CEO COMMENTARY

Sales and Marketing

During this past summer quarter, we made it our most prosperous Q1 quarter to date, characterized by sustained growth. As part of our ongoing transformation strategy, we are strategically transitioning sales operations to our distributor network. This allows us to concentrate on PHI's core business: developing innovative HoloMonitor products for regenerative medicine and other clinical applications.

A noteworthy achievement was the successful launch of our HoloMonitor M4FL product (https://phiab.com/press-release/phi-s-new-holomonitor-m4fl-premiers-at-major-scientific-conferences/), which made its debut at the 2023 Annual Congress of the European Association for Cancer Research (EACR 2023) in Torino, Italy, and in the same week at the thought-leading International Society for Stem Cell Research 2023 Annual Meeting (ISSCR 2023) in Boston, Massachusetts. This summer also afforded our development team valuable time for conducting final tests and fine-tuning processes, collaborating closely with our supplier and first users to ensure the timely delivery of pre-series production units for autumn. We have diligently prepared an ample inventory of systems for sales this year. Now, the new HoloMonitor M4FL has its first customers in the EU and the US. With promising discussions and demonstrations following our summer conferences and September initiatives, we're optimistic as we look ahead to the coming quarters.

Business Development

Regenerative Medicine

We aim to lead the widespread adoption of HoloMonitor and quantitative phase imaging as the standard for cell quality control in regenerative medicine. Fortunately, the stakeholder organizations we have joined to achieve the objective are well-defined internationally and locally in Sweden. The Alliance for Regenerative Medicine (https://alliancerm.org/) is a well-recognized international organization for cell-based therapy developers, regulators and technology developers. In October, PHI is invited to a senior-level networking regarding Cell & Gene Meeting in Carlsbad, California. ATMP Sweden (https://atmpsweden.se/) is a national counterpart promoting patient access to safe and effective medicines based on recombinant genes, live cells and/or tissue engineering. This new class of regenerative medicines is classified as Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs) by the European Medicines Agency.

Simultaneously, our dedicated biomedical engineer stationed at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) in Winston-Salem has diligently conducted live cell experiments and facilitated collaborative efforts with our valued ReMDO partners. Our alliance with SAS, QIAGEN and BioSpherix to advance cell-based biomanufacturing (https://phiab.com/pressrelease/phi-sas-qiagen-and-biospherix-form-alliance-to-advance-cell-based-biomanufacturing/) remains vibrant, marked by regular meetings and substantial progress. We're proud to share that this collaboration has secured a ReMDO grant (https://www.newswise.com/articles/remdo-grants-support-commercialization-of-regenerative-medicine-therapies), a testament to the support for our ongoing initiatives and our unwavering commitment to progress.

Quality Control System

The process of achieving Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) compliance continues. The first step in the process is to implement a company-wide quality control system. GMP compliance is essential for us as regulators require that our customers - cell therapy manufacturers - comply with GMP.

These developments underscore our commitment to advancing technology and driving innovation in regenerative medicine. I look forward to walking with you on this promising path for PHI.

THE GREATER PERSPECTIVE

Slow AI makes the impossible possible

For the first time, low-cost computers are sufficiently powerful to allow in-process quality assessment using microscopy.

Despite the current hype and its usefulness in medicine and other areas, artificial intelligence (AI) is nothing more than a slow-learning idiot compared to a child.

After just seeing a few examples of cats and dogs, a 3-year-old can easily tell you whether a pet is a cat or a dog. Breed or point of view does not matter. The toddler will always get it right. On the contrary, AI needs to learn from thousands upon thousands of cat and dog images of all breeds from all possible points of view to "understand" the difference.

Nevertheless, AI's slow learning, even on supercomputers, has led to the development of specialized low-cost computer technology that rapidly computes the sum of many multiplications. The maker of most laptop processors recently released a processor specifically designed for AI, which Intel promotes through a collaboration with the European Organization for Nuclear Research, CERN.

