Our last profile was extremely thin exploded over 30% out of the gate.
Today’s profile has more of a following and countless catalysts working for the company right now.
Turn your attention to Nasdaq: BTCY.
BTCY was on the OTC just last month. It has recently completed it’s up-listing to the Nasdaq, an accomplishment that many talk about and very few are actually able to execute on.
There is no doubt that the Nasdaq listing will bring a lot of fresh eyes to the company.
BTCY is reforming the healthcare market as one of the fastest-growing companies in the med-tech sector. The company bridges the gap in remote cardiac monitoring, preventive and chronic care management by using the power of IoT (internet of things), wearables, and connected devices.
Not only does the company offer real-time, comprehensive monitoring and diagnostic services for cardiac-related healthcare and comorbidities, but its devices are also built with features that can dispatch emergency care services should any anomalies or arrhythmias occur when a device is worn.
The company has shown triple-digit, quarter-over-quarter, year-over-year growth since day 1. This incredible growth has led Biotricity to be self-sufficient and innovative as it grows. With an existing customer base, a well-respected footprint within the medical community and a high rate of retention, Biotricity might be well-positioned to be a major player in this exploding arena for years to come.
BTCY is Targeting a Growing and Underserved Market with the Bioflux.
The company’s first and primary solution, Bioflux, addresses the growing and underserved Mobile Cardiac Telemetry (MCT) market.
Bioflux is a high-precision, single-unit MCT device providing real-time monitoring and transmission of ECG information from ambulatory patients. This entire system is a complete solution for remote cardiac monitoring that merges seamlessly with physicians’ existing platforms and workflows to better detect, diagnose, and monitor.
For medical practitioners, this solution looks to be technologically superior and more financially attractive too. Clinicians designed the Bioflux online portal for clinicians. After all, the prime features of the product were built after speaking with numerous healthcare professionals and seeing what their most requested features were.
They track over 100 billion heartbeats a year, monitored in real-time by their certified cardiac technicians with unmatched reporting capabilities.
REDWOOD CITY, CA / ACCESSWIRE / August 16, 2021 /Biotricity, Inc.(OTCQB:BTCY), a medical diagnostic and consumer healthcare technology company, is pleased to provide financial results for its fiscal 2022 first quarter, which ended June 30, 2021. Full financial results will be posted on EDGAR later today. Biotricity’s Q1 results maintain a trend of both sequential and year over year (YoY) growth, with revenue once again setting a new quarterly record.
For Q1 Fiscal 2022, management is noting the following highlights:
- Q1 revenue of $1.76 million represented the 9th consecutive quarter of triple digit YoY growth
- Quarterly revenue increased 290% when comparing the first quarter of fiscal 2022 to the corresponding quarter of fiscal 2021, showing continued acceleration over the 227% growth in Q4/2021, 162% growth in Q3/2021, and 115% growth in Q2/2021
- Quarterly sequential revenue increased 49% compared to 19% posted in the prior quarter, a significant acceleration bolstered by consistent month-over-month sequential growth
- The Company nearly tripled sales with a smaller corresponding increase in Operating Expenses, which rose only 17% to $4.2 million for Q1 FY22 compared to $3.6 million in the prior year
“Continuous quarter over quarter revenue growth is a testament to our continued effort to expand our salesforce and footprint, stated Dr. Waqaas Al-Siddiq “Our Technology as a Service (TaaS) model and highly competitive solution is attracting an increasing number of cardiologists to the Biotricity brand. We are still waiting to receive approval from the FDA for our Biotres holter product, which will give us a major new product to sell to our existing customers.”
“Our operating expenses were only 7% higher than last year, despite a major ramp up in sales, which provides a good measure of the scalability of our business,” said Biotricity’s CFO, John Ayanoglou. “While our year-over-year growth is increasing, our sequential quarterly growth is even more encouraging, coming it just shy of 50% in this quarter. As we have discussed in recent quarters, with multiple new products on the horizon, R&D spending continues to be strategically high, coming in at nearly $590,000 for the quarter, a 39% increase over the prior year.”
Based on current trends, the Company is projecting continued revenue growth for fiscal 2022 and into fiscal 2023. As a reminder, Biotricity filed a 510(K) seeking FDA approval for its new Biotres holter product on December 31, 2020 and is prepared for a fast launch following that approval. Although the approval process has been slowed somewhat by the widely reported FDA backlog, the process is otherwise on track in terms of the steps required of the Company.

