Financial Results for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2022

Research and development expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022, were $1.5 million, compared to $0.6 million for the corresponding period in 2021. The increase is a result of the Company’s recruitment of specialized manpower and expanded development of its activities and operations.

Marketing expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022, were $472,000, compared to $130,000 for the corresponding period in 2021. The increase is due to the Company’s increase in marketing expenses due to an increase in payroll and share-based compensation expenses. Marketing activities commenced in the first quarter of 2021 and became more intensive with the Company’s need to create brand awareness and explore go-to-market capabilities.

General and administrative (G&A) expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were $1.5 million, compared to $0.8 million for the corresponding period in 2021. The increase resulted primarily from an increase in payroll and related expenses, as well as an increase in costs associated with the Company’s status as a publicly-traded company, following its initial public offering (IPO) on Nasdaq in July 2021, the increase in existing and new expenses included professional fees, director fees, and directors’ and officers’ insurance costs.

Finance income for the three months ended March 31, 2022, was $2.1 million compared to expenses in the amount of $5.6 million for the corresponding period in 2021. The increase in financial expenses or income was due to the calculation of the fair value of the Company’s financial equity liabilities to pre-IPO and IPO investors.

Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2022, was $1.3 million, compared to a net loss of $7.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021.
