TORONTO, March 28, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HEALWELL AI Inc. (“HEALWELL” or the “Company”) (TSX: AIDX) or OTCQX: HWAIF), a healthcare technology company focused on AI and data science for preventative care, is pleased to announce its audited consolidated financial results for the fiscal year and fourth quarter ended December 31, 2023.

Dr. Alexander Dobranowski, HEALWELL’s CEO, commented, “Fourth quarter was a transformative period for the Company marked by our relaunch as HEALWELL AI and our new mission to improve healthcare and save lives through early disease detection with the use of leading AI and data science technologies. In the quarter, we achieved significant milestones including the establishment of a groundbreaking partnership with WELL Health Technologies, securing approximately $29.5 million through convertible debt and equity financings, and completing the acquisition of a majority interest in Pentavere, one of the leading healthcare AI platforms in Canada. I am grateful for what our team has been able to accomplish in such a short amount of time and excited with our continued trajectory as we show no signs of slowing down.”

Dr. Dobranowski further adds, “We have an extremely positive outlook based on our organic growth profile and M&A strategy. We currently have a strong and active acquisition pipeline with the potential to more than double our current revenue run-rate of over $20 million to over $40 million per year, by using the existing cash we have on hand. We’ve established a very strong foundation with a solid framework for HEALWELL’s continued growth. Other significant areas of focus include onboarding more physicians onto the HEALWELL platform, increasing sales of our AI tools and technology, expanding Intrahealth’s footprint, and enhancing our presence within the WELL Health ecosystem. We see an unparalleled opportunity in healthcare data science and artificial intelligence.”

Scott Nirenberski, HEALWELL’s CFO, commented, “During the fourth quarter HEALWELL significantly strengthened its balance sheet by raising a total of $29.5 million of debt and equity and discharging a number of significant secured and unsecured liabilities. Our 2023 results are not indicative of the Company’s current run-rate revenues as the Intrahealth acquisition was made in Q1-2024 and this is expected to contribute over $12 million in revenue and contribute positive EBITDA to HEALWELL this year. Furthermore, the 2023 results only included one month of contribution from our Pentavere acquisition. Looking ahead, we expect to see improved top and bottom-line performance as we activate against our advanced business development and M&A pipeline.”
