Numinus Wellness Inc. ("Numinus" or the "Company") (TSX: NUMI) (OTC: NUMIF), a mental health care company advancing innovative treatments and safe, evidence-based psychedelic-assisted therapies, today announced its fiscal first quarter results for the three months ended November 30, 2021 .

"We have made significant advancements in all areas of our business over the last several months, with many exciting opportunities on the horizon," said Payton Nyquvest , Founder and CEO. "Of note, the partnership across our lab and clinical teams has been instrumental in passing key milestones on two major clinical trials: one for a proprietary Psilocybe formulation and the other a MAPS-sponsored MDMA study. In addition, we're continuing to make discoveries in our Bioscience lab and recently begun genetic testing on several newly-acquired psychedelic mushroom species."

Mr. Nyquvest continued, "The recent amendments by Health Canada to the Special Access Programme further underscore the importance and growth potential of Numinus' wellness clinic network. With facilities purpose-designed for a wide range of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapies, therapists already trained on providing Psilocybin-assisted and MDMA-assisted therapies, and a Health Canada distribution license that allows us to import, possess, produce, and distribute psychedelic compounds – Numinus is well positioned as a national leader to provide these important treatments to those who qualify. I'm encouraged by the recent changes by Health Canada and proud of everyone at Numinus for the ongoing leadership, drive and commitment to our mission over the past quarter."

First Quarter Financial Highlights:

  • Cash balance of $53.9 million as of November 30, 2021
  • Revenues grew 244.5% year-over-year to $0.8 million in Q1 2021, due primarily to the acquisition of Mindspace. Sequentially, revenues grew 60.9% compared to Q4 2021.
  • Gross profit of $50,965 in Q1 2022, compared to gross loss of $38,135 in Q1 2021
  • Gross margin was 6.5%, compared to -16.6% in Q1 2021
  • Loss was $5.4 million for Q1 2022, compared to a loss of $1.9 million in Q1 2021

Operational Highlights During and Subsequent to Fiscal First Quarter 2022:

Numinus Bioscience – Laboratory Operations

  • Q1 2022 revenue of $141,702 , a 56.4% sequential increase from Q4 2021, but a 27.7% decrease from $196,090 in Q1 2021. This year-over-year decline is primarily due to the Company ceasing cannabis related activities during 2021 to dedicate resources towards advancing psychedelic-centered service offerings – including psychedelic analytical testing and contract laboratory services, to align with the Company's strategy and overall objectives.
  • On November 29, 2021 , the Company announced that Numinus Bioscience developed proprietary psychedelic drug tests with new toxicity and potency scans. These new analytical tests will accelerate Numinus' research and development capabilities and generate new revenue streams through third-party client product testing.

Phase 1 clinical trial on NBIO-01:

  • On October 24, 2021 , Numinus announced it finalized the study design and protocol for a Phase 1 clinical trial on a naturally derived psilocybin extract ("NBIO-01"), advancing Numinus' investigation of its first proprietary psychedelic product, which was developed using a patent-pending technology.
  • On January 14, 2022 , the Company submitted its clinical trial application to Health Canada for its Phase 1 trial of NBIO-01. The clinical trial, named HOPE, is a two-phase study that will take place at a Vancouver based clinic. Upon approval, Numinus will begin testing the extract for bioavailability and tolerability on 20 healthy volunteers, followed by testing against a psilocybin comparator on a further 28 healthy volunteers.

MAPS-sponsored MDMA-assisted therapy for PTSD clinical trial study ("MAPPUSX"):

  • On November 10, 2021 , the Company announced it will host the Montreal and Vancouver sites of the MAPPUSX study, which will continue to evaluate the safety of MDMA in treating severe PTSD, titled "A multi-site open-label extension study of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD."
  • On January 19, 2022 , Numinus announced that it had received approvals from Health Canada and the Institutional Review Board to proceed with its clinical trial study for MAPPUSX. Enrollment for the trial is expected to begin shortly and will be open to eligible participants who were previously enrolled in the placebo arm of the parent study ("MAPP1") or who were not able to receive treatment due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Subsequent to the quarter:

  • Numinus Bioscience secured several additional strains of psychedelic mushroom species and has already begun genomic analysis of these spore prints for research purposes.

Numinus Health – Numinus Wellness Clinic Network

  • Q1 2022 revenue of $647,915 , a 61.9% sequential increase from Q4 2021, and a 1,857.6% increase compared to $33,098 during the same period last year when Numinus had only one clinic, which was impacted by COVID-19 during the quarter.
  • On September 23, 2021 , Numinus completed the acquisition of the Neurology Centre of Toronto ("NCT") for less than $1.0 million , allowing for the planned expansion of NCT into a comprehensive neurologic care center specialized in psychedelic neurology.
  • During Q1 2022, clients received a total of 6,217 appointments through Numinus clinics (including one-on-one and group therapy sessions, neurology-related appointments and Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy), representing a 91.9% increase in clinic appointments compared to the prior quarter (Q4 2021), due in part to the acquisition of NCT. On a same-store basis, excluding NCT, client appointments increased 42.0% compared to the prior quarter.
  • On November 10, 2021 , the Company announced that it had secured two additional clinic locations in Vancouver and Montreal that will primarily be used for clinical research studies in the near-term.

Subsequent to the quarter:

  • Numinus has finalized a formal Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy ("KAP") training program for therapists, with virtual training sessions occurring over the next two months. This training program will expand the number of Numinus therapists qualified to provide KAP sessions to clients.
  • As of January 20, 2022 , Numinus has five wellness clinics offering services to clients (one in Vancouver , one in Toronto , and three in Montreal ) that have a total of 21 treatment rooms. In addition, the Company has two dedicated research clinics where psychedelic studies are being conducted (one in Vancouver and one in Montreal ).

Corporate Updates

  • On November 22, 2021 , the Company changed its OTC ticker symbol to "NUMIF" (from "LKYSF") to better align with its Canadian ticker symbol.
  • Subsequent to the quarter:
  • On December 16, 2021 , Numinus graduated to the TSX (from the TSX-Venture), trading under the symbol "NUMI".

Industry Updates

  • On January 5, 2022 , Health Canada implemented amendments to the Special Access Programme ("SAP"). These amendments now enable:
    • Doctors and practitioners to apply for psychedelic medicines that have shown promise through Phase 2 or Phase 3 trials, on behalf of their patients, when other traditional medicines and therapies have not proven effective.
    • Doctors and patients to hear, within 48 hours of the application being submitted, if access to psychedelic medicines are approved for their case. If approved, doctors can refer patients to clinics – such as Numinus' wellness clinics, to receive psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy.
    • Companies holding a Health Canada dealers license, including Numinus Bioscience, to act as a licensed distributor of certain psychedelic medicines for SAP approved cases.