Incidentally, fast multiplications and additions are precisely what is needed to make microscopy practical and useful outside the laboratory. The narrow focal depth of a few micrometers (image below) makes conventional microscopy impractical in non-laboratory environments.

[image]

Unlike conventional microscopy, quantitative phase imaging (QPI) records a hologram from which the final image is numerically created and focused, as exemplified in the panel below. The QPI focal distance is thus set when viewing the image, not when the image is recorded as in conventional microscopy and photography.

[image]

The panel shows a hologram of cells recorded by HoloMonitor (left) and the resulting QPI image in 3D (right).

Like normal imaging, standard QPI requires that the focal plane is parallel to the image sensor. However, the fast processors developed for AI make it possible to use QPI algorithms that can focus objects on an inclined plane or even on a curved surface. In fact, such algorithms can focus objects wherever they happen to be in the depth direction. The ability to focus microscopic objects individually in a single recording is exactly what is needed for microscopy to become practical in non-laboratory environments.

Thanks to AI's sluggishness, the previously impossible is now possible. For the first time, low-cost computers are sufficiently powerful to allow in-process quality assessment using QPI-based microscopy.

In regenerative medicine, the quality of cell-based therapies can thus be determined throughout the treatment cycle - during cell extraction, in therapy production, before treatment and possibly during therapy transportation.

INVESTMENTS

With an emphasis on regenerative medicine and the development of fluorescence capability, the company invested 2 240 (1 266) KSEK in the product, patent, and application development during the period.

FINANCING

Cash, cash equivalents, and unutilized granted credits amounted to 5 416 (28 553) KSEK by the end of the period. The equity ratio was 27 (42) %.

Warrants of series TO 3

On 2 May 2023, the exercise period for warrants of series TO 3 ("TO 3"), which were issued in connection with Phase Holographic Imaging PHI AB's ("PHI" or the "Company") rights issue of units that were announced on 22 February 2022, ended. 3 201 739 warrants of series TO 3 were exercised, corresponding to a subscription ratio of approximately 95.1 percent. Thus, the underwriting commitment relating to TO 3, which the Company agreed on during the exercise period, was activated. The decision on a directed share issue of 163 666 shares, corresponding to the remaining approximately 4.9 percent of the warrant exercise, to the underwriter Altium SA ("Altium") was taken, with the support of the authorization given by the annual general meeting held on 31 October 2022. The proceeds of the TO 3 warrants amount to approximately SEK 12.7 million before the deduction of transaction-related costs, corresponding to a subscription rate of 100 percent.

Warrants of series TO 4

Each warrant of series TO 4 entitles to subscribe for one (1) new share in PHI during the period from and including 12 September 2024 to and including 3 October 2024. The exercise price amounts to 70 % of the volume-weighted average price during a period prior to option redemption, within the interval 0.20 SEK as the lowest, and with 15.45 SEK per new share as the highest exercise price. Upon full exercise of warrants of series TO 4 at the highest exercise price (15.45 SEK per new share), the warrants will provide the company with approximately 20.8 MSEK before issue costs.

Convertibles

The convertible loan to Formue Nord Fokus A/S amounts to 20 230 000 SEK with the following terms:
  • Number of convertibles: 1 700 000 convertibles, which entails the right to subscribe for 1 700 000 new shares.
  • Conversion rates: 11.90 SEK per new share until 2 May 2023 (last day in the exercise period for warrants of series TO 3) and 15.45 SEK per new share from May 3, 2023, until October 16, 2024.
  • Conversion period: the convertible holder is entitled during the period from the date of payment to October 16 2024 to convert the loan into shares.
  • Maturity: in the event that the entire loan is not converted, repayment of the loan and interest must take place no later than October 16, 2024. The company has the right to repay all or part of the convertible loan at any time until the due date, after which Formue Nord has the opportunity to accept repayment or request conversion according to the above conversion rates.
  • Interest: the convertibles run at a quarterly interest rate of 3%.
