Nutriband CEO Publishes Letter to Shareholders

Published

ORLANDO, FL / ACCESSWIRE / January 26, 2024 / Nutriband Inc. ("Company") (NASDAQ:NTRB)(NASDAQ:NTRBW) today announced that CEO Gareth Sheridan has published a letter to shareholders providing insights on achievements and targets through 2023 and the potential outlook for 2024. The full text of the letter is below.

Dear Shareholders,

As we wrapped up a successful 2023 and our annual shareholder meeting this week, the entire team at Nutriband would like to extend our warmest appreciation to all of you for your continued support throughout the year and into 2024. Many of you have been with us from the beginning and many more joined our common goal along the way. This goal is to change the world for the better by creating technology designed to improve the safety standard of easily abused transdermal drugs while simultaneously focusing on making these safer treatments available to patients who require them. Your support has been paramount as we strive to reduce potential dilution to shareholders, a primary goal of the management team. We have dedicated ourselves to developing a portfolio of transdermal pharmaceutical products and made significant strides these past 12 months showcasing AVERSA in London and garnering recognition for our innovative technology by peers in the pharmaceutical field, receiving multiple award nominations at the 2023 Pharma industry awards.

The USPTO's issuance of new IP in 2023 for Nutriband's AVERSA technology improves our position to bring our leading product platform to market. This underscores our commitment to innovate and address potential drug abuse and misuse in prescribed drugs currently used by patients around the globe. The new year has already been highlighted by a significant milestone with the signing of a Commercial Development and Clinical Supply Agreement with Kindeva Drug Delivery. It marks a transition to commercial scale development for AVERSA Fentanyl, shifting our focus from feasibility towards potential commercialization. AVERSA Fentanyl combines Nutriband's proprietary abuse-deterrent transdermal technology with Kindeva's FDA approved transdermal fentanyl patch system with the potential to become the world's first opioid pain patch with abuse deterrent properties. AVERSA Fentanyl is estimated to potentially reach peak annual sales of $80M - $200M1. AVERSA Buprenorphine, our next candidate for AVERSA was further estimated to potential reach peak annual sales of $70M - $130M.

Financially, the team is excited by strong revenue growth reported in 2023 from our Pocono Pharma subsidiary which we are working to improve upon further in 2024. Pocono and our subsidiaries are an important part of our company structure to reduce our burn rate through the clinical development process. We have recently strengthened our balance sheet converting $2 million of debt into equity with a large strategic shareholder as outlined in recent filings.Our marketing initiatives, particularly the collaboration with KT Tape, are expected to significantly expand our potential revenue growth for 2024.

In 2023, we also launched our own Active Intelligence (AI Tape) Brand portfolio simultaneously announcing Ex NFL Quarterback Donovan McNabb as brand ambassador. This new line includes our new Heating and Cooling Kinesiology Tape. All AI Tape products are manufactured in the USA at Nutriband's facility in Cherryville, North Carolina, and are available for purchase on Amazon and Activeintell.com. These new initiatives have expanded our revenue opportunities, reducing our potential capital needs as we continue the development of AVERSA and its regulatory pathway.

Our 2024 goals are ambitious yet achievable, focused on FDA pre-IND and IND meetings in the near term, the HAL Study for Aversa Fentanyl, new potential partnerships, and targeting an NDA submission before our Year End.

Sincerely,

Gareth Sheridan

CEO, Nutriband Inc.
