Summary of Financial Results for the First Quarter 2024

The Company ended the quarter with $42.9 million in cash and investments. Based on management's current expectations, this capital has the potential to fund the Company through several significant milestones, including the release of initial topline efficacy data from SAVVE, anticipated FDA pre-market approval of the VenoValve, the beginning of preparations for VenoValve commercialization and accelerated plans for the pivotal trial for enVVe.

Cash burn for the quarter was $3.5 million, better than the Company's projected cash burn rate of approximately $4-5 million per quarter.

The Company reported net losses of $5.0 million and $6.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively, representing a decrease in net loss of $1.4 million or 22%, resulting from, as described in further detail below, a decrease in operating expenses of $1.3 million, and an increase in other income of $0.1 million.

For the three months ended March 31, 2024, selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $0.7 million or 22%, to $2.5 million from $3.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023. This was due to share-based compensation, which decreased to $1.2 million in 2024 from $1.9 million in 2023, primarily because of the expense associated with grants made in 2021, which was $0.7 million lower in 2024 than in 2023.

For the three months ended March 31, 2024, research and development expenses decreased by $0.5 million or 14%, to $3.1 million from $3.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023. This decrease primarily resulted from $0.9 million in lower costs related the SAVVE study as the study was fully enrolled during 2023 resulting in the reduction of outreach and enrollment related activities and related costs. This decrease was offset by $0.3 million increase in personnel costs to support SAVVE and enVVe development, and $0.2 million in lab costs related to enVVe development.

About enVVeno Medical Corporation

enVVeno Medical (NASDAQ:NVNO) is an Irvine, California-based, late clinical-stage medical device Company focused on the advancement of innovative bioprosthetic (tissue-based) solutions to improve the standard of care for the treatment of venous disease. The Company's lead product, the VenoValve®, is a potential first-in-class surgical replacement venous valve being developed for the treatment of deep venous Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI). The Company is also developing a non-surgical, transcatheter based replacement venous valve for the treatment of deep venous CVI called enVVe®. CVI occurs when valves inside of the veins of the leg become damaged, resulting in the backwards flow of blood (reflux), blood pooling in the lower leg, increased pressure in the veins of the leg (venous hypertension) and in severe cases, venous ulcers that are difficult to heal and become chronic. Both the VenoValve and enVVe are designed to act as one-way valves, to help assist in propelling blood up the leg, and back to the heart and lungs. The VenoValve is currently being evaluated in the SAVVE U.S. pivotal trial and the Company is currently performing the final testing necessary to seek approval for the enVVe pivotal trial.
