Simavita Limited: Release of 2014 Financial Results

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/28/14 -- Simavita Limited (ASX: SVA)(TSX VENTURE: SV) ("Simavita" or the "Company") is pleased to release its audited financial results and Management's Discussion and Analysis for the year ended June 30, 2014 available on SEDAR at www.sedar.ca. These year-end financials are the first such document produced by the Company since its re-listing on the TSX-V and its admission to the Official List of the ASX and includes financial information pertaining to its acquisition of Simavita Holdings Limited in December 2013.

Key highlights:

--  The Company reported a net loss after tax for the year ended June 30,
    2014 of AUD$10.5 million representing an increase of AUD$3.1 million, or
    42%, over the loss for the previous year. This loss included several
    significant one-off expenses including a non-cash, share-based payments
    expense in respect of warrants and options granted as part of the
    Company's recent listing (AUD$1.3 million), transaction expenses
    associated with the Company's acquisition of Simavita Holdings and
    subsequent dual stock exchange listings (AUD$1.2 million) and a non-cash
    loss on acquisition of AUD$0.8 million.
--  After deducting these one-off amounts, the adjusted loss for the 2014
    year would have fallen to AUD$7.2 million, or AUD$209,876 (approximately
    3%), less than the loss for previous year.
--  Revenues generated by the Group from the sale of its SIM™ solution
    increased by AUD$33,605, or 11%, as compared to the prior year. This
    rate of sales growth, however, was reduced due to a focus by the Company
    on the completion of its Generation 4 SIM™ product for launch in the
    US market rather than securing further sales of earlier Generation 3
    products in Australia. In addition, as existing customers transitioned
    from the earlier Generation 3 product to the more advanced Generation 4
    product, the number of incontinence assessments performed fell,
    resulting in a temporary decline in both sales and revenue.
--  With the rollout of the latest Generation 4 product to existing
    customers now complete and the addition of new customers in both the US
    and Australian marketplaces, the rate of sales growth has already
    increased and is anticipated to increase further in the 2015 financial
    year.
--  Importantly, the Company's cost of sales decreased markedly during the
    2014 year by AUD$109,483, or 53%, from the previous year. The transition
    by existing customers to the Company's new Generation 4 product was
    accompanied by a revenue model more heavily focussed on the sale of
    consumable products which is less impacted by the sale of the more
    expensive hardware associated with the now-superseded Generation 3
    product.  It is envisaged that additional product developments now
    underway will result in further reductions in costs, delivering benefits
    for the Company and its customers alike.
--  The total cash reserves of the Simavita Group as at July 31, 2014 were
    approximately AUD$9.2 million.
