Medipattern Reports Highlights and Results for Q1 2013

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/30/12 --

Attention: Business/Financial Editors

The Medipattern Corporation ("Medipattern" or "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MKI), is pleased to report first quarter highlights and results of operations from the Company's 2013 financial year, to September 30, 2012.

HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE QUARTER:


--  Increased Visualize: Vascular(TM) customer base to a total of 46
    customers which provide services in a combined total of 272 sites. 
    
--  Processed 1,243 cases in the quarter. 
    
--  Completed the acquisition of Mytrak Health Systems Inc.'s Mobile
    Technology Business Unit ("mHealth division") in conjunction with a $1.8
    million financing. 

"The customer base for our vascular product line continues to grow. We are refining the installation and training to streamline our start up process for Visualize: Vascular(TM) customers. We have implemented a cloud based system for delivery of medical images and reports for our customers so we can begin to scale the solution as we anticipate increased scanning volume. This new delivery system will enable our customers to begin to increase their volumes as we transition many of them from pre-revenue test scanning to contracted primary workload cases," stated Jeff Collins, CEO of The Medipattern Corporation. "The company also introduced its wearable mobile health device, SMARTCOACH(TM), into its Visualize: Vascular(TM) customer base. The medical community appreciates the device's ability to highlight heart activity and monitor the intensity of physical activity. Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology is utilizing SMARTCOACH(TM) as a method to encourage all 600 of their employees to meet their individual wellness goals, emphasizing that the entire organization benefits when the team is in good health."

"A new case study shows that Visualize: Vascular(TM) improved the Physician's ability to better identify those patients at risk to stroke," Collins stated. "The paper was presented at the Annual Meeting of the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound, a division of the American College of Radiology. The paper shows that Visualize's 3D rendering results have a greater than 99% correlation to Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA). Each case was run with the standard of care: Carotid Ultrasound and MRA, and then with Visualize. Angiography is the gold standard for determining vascular integrity. The study shows that the standard of care Carotid Ultrasound only agreed with MRA 75% of the time. Using Visualize's 3D with Carotid Ultrasound improved diagnostic accuracy to the same level as angiography, bringing the accuracy of angiography to ultrasound. Clinical results continue to strongly substantiate the benefits of our vascular product line."

Collins continues, "Medipattern is positioned well to continue growing its vascular product line and increase delivery of its mHealth division products through this channel."

Financial Highlights for Q1 Fiscal 2013:


--  Revenue totaled $100,743 for the three month period ended September 30,
    2012 (Q1 Fiscal 2013) versus $6,504 for Q1 Fiscal 2012. Of the $94,239
    increase, device and accessories sales from the new mHealth division
    accounted for $76,399, subscription fees for Visualize: Vascular(TM), B-
    CAD-FOR-LIFE(TM) and SMARTCOACH(TM) accounted for $14,344 and $10,000
    from the sale of B-CAD(r) licenses. Throughout Q1 2013 the Company
    continued to focus its core R&D resources and marketing expertise on
    meeting its iaHealth division deadlines for final commercialization of
    its Visualize: Vascular(TM) software, while improving the customer user
    experience and device interface on its mHealth division technology
    platform. As a consequence, no licensing or professional fees were
    earned in the quarter (Q1 2012 - $nil); 
    
--  Non-interest operating expenses in Q1 Fiscal 2013 totaled $1,291,287
    versus $581,029 for Q1 Fiscal 2012, an overall increase of 122%. Of the
    $710,258 increase, $403,492 was attributable to the addition of the new
    mHealth division, while related acquisition costs, increased patent fees
    and higher share-based compensation accounted for the balance of the
    increased expenses. The Company remains committed to controlling all
    discretionary non-interest spending until operating cash flow improves
    and new financing is arranged; 
    
--  Total interest expense (including accreted interest on Convertible Debt)
    for Q1 Fiscal 2013 increased 68% to $201,279 (Q1 2012 - $120,097) as a
    result of the commencement of 8% interest due on certain Convertible
    Notes starting on January 1, 2012; 
    
--  In Q1 Fiscal 2013 the Company also recorded 2 significant non-cash
    items; one, a fair value gain on embedded conversion options in its 2010
    Convertible Notes of $619,765 (Q1 - 2012 - $39,287) and two, a goodwill
    impairment provision on its recently acquired mHealth division of
    $1,764,584; 
    
--  Resulting net loss for Q1 Fiscal 2013 was $2,549,663 ($0.03 per share)
    versus $653,096 ($0.01 per share) for Q1 fiscal 2012; 
    
--  As at September 30, 2012, cash totaled $238,733 (June 30, 2012 -
    $348,732), current assets, including short-term investments of $272,689
    (June 30, 2012 - $271,665), were $1,549,431 (June 30, 2012 - $870,989)
    and current liabilities were $1,050,475 (June 30, 2012 - $355,636).
    Working capital at September 30, 2012 totaled $498,956 (June 30, 2012 -
    $515,353), total assets totaled $3,108,838 (June 30, 2012 - $922,373)
    and total liabilities were $6,814,934 (June 30, 2012 - $6,652,560).

Subsequent to September 30, 2012


--  The Company initiated significant cost reduction initiatives to minimize
    monthly cash expenses and allow available financial resources to focus
    specifically on revenue generation. Included in these cash containment
    measures is senior management's (including its NEO's) agreement to
    receive no or reduced salaries until sufficient new liquidity is
    achieved through either new capital financing or enhanced revenue
    generation. 
    
--  November 7, 2012, the Company announced it had arranged a term debt
    facility ('Facility") to provide up to $1,000,000 of working capital.
    The Facility calls for advances to be made monthly to the Company,
    initially for $100,000. The Notes will expire on June 30, 2013, and will
    bear interest at 6% per annum. The Notes will be secured by a general
    security agreement over all the assets of the Company, in priority to
    all existing security interests granted by the Company. The closing of
    the Facility and the initial $100,000 advance is subject to completion
    of definitive agreements and TSX Venture Exchange approval. Medipattern
    and its Board have agreed the holders of the Notes have the right to
    appoint up to two representatives as directors of Medipattern's Board.
    To date, this Facility has not closed and no funds have been advanced.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