Company Expects New Personal Medical Device Kit to be available to customer by early 2022
REDWOOD CITY, CA / ACCESSWIRE / September 14, 2021 /Biotricity Inc.(NASDAQ:BTCY), a medical diagnostic and consumer healthcare technology company, today announced that it has developed a personal medical device kit, Biokit, a bundled home-use set comprised of a digital thermometer, a pulse oximeter, and a blood pressure cuff. All three devices are FDA cleared, wireless capable and integrate into the Biotricity ecosystem, a platform for interconnectivity. This is the next step in the evolution of the Bioflux solution, where other available tools are fully integrated to create a complete solution for remote cardiac monitoring.
You can see that BTCY has recently made a strong move in the past 6 months and now we are seeing activity pick up and interest start to come into this one as the recent up-listing to the Nasdaq will attract a whole new class of investors who wouldn’t take a look at this one while it was listed on the OTC.
Biotricity Reports Record Quarterly and Annual Revenue for Fiscal 2021
REDWOOD CITY, CA / ACCESSWIRE / June 15, 2021 / Biotricity, Inc.(OTCQB:BTCY), a medical diagnostic and consumer healthcare technology company, is pleased to provide unaudited, preliminary financial results for its fiscal 2021 fourth quarter and fiscal year, which ended March 31, 2021. Full financial results will be posted on EDGAR by June 31, 2021. Biotricity’s Q4 and annual results continued a trend of both sequential and year over year (YoY) revenue growth, with revenue setting a new quarterly record in the fiscal fourth quarter.
For fiscal 2021, management is noting the following highlights:
- Q4 revenue of $1.2 million represented the 8th consecutive quarter of triple digit YoY growth
- Quarterly revenue increased 227%, showing significant acceleration over the 162% increase posted in the prior quarter
- Quarterly sequential revenue increased 19%, bolstered by a long-term trend of month-over-month sequential growth
- Net loss attributable to common stockholders amounted to $16.2 million, or 43.1 cents per share
- Annual revenue reached $3.4 million, a 139% increase over fiscal 2020
“Our growth this quarter was even stronger than last quarter, which is exciting to see, as this is purely organic and the impact of our new products has not yet begun,” stated Waqaas Al-Siddiq, CEO of Biotricity. “We are in that sweet spot of our revenue cycle where we are posting strong monthly, quarterly and annual growth, with visibility out several years. As we enter a period of expected revenue acceleration, our model is proving to be highly predictable based on our consistent ability to win accounts throughout the U.S. We expect to easily beat Q4 revenue in our current quarter ending June 30, 2021 and are targeting triple digit revenue growth for fiscal 2022.”
“Our gross operating expenses grew at a slower pace than our revenue in Q4, and in net terms were significantly offset by the forgiveness of the Company’s PPP loan. This outcome is also reflective of what will happen as our business scales,” said Biotricity’s CFO, John Ayanoglou. “Similar to last quarter, we continue to have upfront costs related to expanding our sales force and putting new equipment into the field, so there is a delayed positive impact from those expenses that will be seen in the form of revenue in future quarters. With multiple new products on the horizon, R&D spending continues to be necessarily high, currently at 46% of revenue, but down from the 68% figure from last quarter. Based on our sales pipeline and high customer retention rate, we have high confidence in our sources of future revenue growth.”
Dr. Waqaas Al-Siddiq added, “In the second half of calendar 2021, we plan to have a potent combination of an expanding sales force and new product offerings, which will continue our growth rate. As a result, we expect to increase our revenue projections by year-end, depending on the timing of future product launches. Our technology as a service (TaaS) model and best in class product line are now time tested and brings us a clear advantage, as we continue to win in the marketplace against competitors. We made the decision to build both our technology and salesforce in-house, which took considerable time and effort, but has resulted in a faster adoption track than our peers at this stage of the growth cycle. Today, we have some of the newest, most advanced products in our addressable market, which will expand from $1 billion up to $3 billion as we enter the Holter space. With a planned listing to a national stock exchange on the horizon, provided that the Company meets applicable listing requirements, and some major milestones pending, we have never been more excited about our potential to gain a meaningful share of the cardiac market.”
