HeartBeam Completes $25 Million Capital Raise and Updates 2023 Strategic Focus and Financial Guidance

HeartBeam, Inc. (NASDAQ: BEAT), a cardiac technology company that has developed the first and only 3D-vector electrocardiogram (VECG) platform to help physicians detect heart attacks anytime, anywhere as well as diagnose other common heart conditions today announced closing of its secondary offering of 16,666,666 shares of HeartBeam’s common stock. This financing will allow HeartBeam to fund its upcoming clinical and regulatory milestones related to its HeartBeam AIMIGo™ system and prepare for commercialization in 2024.

“We are extremely pleased to have received this additional funding, which will allow us to achieve our important upcoming milestones and extends our cash runway into late 2024”

HeartBeam received net proceeds of $23.2 million from the offering, after deducting the placement agent discounts and commissions and offering expenses.

Public Ventures LLC acted as placement agent for the offering.

HeartBeam has adjusted its strategic focus to enable timely delivery of its breakthrough ambulatory VECG products, the Company’s key future value drivers, as follows:

  • Immediately focus on obtaining an FDA 510(k) clearance for the HeartBeam AIMIGo credit card- sized VECG device, followed by a second 510(k) clearance on the system’s ability to synthesize an electrocardiogram (ECG). The goal of this second FDA clearance is to demonstrate that HeartBeam’s synthesized 12-lead ECG is equivalent to standard recorded 12-lead ECGs. These clearances provide a key value creation path, as they will enable physicians to remotely monitor patients and immediately interpret any concerning cardiac events.
  • Demonstrate through clinical trials in 2023 the performance of the HeartBeam AIMIGo platform, which we believe is the most advanced ambulatory cardiac detection platform available. HeartBeam believes this will drive clinical and patient adoption.
  • Shift the commercial launch until obtaining the 510(k) clearance for 12-lead equivalence. The company plans to submit this application to the FDA in late 2023 and pursue initial commercialization in 2024.
  • Undertake an aggressive pre-commercial effort to define initial market segments and identify potential business partners.
  • Continue aggressive development of its intellectual property through our partnership with PatentVest, a unified technology development and patent law firm focused on creating IP leadership for development stage technology companies. The partnership is clearly focused on the goal of creating clear leadership in the area of ambulatory VECG cardiac detection.
  • Add world leading Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) to our Medical Advisory Board to help guide our clinical and regulatory development. These Advisory Board members will be announced in the near future.

As a result of these strategic goals, we are updating our financial guidance and expect no material commercial revenue for 2023.

“We are extremely pleased to have received this additional funding, which will allow us to achieve our important upcoming milestones and extends our cash runway into late 2024,” said Branislav Vajdic, Ph.D. HeartBeam Founder and CEO. “We are also excited to be working with Public Ventures, which is an outstanding strategic partner with a long track record of helping companies grow and realize their full potential. The strategic focus we are announcing today are important steps for us to demonstrate the value of our novel VECG technology and to achieve the clinical and regulatory milestones to bring these important products into the hands of physicians and patients.”

Christopher Marlett, Co-Founder and CEO of Public Ventures, added, “HeartBeam has the potential to positively impact the lives of millions of people, to change the standard of care, and to be the leader in the emerging area of ambulatory VECG. We are pleased to be supporting the Company as it executes on this vision, and we believe that it has the plan in place to achieve its goals.”
