G Medical Innovations NMPA Approval
G Medical Innovations Holdings Ltd (ASX:GMV) rallied by more than 40% on the confirmation of the lifting of suspension that had barred the trading of the stock. The rally also comes hot on the heels of the company providing reasons as to why it is yet to obtain NMPA approval for its medical devices.
The company was poised to receive NMPA approval in the first half of the year. However, the same had to be pushed back, following the death of Chief Principal Investigator, a development that triggered delays in clinical trials.
The NMPA committee has since commenced the process of nominating and approving a new principal investigator to carry out the review and adopt ongoing clinical trials. The company has already submitted new clinical trial protocols, one from the Guangzhou Women and Children’s Medical Center and the other from the Zhujiang Hospital of Southern Medical University.
The biotechnology company remains confident of securing NMPA approval as ongoing clinical trials have passed all tests. The company has also received a formal notification indicating it has passed all requirements of the NMPA as part of regulators’ mid-term auditing process.
Strengthening investor confidence in the stock also stems from the delivery of impressive financial results for the first half of the year. The company says it generated revenues amounting to $2.9 million more than double revenues of $1 million reported for the same period last year. Net loss in the first half of the year also shrunk from $8.5 million to $6.8 million.
