usage.?

The Company recently announced a reformulated business plan along with its intention to change its name to ?"Evome Medical Technologies Inc.". The plan is straight forward and solves the biggest needs in the recovery science market: Next ?generation solutions for physical therapy and chiropractic clinic customers using (1) connectivity, (2) ?portability, and (3) artificial intelligence (AI) to increase the amount of patients a physical therapist can ?treat in a given hour - improving profitability, patient care and therapist morale.?

The solutions include both products, such as Biodex and Mio-Guard currently in the portfolio, ?as well as a new focus on services, all designed to improve the business performance for ?physical therapy clinics, chiropractic businesses and athletic departments globally.

The new management team plans to debut the new line of next generation products and ?services in the coming weeks culminating with a new investor website and presentation for ?investor meetings targeted to launch November 16, 2023 in the U.S. and Canada.?

?"I am pleased to see our efforts to drive international sales are paying off in a big way this ?quarter," said CEO Mike Seckler. "This order will go along way towards an improved fourth quarter ?to add to the already announced expectation of a profitable third quarter in the books. Our ?focus will soon turn to 2024 and releasing our next generation products and services in the ?coming weeks."?

Full financial results from the third quarter ending September 30, 2023 will be filed with regulators on or before November 14, 2023.

Non-GAAP Measures

This press release refers to "Adjusted EBITDA" which is a non-GAAP and non-IFRS financial measure that does ?not have a standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP or IFRS. The Company's presentation of this financial ?measure may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. This non-GAAP financial measure assists the Company's management in comparing its operating performance over time because certain items may obscure underlying business trends and make comparisons of long-term performance difficult, as they are of a nature and/or size that occur with inconsistent frequency or relate to discrete acquisition plans that are fundamentally different from the ongoing operating plans of the Company. The Company's management also believes that presenting this measure allows investors to view the Company's performance using the same measures that the Company uses in evaluating its financial and business performance and trends.

"Adjusted EBITDA" is defined as net loss excluding interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation of property and equipment, amortization of right-of-use asset, amortization of intangible asset, foreign exchange (loss) gain, other income, provision for impairment, change in fair value of contingent consideration, transaction costs, and stock-based compensation.
