Chun-Hsien (Eddy) Tsai, Ainos' Chairman of the Board, President, and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are delighted to celebrate our first listing anniversary on the Nasdaq and reflect on the progress we have achieved over the past year. Since our listing, we have achieved several significant milestones that demonstrate our commitment to diversifying and growing our revenues and to building a capital efficient business model."
"First, we successfully commercialized Ainos COVID-19 test kits in Taiwan, providing a crucial tool in the fight against the pandemic during 2022. In June 2023, we launched five VELDONA® Pet cytoprotein health supplements in Taiwan, with the target of expanding into new markets and achieving revenues of approximately US$20 million in 2024. We have also established multiple strategic relationships, including one with Swiss Pharmaceutical for VELDONA® human drug manufacturing and another with Topmed International Biotech for marketing VELDONA® Pet in Taiwan. Our fundraising efforts have proven fruitful, with a $3 million private placement in March that we believe will help us accelerate our growth and innovation."
"Looking ahead to the remainder of 2023, we are thrilled to be embarking on a new growth phase. We have partnered with Nisshinbo Micro Devices Inc. and Taiwan Inabata Sangyo Co. to co-develop a volatile organic compound sensing platform for applications including telehealth, automotive, industrial, and environmental safety. We believe we have formed a strong team to drive our vision of digitizing smell and creating potential hardware and licensing revenues for Ainos. We are also excited for the business potential of VELDONA® Pet, which we expect will be a significant growth driver for our business. Importantly, we expect to complete Ainos Flora's clinical study by the end of 2023. We will continue to pursue out-licensing opportunities for our VELDONA® human drug candidates, with the goal of expanding our impact in the healthcare market. We believe that these initiatives will position us for further success and development in the years ahead. As we celebrate this one-year anniversary, I would like to thank our shareholders for their tremendous support during our journey. I am incredibly proud of what we have accomplished together, and look forward to the next chapter in our story as a Nasdaq-listed, diversified healthcare company."
