Liquidity:
As of September 30, 2019, the Company had cash of $396 and total current assets of $2,163 less current liabilities of $1,048. Working capital increased $154 to $1,115 at September 30, 2019 compared to $1,269 at December 31, 2018.

During the third quarter, cash increased $381 primarily due to net proceeds provided by financing activities of $2,285 offset by net cash used in operating activities of $1,904.

Business & Operational Highlights:

  • Announced the expansion of its animal health business with the launch of Veterinarian Strength Myos Canine Muscle Formula®. Sold exclusively through leading veterinary practices, Veterinarian Strength Myos Canine Muscle Formula combines Fortetropin, with the branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) leucine, isoleucine and valine, further boosting the beneficial effects of muscle protein synthesis.
  • Entered into a research agreement with the Department of Kinesiology at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada, which will conduct a study to examine the impact of Fortetropin on reducing muscle disuse atrophy in young men. Muscle atrophy due to disuse commonly occurs in response to immobilization such as the atrophy of the thigh muscles following a period of casting for fracture or following surgery such as knee replacement.
  • Announced a marketing partnership with the Texas Golf Association (TGA), the largest statewide amateur golf association in the United States, with over 147,000 active members. As part of this marketing partnership, MYOS will present a 4-part instructional video series available exclusively to TGA members during the fall and winter months. The series is aimed at introducing members to Yolked®, our NSF Certified for Sports®-branded sports nutrition product.
  • Announced positive top-line results from its randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study that was conducted at the University of California, Berkeley and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, evaluating the impact of Fortetropin on the rate of muscle protein synthesis in older men and women (60-75 years of age). The study showed that Fortetropin significantly increased the fractional synthetic rate of muscle proteins relative to placebo.
  • Completed a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled veterinary clinical trial at Kansas State University to evaluate the impact of Fortetropin on 100 dogs recovering from tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) surgery. The trial demonstrated that dogs that received Fortetropin had reduced muscle atrophy and could exert more force with their operated limb relative to dogs that received a placebo. Further, dogs in the Fortetropin group maintained stable levels of myostatin following surgery while an increase in myostatin levels of ~10% was noted in dogs that received the placebo.
  • Announced that its Chief Executive Officer, Joseph Mannello, will deliver remarks on Myos Canine Muscle Formula®, the Company’s fast-growing Fortetropin-based veterinary product, at the New York Vet Show on Friday, November 8th at 12:30pm, at Innovation Showcase 1 in the Javits Center. Over the last 2 years, the New York Vet Show has provided veterinary healthcare professionals with practical and relevant educational, training and networking opportunities, hosting over 200 exhibitors and over 2,000 delegates each year.

Management Commentary:
Joseph Mannello, Chief Executive Officer of MYOS, commented, «We are very pleased with our strong financial results for the third quarter 2019, with revenues during this quarter exceeding our revenues during the first half of 2019. As stated in previous communications, we are extremely focused on growing sales for our two key products, Myos Canine Muscle Formula® and Yolked®. Our various commercial initiatives are focused on increasing Fortetropin’s reach and presence, and growing our revenues substantially.

«We are extremely encouraged by the promising results from multiple human and canine clinical studies to date and are delighted to work with the respected research group of Professor Phillips at McMaster University. Completing this study is an important part of our commercial strategy to increase our business in this growing market of tremendous opportunity.

«Moving forward, we expect continued growth in our veterinary segment as the positive results from our clinical study at Kansas State University become more widely known, which will be supported by an aggressive marketing campaign.

«We are truly excited about the course ahead for the remainder of 2019 and beyond. We firmly believe that this quarter has been a major turning point for our company and that the future looks exceedingly positive. We believe that we are well positioned to drive future growth in multiple market segments, which will enable us to build upon our business and deliver value for our shareholders,» concluded Mr. Mannello.
